Biography

Having released six albums over a 14 year period and climbed to the top of what was respectfully termed the New Wave of American Metal hierarchy, Massachusetts-based quintet Shadows Fall made a deliberate decision. Instead of writing between tours and then quickly recording in order to make a tight deadline, as they’ve done in the past, the band chose to stay off the road for a full year ...

Editorial Reviews

This album is meant to be a companion piece to The War Within. It contains six originals songs written during those sessions, newly re-recorded versions of all the B-sides that were previously unavailable in the U.S. as well as a few cover songs for good measure. These songs cover everything you have come to expect from us." This is SHADOWS FALL at its very best proving, once again, that they are the undeniable leaders of the current hard rock/metal

Customer Reviews

This is the best album to date from Shadows Fall.

This song, which was originally done by Dangerous Toys, is definitely the most interesting and memorable of the covers, because it's very weird and even funny.

Next time you're in Best Buy, or another CD store dont forget to pick this one up!!!

Two years ago, Shadows Fall broke-out of the metal underground with "The War Within", and by releasing "Fallout From The War", Shadows Fall are officially letting go of Century Media and moving on to greener pastures. Considering they want to transition to a major label as soon as possible, releasing an album which is a collection of b-sides, reworked older songs, and cover tunes isn't a very surprising move for the band to make. And nothing on "Fallout From The War" should really leave Shadows Fall fans in shock and awe, either. Just like the songs on "The War Within", these b-sides are full to the brim with bullying riffs, pounding drums, and frontman Brian Fair's wailing (occasionally singing) voice. But what is surprising is that these songs hold up as well as, maybe better than, anything on that 2004 album!

The first six tracks are "The War Within" outtakes. Opener "In Effigy" is fueled by a propulsive, metallic, chugging guitar lead and fast drum work (including a powerful double bass). "Will To Rebuild" continues in that same vein, with both guitarists playing blazing leads and fiery riffs as they seemingly compete against each other, and Jason Bittner lays down some swift, heavy drum patterns. "Haunting Me Endlessly" is another intense thrasher. Track five, "Carpal Tunnel", slows things down for a little while and features some nice, clean singing, but even this song has some more heavy riffs and a somewhat wild solo. The proceeding two songs, "Going, Going, Gone" and track seven, a re-recorded version of the decade old "Deadworld", both boast explosive, catchy, muscular rhythms and blistering guitars.

"This Is My Own" is this disc's only b-side from Shadows Fall's 2002 album, "The Art of Balance".

Shadows Fall have done it again. This is by far the heaviest album I've ever heard by these boys from Massachussetts. This definitely won't leave my CD player for awhile.

As previously mentioned, Fallout From The War is a companion disc to The War Within. By comparing between the two, you can really tell the difference. The War Within is more technical in terms of guitar playing than Fallout From The War. Fallout From The War is heavier & faster than The War Within. The War Within has more & longer guitar solos than Fallout From The War. The list goes on and on.

I would've given this 5 stars if it weren't for the last song, Teasn', Pleasn'. It's an okay song, but I felt like it wasn't a good song to close with. The other 2 covers, December & Mark Of The Squealer, are really good though.

Stand-outs include: In Effigy, Will To Rebuild, Going Going Gone, Deadworld, December, and Mark Of The Squealer.

Although I wasn't a particular fan of The War Within to begin with, this seems like a pretty solid record for a bunch of toss-outs from the album. I would probably even go far enough to say that these songs actually compromise a better album than The War Within. More thrash. More brutality. Some good harmony lines in there and the drums are constantly fast. If you're into Trivium or any old school thrash (Metallica, Megadeth) than get this. Even if you don't like it, it's worth a listen.

This is the best album to date from Shadows Fall. I love listening to these guys. They are a very tallented bunch. I didn't think they could improve on "War Within" but they proved they have what it takes to go far and put out quality music. If you are a fan of ANY of thier other albums, get this one. You will put the others on the shelf and carry this one wherever you go.

I just bought this CD about an hour ago and gave it a listen. In typical Shadows Fall form, it is brutally heavy and precise. However, breaking the mold from the pattern of CDs, it didn't seem to break any new ground for them. I understand that this is a companion to The War Within, but most of the songs sounded as if they had gone through a Shadows Fall song machine. I hate to say this, but even the solos sounded like afterthoughts. I've heard some Shadows Fall solos that completely blew my mind, but for Jon & Matt, these seemed like they improvised them after 2 days straight of staying awake. It was odd, because I had to look down every so often to see if the song had actually changed or not. I'm a big fan of diversity in my recordings, so it could just be me.

Let me point out, however, that Jason Bittner proves why he was voted #1 metal drummer over the past few years. His drumming on this CD reminded me of the Slipknot concert I went to about a year ago...except that it was catchier. He masterfully shows his technical skill, playing a million miles an hour and executing double bass beats and blasts that would make Chris Adler jealous. The way that he does this AND is able to make a beat that you can tap your foot to...he's great. I was going to give this CD 3 stars (I make it sound like it's a horrible CD...it's not. It's good, but just not up to par with other Shadows Fall recordings), but after hearing Jason's drumming, I bumped it up.

Summary: If you are a true Shadows Fall fan, pick this up. It'll be necessary for your collection, and it has the distinctive markings of their other recordings. If you are on the borderline anyway, I'd say wait until it goes on sale. It's worth money just to hear Jason's playing anyway.
