70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

As Paradise Falls Posts "Star Blind" Video

Australian metal outfit As Paradise Falls just unleashed a brand new video single called "Star Blind." This is the first single from forthcoming full-length album "Digital Ritual," which is set for a summer 2017 release. The band comments:

"The song 'Star Blind' is meant to explore the culture of celebrity in western society. In recent years, thanks to the advent of social media, the traditional model of what famous is or was has changed by epidemic proportions. The idea of fame hasn't always been seen as such a high goal to so many people. But what was a sometimes blurry line between fame and infamy is now pretty indistinguishable by people who seek validation in a world where it's so hard to find value in themselves. In the current modern digital culture, We need to value substance more than ever."

In November 2015, while As Paradise Falls came towards the end of recording a debut album at Karma Sound Studios in Thailand, the band was invited to support I Killed the Prom Queen in Bangkok. Tragically, the night before the show, guitarist Glen Barrie suddenly passed away in his sleep, leading to a halt in progress to give each member time to grieve the loss of their brother.

As Paradise Falls goes on to say, "Originally we started recording the album in November 2015 and in the last week of our time sadly our guitarist Glen Barrie passed away in his sleep due to a sleep disorder, Sleep Apnoea. We took a little time to sort ourselves out and due to personal issues we separated with our vocalist. We then recouped and we were joined by Jimmy Upson on guitar and our new vocalist Shaun Coar joined where we recorded his vocals in a Brisbane Studio with Adam Merker.

"Whilst he was finishing his duties filling in on tour throughout USA & Europe with Aussie band Feed Her To The Sharks, we went back to Bangkok to add in these vocals and mix and master the album with Shane in October 2016. So this album is of huge significance to us and we’re more than happy to talk about Glen and promote this release as a celebration of his life and something his son can remember him by when he is old enough!"
