Formed in the summer of 2010 as ‘Mekanism’ in Tampere, Finland, Spinefarm Records’ electro-metalcore futurists EMBER FALLS are ready to take on the known universe.
Named after a fictitious town in an imaginary multiverse somewhere in distant future, Ember Falls is a six-piece modern rock/metal act whose music is built around fiery riffs infused with pop sensibilities. Their songs run the gamut of glorious choruses and rich arrangements, iced to glistening perfection with a plethora of beautifully applicable influences including – but not limited to – djent, electro, drum ‘n’ bass, hip hop, Scandinavian pop and of course – due to their origins – the ever-present undercurrent of sombre yet beautiful melancholy only the Finns seem to feel. The music’s emphasis is on clean vocals, but armed with two capable vocalists, Ember Falls have found the perfect equilibrium between punchy aggression and sweet melodies.
After a slight course correction (and name change) and recruiting their new vocalist Thomas Grove, on August 20th 2015 EMBER FALLS released their debut single and video “Shut Down With Me”. Met with enthusiastic popular reaction, the idée fixe of a song racked up over 25000 views on YouTube in a matter of just few days and extensive radio play on Finland’s nationwide radio stations followed. Now, after over 2 million plays on various platforms, a recording deal with metal label extraordinaire Spinefarm Records and the band’s first European tour, EMBER FALLS’ futuristic metal is seriously gaining traction.
Having rocked the stages of several integral Finnish summer festivals for years already and garnering rave reviews from Finland’s domestic music press Ember Falls has nothing more to prove domestically. Now, with their new, shiny, original electro-digital edge and an added layer of oomph, the band is set to drop the world on its knees with their monolithic debut album “Welcome To Ember Falls” on February 17th, 2017.
It’s the massive metal riffs interwoven with beautiful choruses that create the atmosphere that Ember Falls is all about: an icing of vulnerability on huge, in-your-face contemporary rock songs that in one moment can kick your teeth in with riffs and the next make you shake your booty with beats that wouldn’t be out of place on a drum ‘n’ bass album. Breaking down all creative barriers, Ember Falls are chunky yet virtuosic; catchy yet emotive; modern yet fundamentally carved in the time-honored bedrock of metal.
Ember Falls is unbridled in execution, untamed in spirit and unbelievably good.
