all else fails


Following up their 2011 album The Oracle, What Was, Is, and Could Have Been, All Else Fails has returned with their new 5 song EP, Fucktropolis. When the disc starts spinning, world population statistics are thrown at the listener. Soon after we get a big blast of fucking metal. Not only is it this blast loud, but it’s the heaviest fucking thing AEF has ever written. It’s still their brand of metalcore, with aggressive shouts/thrashing riffs and melodic choruses BUT, they have intensified their song writing – a key factor being drummer Shane Tym delivering hard-hitting beats that just pierce the songs.

July 30th 2013 marks the date of All Else Fails’ heaviest and most diverse release, Fucktropolis unleashed via Suicidal Bride Records. Heavy with a dark beauty, this highly anticipated five track EP, the band’s 4th release will solidly place All Else Fails amongst the best in their genre. The first single “Better Left Undead” is now streaming via SoundCloud below.

Canadian melodic metallers All Else Fails have posted their newest music video for their latest single “Rebirth”.

Canadian metal bands emerge seemingly from out of nowhere; each one striving to make a name for themselves. Try as they might, very few succeed and are eventually swallowed up becoming just “another band”. All Else Fails however, are one of the few strong enough to have fought their way to the creation of their first full-length, Against The Darkening Sky.

Set to release their upcoming third studio album ‘The Oracle, What Was, Is And What Could Have Been’ August 19th, the Canadian metalcore force of All Else Fails has posted the season 5 premiere of their series “Studio Spaces” online. The webisode follows the band during their headline show at the Boonstock Festival in Gibbons, AB on July 1st with behind the scenes clips and a live performance of their track “The Burden Of Life” while Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody hands the band beers.

Barrett Klesko, vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian metalcore band All Else Fails, recently sat down with me to discus the band’s newest release, The Oracle: What Was, Is, and Could have Been. The record is an all out assault on the senses; it’s brash, aggressive and will have listeners snapping their necks in no time at all. Here’s how the conversation went.
