The metal crew known as Alone have released their latest LP album, “Why Do We Fall…” The record contains 13 original tracks for an approximate total listening time approaching a full hour, making for a comprehensive and generous introduction to this innovative and imaginative band from Poland. It has been released on the Studio Alone independent record label. With warlike, hammering drums, chunky, thrashing and wailing guitars, and melodic vocals which are varied and arresting, “Why Do We Fall…” by Alone is an album to which fans of all kinds of metal should pay attention.
Alone cite as main artistic influences bands like Linkin Park, Rammstein, Slipknot, Korn, Disturbed, Red, and Bring Me the Horizon. Elements of each of these can be easily discerned in their style, which sounds less melodramatic than any of the above while retaining a degree of epic theatricality which forms a key characteristic of their mood and tone. Songs on “Why Do We Fall…” are written with plenty of texture and can differ from one another in surprising ways, each of them helping to build what results in a towering fortress of a metal record that Alone can stand on for years to come, though chances are fans can look forward to more music from these highly creative persons before long.
Asked to describe the overall message of their new record, Alone say little, choosing only to quote from what may be the most poignant and widely recognized line from the work of William Butler Yeats: “But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
Alone’s official bio describes them as a rock-oriented band founded in 2006. Their music is a blend of rock, numetal, electronica and film scores. They are a multiple-award-winning group, their accolades including two first-place awards at the Rhythms of Lodz Festival, 2008; a second-place award at Chelmstock, 2008; and first place at the Global Battle of the Bands, 2008. In 2011, the band won their second Elimination Public Award at Rock am Ring, at which they competed against more than 50 bands from all of Europe. More recently, they garnered the Public Award from the Emergenza Festival Finals in Lodz, 2014. Their full-concert DVD was released in April of the same year.
“Why Do We Fall…” by Alone is available online worldwide. Metal fans should get in early.
