FALTER: Descent: 7”

Jun 13, 2014

Falter comes from a dark, dark place. The lead singer is a shrieking, growling ball of pain and misanthropy. Though inarticulated, there’s no mistaking their self-loathing, suicidal lyrics are anything but truly heartfelt. The singer just bleeds every bit of his lost soul into them. What makes Descent relevant goes beyond if they’re a part some scene or whether you can appreciate their vigorous and unrelenting blend of crust, sludge, and powerviolence. No, what makes this record stand out is it feels like it was made purely for release, as if everyone involved is scratching their way out of a black pit of overwhelming despair.
