Second Fallujah single

2019-02-15 by ThatDude | 27 Comments
American death metal act Fallujah just released the second single, ''Dopamine'', from their upcoming album Undying Light to be released on March 15th through Nuclear Blast Records.

This single once again shows a departure from the band's signature atmospheric sound which has been present since the Nomadic EP.

Listen to ''Dopamine'':

Enjoyed it better than the first song. Probably because the first song lowered my expectations quite a bit.

Nothing wrong with trying to be more melodic, but there isn't much going on in this song. It's pretty god damn boring.

What the fuck happened to these guys? Different vocalist and guitarist but the same principle songwriter, yet they're struggling to write more than one riff per song. They've devolved back to demos in the span of three years.

Absolutely. I'm stunned. How is this even close to the same band that released "Nomadic"? I genuinely hope these past two singles have been outliers because otherwise I have a hard time imagining this album is going to be well-received by anyone.

This is worse than The Harvest Wombs, let alone better than Nomadic.

Don't give me that BS.

Well boys that was fast, this comes out in 4 days. Are you all as worried as I am? Stay tuned! I'm expecting a leak any day now and going in with more hesitation than I'd have hoped for.

Uh oh. So it looks like a week ago reviews started popping up. At least, I found four online. Three are diplomatic in their criticism and almost excuse it as the growing pains of a new sound, but MetalWani has an uncharacteristically well-written review up that sounds about right and goes into more detail on these criticisms.

It's pretty much what we feared from the singles: While the diversity in vocals is a welcome change, the loss of Brian (and without replacement) on guitar has made this an empty-sounding record. It relies on walls of sound driven by repetitive, uninteresting riffs, and a newfound lack of melody, ambiance, and atmosphere. It is absolutely nothing like their prior work in any way and gone are the elements that made them sound special in the first place. No songs stick out or have the "wow" moments of the past, leading to a blur of samey songs that's perhaps better used as background music if you ignore the trees for the forest.

Yikes/10. I'll give it a shot but any remaining hope is dashed.

First Tesseract's Sonder, then Skyharbor's Sunshine Dust, now this. My metal heroes have been failing me as of late.
