Dead To Fall Call It Quits

DEAD TO FALL, the Chicago- and Minneapolis-based deathcore band, has officially split up.

Commented vocalist Jonathan Hunt: "DEAD TO FALL is no more. After nine years, it's time to say goodbye. There really isn't an easy way to say this, but the DEAD TO FALL machine broke beyond repair this last weekend. I guess the financial, personal, and emotional strains wore some of us down and caused a violent collapse."

"After a show in Wisconsin, Logan [Kelly, guitar] and Chad [M. Fjerstad, bass] quit this past weekend. I won't go into the whole 'behind-the-music-band-break-up' scenario, but it was a night filled with retarded actions and words. The rest of us don't want to go through yet another major lineup change and really are just ready for a new chapter in our lives."

"The Supermassive Fist tour with IMPENDING DOOM, ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS and SEA OF TREACHERY is continuing on without us. We have no idea if we are going to play a last show or not, but at this point there is nothing planned."

"It's all so surreal. I have spent a good portion of my life touring in DEAD TO FALL and life without it is going to be...interesting. It's like breaking up with four girlfriends you work with the day your place of employment burns down. I'm going to miss it for sure."

"Keep your eyes open for future projects from all of us, and make sure you go to the Supermassive Fist tour and check it out."

Formed in 1999, DEAD TO FALL drew influences from Swedish metal, hardcore, death metal, and other genres, but was usually labeled a metalcore, or deathcore, band. The group's first two albums reached combined sales of 60,000 copies in the U.S. alone (according to publicity material released through Victory Records). TO FALL's fourth album, "Are You Serious?", was released on February 19 via Victory.

This band was actually quite heavy and impressive. The debut album was awesome. Too bad they were on Victory records...

I just checked them out. They shouldn't have split up but rather never have started. They were terrible.

I've never really been a very big fan of this band but they are talented musicians. And to post 6, they aren't deathcore.

The only song that I've actually listened to that stuck with me was "Major Rager" just because it's really out there. It's so corny but for some reason this is the only one of their songs that has ever got stuck in my head.

Dead to Fall - Major Rager
From: Are You Serious?
"Someone crank this sh** and turn this room into a circle pit.
Go grab a beer, and take a hit to quell your fear.
Tonight is gonna be as much fun as we make it.
The party just started. OH sh**! I'm already naked.

THIS COULD BE THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE
LET'S GET ANOTHER CASE AND STAY UP ALL f***ING NIGHT

Empty cans on the floor.
Someone's head comes crashing through the door.
This party is really getting out of control.
The insides of the fridge are nailed to the wall.
Oh sh** - That dude who lives here looks f***ing p***ed.

PAIN is all my head will feel when i wake up.
I DON'T CARE - So pour me out another f***ing cup

THIS COULD BE THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE
Let's get another case and stay up all f***ing night.

Listen up!
Every single one of you kids listen up!
This party is out of f***ing control!
My Mom is going to kill me when she gets home!
Are you serious?
WHAT THE f***!?

SOMEONE THREW A BRICK INTO MY TV!
IT WASN'T US - We were all outside smoking trees.
WHERE'S MY PHONE?!!? I'm gonna call the f***ing cops.
f*** IT! I'M WAY TOO DRUNK - So let's all do another shot.

The night is ending cuz the sun is comin' up.
Does anyone have a lighter to spark up these blunts?
The party was TOTALLY INSANE!
I'm gonna pass out in the van.
Tomorrow - Let's do it again.

THIS COULD BE THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE.
LET'S GET ANOTHER CASE AND STAY UP ALL f***ING NIGHT.
THIS IS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE."

Some of the corniest lyrics I've ever heard.

To post 13 - Dead to Fall are sometimes referred to as Death Core, but more often known as Metalcore. I found it in Wikipedia - so who knows about the integrity of the article.

Those lyrics are taken from the band's final album. It was meant to be a parody of the metal scene, something like that. I read it in Metal Edge, or Metal Maniacs. They were basically goofing off when they wrote it. You should try looking up the lyrics to the first album, and second one. I still believe that this band was pretty good.

Yeah I remember watching Head Banger's Ball and Victory Records was promoting the hell out of their first album....it looked cool, though, like good vs. evil....The cover looked bad a$$. Dead To Fall is brutal, invigorating metal..so it is a shame to lose this talented band.

I never considered them deathcore from what I heard - just metalcore. But I haven't heard their whole discography either.

To post 20 - I completely agree. Martyr A.D. was short-lived, but great, as well.
