Babylonfall – Collapse

Inverse Records release: April 24th 2020

Finland seems to be THE nation for Melodic Death Metal and Babylonfall is another act in this genre that a fan simply has to know.

A bit of Children of Bodom, a bit of Before The Dawn, a bit of Soilwork, a bit of Insomnium, plus some more ingredients like -Core, Post-Metal, Prog – this alone should make you curious about this debut album. The songs offer a variety of styles and gimmicks without an annoying over-complexity, and somehow manage to sound catchy and even epic (Blood Will Be My Crown or Stars and Constellations, see also clip below). Lyrical themes of the album deal with “collapsing” on a personal and societal level. Which means it’s like a comment on the current situation – quite unplanned, as the songs were recorded and mixed in late 2018 and early 2019 at Deep Noise Studios in Kouvola, Finland, by Saku Moilanen. Mastering was done at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden by Tony Lindgren. The cover art was done by Finnish artist Petri Lampela.

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
