Los Angeles act Fallen Figure has issued the following update about recruiting a new bassist and drummer:
"As some of you may noticed at our recent shows, things are looking a little different. For one, we are now a full five piece band and sounding thicker and sexier then ever thanks to the addition of ex-Aybsmal Dawn bass player Carlos Arriola. You also may have noticed that Gabe turned white, don't be alarmed...I'm just making a tasteless race joke. But in all seriousness, we're sad to inform you that Gabe, one of our best friends and one of the sickest drummers that we've ever had the privilege of playing with is no longer a part of Fallen Figure. We shared some fucking awesome times with him in never ending van rides filled with his giggles and snores. We will miss you bro! In the end, Gabe wound up being bound to a job in Los Angeles which kept him from being able to commit himself fully to this band and achieving the collective dream that we set out to live.
"We want to be on the road constantly, and he just couldn't position himself to do that with us. Gabe will still be around the area tearing shit up with his new band Euphoric Defilement and doing session work for anybody willing. With that being said, we'd like to announce the addition of our new drummer Nick Ursich. He's a retardedly talented drummer that has already brought in a whole new vibe and element to our existing songs and live shows. We can't wait to see what our new material will morph into with these two new ingredients added to the mix.
"What the future holds, no one knows. But what is certain is that we will be here, writing music, then recording that music, and then sitting in a dirty van for hours upon hours to play that music for you! So be a pal, come to a show and check out our set, some merch, have fun and make new friends, then drive home, tell all your old friends about us, go to sleep, wake up, take a morning dump, and live the rest of your lives. We will have more updates soon, so stay posted!"
Each week in "Unearthing the Metal Underground," we'll be putting a few quality underground bands in the spotlight in an attempt to get the word out about them. This week I am exploring the Los Angeles metal scene.
If you live in Los Angeles, or have been to a metal show, whether it be death metal, thrash metal, or just metal, you may have become accustomed to watching several unsigned bands perform before an advertised lineup start their sets. As soon as you're inside the venue, the bands set up, and they finally play. Sometimes, these bands make your want to run into a brick wall, head first, because they are an awful, yet convoluted noise somehow crushed on top of fingernails scratching across a chalk board. But, on rare occasions, you finally notice a band that would be, in your eyes, considered an artist in the making. Here are three unsigned metal bands from Los Angeles and surrounding areas that definitely need to be heard and given a chance in the world of heavy metal. More...
