Heroes Will Fall

Heroes Will Fall – The Red Chapter
By Xander Rich

One thing is abundantly clear about 20 seconds into “Fight Or Flight”, the first track on the album by Heroes Will Fall – Justin Peyatt has a killer set of pipes.

Double-kick drums, melodic choruses and just raw, adrenaline-laced metal screams are what complete The Red Chapter, an 8-song album written, recorded and produced by the band themselves. Drummer Fred Rabideau plays tight and precise beats that honestly make you wanna pop it into 5th and speed past the cops on I-4 (although I wouldn’t recommend it).

By the time I got to “Apple Tree Empathy” though, I felt myself wanting more. There’s no question of the tightness of the band, and that’s SO hard to come by. I just felt like the tracks needed a little more of a separate identity. I’ve heard countless bands that have a singer who can scream like he’s being murdered, a bass player that plays complicated “what the #$%k did he just play” runs, and a guitarist that can be classified as nothing else but a grade-A shredder, but the uniqueness of the songs is always what stands out to me, and while the musical talent is not a question in my mind, I’m looking forward to the next level “The Red Chapter” takes them to.

I like this sound, and I like this album. It keeps me wanting to pay attention to what’s next from these guys.
