Ready, Set, Fall! Airs New One!
Remember Ready, Set, Fall!? We put up a very brief post about them in early May and at least I was positively surprised by their cunning catchiness in the shape of Metalcorian Melodeath. It’s not that they’re approaching their game from an original angle of attack or anything; there are about a gazillion other bands that take pretty much the same approach. But they do seem to do it better than most.
That approach is chugging, spiced-up harsh verses and melodic, catchy clean sung choruses. You’re bound to know a bunch of other bands that do this. RSF’s Skyscrapers really got me hooked and grew on me every time I heard it. They haven’t much changed their recipe with Buried Alive, the single to their freshly released Buried EP, which HarveyD tipped us off about.
He says about the EP: “the entire thing is massively epic in my opinion, but then again, I just went for a mile run in 104 degree weather. The EP’s title track Buried Alive has a very groovy bass lick in the intro. It’s essentially the same format as Skyscrapers with the oh to familiar Core-ish verses and the drastically over used clean singing in the chorus. However, why fix something that isn’t broken”. Indeed, although the song isn’t quite as crunchy and fierce as Skyscrapers, other than that it’s a winner again.
The Buried EP is available worldwide through iTunes (not available as a hard copy, yet!). You can also check out the band’s Facebook for more info and goodies.
