IF HE DIES, HE DIES - The Rise... the Fall - CD - Friction Records - 2008

review by: Roberto Martinelli

If He Dies, He Dies has an aggressive, technical, busy take on an often bluesy approach to heavy metal. The Rise... the Fall benefits from an excellent rhythm section, some exciting riffing, and a huge, satisfying bass tone. The drums are punchy and crisp, and the guitars meaty and assertive. The songs are engaging and interesting, but the vocals, which are average/mediocre gruff guy screaming, are too prominent and unmusical, and they often get in the way rather than make the songs better. If youíre more into bluesy metal, or like bands on labels like At a Loss, then give If He Dies, He Dies a listen on the Internet to see if itís worth a purchase. (6/10)
