Dead To Fall - Everything I Touch Falls To Pieces

Victory, 2002, CD

This is another one of these At The Gates / In Flames inspired newer death metal bands from the start of the last decade. By then all the nu-metal, pop-punk and certainly ska-punk had drained out of everyone's consciousness to the extent that there was much more interest in this type of metal. A lot of bands sprung up and you had a few on Victory like Darkest Hour obviously.

It's a more timeless kind of metal than some of the other rock and metal variations that become fashionable and it has technicality and brutality to it and a certain spiritual quality. They play it quite well with the usual melodic riffs and beatdowns and screamed vocals. It reminds me most of As I Lay Dying but they deserve to be taken in their own right for what they have achieved here with their first ful-length which puts them towards the top end of the spectrum.

The only thing I would say is that I would prefer to hear a more cohesive record that feels like each song is part of a larger piece and a more grander epic feel throughout but obviously this is their first record and there is enough to make you want to listen again and go see them live.
