A brilliant blend of progressive metal and old school thrash
How is it I've never heard of the guys until now? Germany's Face Down Hero have just released their sixth album, False Evidence Appearing Real, and it's my introduction to the band. What an introduction it is! They have the same ferocious riffs as the thrash metal titans of the late 80's, the melodic attack of Kreator, and a touch of progression like BTBAM. The production is stellar, as it brings out every nuance of all the instruments. Songs such as 'Nation Fractured' and The Newborn Me' could have been released in the early 90's. Listening to this album has been a breath of fresh air and I'll be investing in these guys' back catalog!
