Perfectly serviceable classic, rapid-paced melodic
metal that leaves you feeling the urge to hoist your
fist aloft and sing along with each of the choruses,
though the lyrics are not light-hearted, dealing, as
they do, with war, though with a little more substance
than what you might expect from most who attempt to
tackle the subject.
One of the more convincing moments on The Great Fall is "Back From Hell," a moody track
that moves from an all-out assault to melodic and
atmospheric for over five minutes, lending the album a
certain warmth and balance that some would not have
the sensitivity to consider. The Great Fall is a good record to have, one that suggests this quintet will be sticking around (and making strong records) until
Nebraska tumbles into the ocean.
