Labeling themselves as “Hybrid Metal”, Fall of Earth‘s sound is a contagious mélange of genres, that is continuously being refined. The primary elements come from progressive, death, and thrash, and over time, they find a lot of their tracks becoming longer, more epic, and more dynamic becoming more melodic and groove-oriented, as well as utilizing a healthy balance between heavy sections and clean sections. The latest iteration of the Canadian quartet can be experienced with their recently released sophomore album “From the Ashes”.

Since writing their second album “From the Ashes”Fall OF Earth says that they have a better understanding of what they want their music to become and where to steer the direction of their future works. All across the board, their lyrics come from a very personal place and hold a serious connotation.

Creative, unpredictable, and melodic, with a wide variety of influences, Fall Of Earth offers a little bit of something for everyone.

“Fresh Tracks: Fall of Earth offers a smorgasboard of metal on From the Ashes… What if a band took numerous metal genres and combined them to form a monstrous kaiju ? This is the modus operandi of Edmonton’s Fall of Earth. Known more succinctly as “hybrid metal,” Fall of Earth’s sound encompasses death, thrash, progressive, metalcore; you name it, they have it cranked to 11″ – Edmonton Journal

“From the Ashes is an impressive album that showcases Fall of Earth’s growth as musicians and their ability to create powerful, impactful music. The band’s unique sound and technical skill are on full display, and Rye’s vocals are a standout feature throughout the album. From the Ashes is a must-listen for any Metal fan, and Fall of Earth is a band to keep an eye on in the future. Look for them on tour in Canada and many other places.” – Metal Express Radio

“A young and rising Canadian Progressive Death Metal and Metalcore act will attack your senses mercilessly with their incendiary and very personal sophomore album.” – The Headbanging Moose

“A young and rising band from Edmonton kicked some ass armed with their Progressive Death Metal and Metalcore where rock will never die in Toronto last night…. if they’re playing in your city anytime soon don’t miss the chance to watch one of the most promising names from the Canadian Prairies.” – Headbanging Moose (Live Review – June 18, 2023 – Toronto – The Rockpile)

“Whether you see them on stage on the screen, Fall of Earth is truly a force of nature and if you’re looking for one of Canada’s next big metal bands right before they blow up, look no further!” – Dropout Ent. (Live Review – Toronto – June 2023)

“It is an extreme variety of the form we get here, and one that at the core level is defined by seamless transitions between extreme metal, thrash metal and power metal. But in between we also get quirkier parts more aligned with progressive metal, and more interestingly from a progressive point of view we also get a liberal array of acoustic and semi-acoustic passages and interludes with a more delicate and atmospheric laden style, form and orientation. The vocals come with the same amount of versatility, with harsh and melodic lead vocals being the main forms used. A production to seek out by those with an interest in a powerful and vibrant variety of extreme progressive metal expanded with a liberal array of delicate and atmospheric laden interludes.” – Progressor

“Progressive metal, with a bit of a tech death thing going on. clean and harsh vox. cool stuff” – WORT 89.9 FM (Madison, WI)

“The nine songs present some real diversity in the genre by embracing several different approaches” – Metal Temple

“Listen to Fall of Earth lead singer Alex Rye belt out the title track of the metal band’s sophomore album, From the Ashes, and you’d swear it was Beelzebub himself growling and grunting from the bowls of hell. Then hear Rye’s speak over the phone. No demonic images whatsoever. Just the sound of a well-spoken young man sporting a velvety voice that would be right at home accompanying a mainstream ad plugging the latest in SUVs.” – Sault Star (Sault Ste. Marie, ON)

“Fall of Earth coming to Victoria – Hybrid metal is sure to electrify the crowds… To say Fall of Earth is a work in progress is anything but a negative review of this immensely talented group of musicians.” – Monday Magazine (Victoria, BC)

“a mélange of genres with elements of progressive, death, and thrash.” – Penticton Western News (Penticton, BC)

“hybrid-metal heroes… It’s not your average Canadian band that can secure opening-support slots for popular American extreme-metal acts as Metal Blade recording artists Allegaeon, but then again Fall of Earth is certainly not your average Canadian band.” – E-Know (Cranbrook, BC)

“For Edmonton’s Fall of Earth, the Road to Purgatory is one that they’ve decided will take them across the country.” – Barrie Today (Barrie, ON)
