Guest review by
Arian Totalis
"Fallout From the War", being Shadows Falls fifth studio effort, is a dramatic change from their normal playing style. Even though their first and second albums differ from their third and fourth, they still maintained key similarities. Such similarities were brutal vocals mixed with occasional clean singing, very melodic and technical riffs, good musicianship, and above the standard performance. This album is TOTALLY different. Elements in this album are mediocre performance, mediocre musicianship, very little growling and more clean singing, mediocre melodies, and semi-technical riffs, not to mention the overly layered production and obvious efforts toward a more commercial sound. The very first page of the inside of the album booklet says "prepare for the fallout." They have no idea how accurate they were with such a statement, because upon the release of this album, they had fallen out of good terms with loyal fans and into the pocket of corporate whores.
