FALAUN: Fools: CD

Fools, appropriately released on April 1, is the first foray for fledgling label Dead Invoices, run by Dave from Cornish thrashers Rash Decision. Falaun obviously piqued his interest via its abrasive hardcore barrage and Fools provides seventeen examples of that. Only one song clocks in over three minutes, highlighting the band’s get in and get it done approach. Dual female/male vocals add some variety to the intensity of Falaun’s output and I really felt as if I’d taken a bit of an aural battering after a few spins of this. A good start from band and label alike. –Rich Cocksedge (Dead Invoices, [email protected], deadinvoicesrecords.bigcartel.com)
