9 Fake Reasons-Days of Downfall

I look up from my studying haze, it's been three hours, time for a lunch break. But first, while the food is being cooked, I got to take a minute to cover 9 Fake Reasons one of the most exciting bands to be coming out of the Paris metal scene right now. Their new record Days of Downfall is a testament to the enduring power of heavy metal music with all of its groove, grit, and magic. With a rapid evolution from previous material, 9 Fake Reasons are really coming into their own as musicians and proving that they may very well be this generations rock heroes.

9 Fake Reasons really just get to the magical heart of rock and roll with Days of Downfall. While at first, this record is easily digestible, when you get into it you find that there are a lot of layers here. The production is top notch and the flashy solos hidden underneath big choruses add a lot of flavor. The riffs here are especially tasty, almost every single one has a big hook and a chunky groove. Digging into the memorable songs found on Days of Downfall is a pleasure, and honestly I am very impressed at how evolved the sound is. 9FakeReasons have had no trouble really figuring out who they are and what makes their sound so special, and this allows them to go forth and prosper.

With engaging song structures and a straightforward approach, Days of Downfall is the sort of record that will stand up against the test of time. It has party songs, rockers, and more mournful pieces. The band tries to show us their take on the human experience with Days of Downfall and to a great extent they pull it off with aplomb. I'm excited to hear more from these guys in the near future and I'm sure that their live show has only gotten better since I last caught them in July. One of the best albums to come off Dooweet in a long time, I'm excited to hear what the future holds for this simply stunning band.
