FALLUJAH – UNDYING LIGHT CD

RELEASE DATE: 15.03.2019.
California progressive death metallers FALLUJAH are swinging upward and venturing outward on new album, »Undying Light«. With new vocalist in Antonio Palermo (also of UNDERLING fame) firmly in position and a no-filler, all-killer songwriting attack, »Undying Light« isn’t the follow-up to »Dreamless«, it’s a massive jump forward. Whereas »Dreamless« wandered intelligently and resonated lithely, new tracks such as ‘Glass House,’ ‘Ultraviolet,’ ‘Eyes Like The Sun,’ and closer ‘Departure’ find FALLUJAH stripped down, razor-sharp, and emotionally charged.

“The songs on »Undying Light« are raw, confident, and new,” says guitarist/primary songwriter Scott Carstairs. “I think the last couple of albums we spent a lot of time experimenting with different elements, such as clean guest vocals, synthesizers, or different kinds of instrumentals. This time around we knew from the get-go that we wanted this record to be raw and honest. We wanted to move the music further but still showcase the sound and emotions this band has always evoked. With the addition of Antonio, we have been able to take the sound to new levels of emotion, a sound we have been striving to achieve for years but couldn’t quite get to until now.”

Formed in 2007 when Carstairs was still in high school, FALLUJAH quickly commenced writing material that would comprise a 7-song 2009 demo, the »Leper Colony« EP, and a 3-song 2010 demo. Over the three-year period FALLUJAH honed their craft by playing shows large and small, as well as finding more suitable musicians to play the band’s increasingly more complex songs. In 2011, FALLUJAH released their debut full-length, »The Harvest Wombs«, on Unique Leader to rave reviews. The »Nomadic« EP followed in 2013 and second full-length, »The Flesh Prevails«, in 2014. With »The Flesh Prevails«, FALLUJAH shot up Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums Chart, settling at #2. FALLUJAH not only impressed their core fanbase on »The Flesh Prevails« but also the progressive rock/metal community – Prog Archives awarded it 4/5 stars and calling it “[a] step forward.” By this point, the Californians had proven themselves on the road, appearing on not just one but four different Slaughter-branded tours. FALLUJAH had also traversed Europe in its entirety. When the group’s third full-length, »Dreamless«, landed in spring of 2016, FALLUJAH were full-on progressive – ex-CYNIC axe-wiz Tymon Kruidenier soloed on the title track – yet continued to hit hard. Praised on all sides, »Dreamless« cemented FALLUJAH as extreme metal rising stars, having charted in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. For all its successes, »Dreamless« also paved the way for what lay beyond.
