Fall Silent- Superstructure
Fall Silent is a Hardcore and Metalcore band from Reno, Nevada. This album was released by Revolutionary Power Tools in 1999. I have always loved bands from Reno starting with 7 Seconds and Zoinks! two great punk rock bands. Then also from Reno are two great hardcore bands Unconquered and Fall Silent. I first heard Fall Silent back when Superstructure came out and I had never heard anything like it. The pace of this album is so incredibly fast and the vocals are absolutely maniacal. Fast signature time changes and blast beats are all over this amazing record. Strained throaty vocals are also present and very demonic riffing is played flawlessly. Fall Silent is so brutal and in your face on this album that Superstructure could be called a powerviolence record. To my knowledge powerviolence is not really a term that we use today so I would still call this a Hardcore and Metalcore album. This music takes you for a ride that never slows down and never stops. Fall Silent will never let up for a second because their music is completely relentless. Riffs feel as heavy as sledgehammers and screaming vocals sound like a rabid pitbull. This release is very original and unique sounding because Fall Silent was forging their own path of music excellence and total destruction on Superstructure. They even recorded a Journey cover for this record with an entertaining twist. This is such an amazing album because when it came out I had never heard anything like it and to this day I still have never heard anything like it. If you like your music filled with total aural destruction and massive doses of speed then Superstructure by Fall Silent is the music for you. This is a classic Reno album just as good as classic albums by 7 Seconds.
