Album Review: Fallujah - Dreamless
Share This Article:
★★★★☆ The upcoming third album by Californian death metallers Fallujah will be one that has a great deal to live up to. The band’s debut – 2011’s The Harvest Wombs – established the five-piece as the next big thing in San Francisco’s metal scene, before 2014’s The Flesh Prevails broke the walls down, receiving acclaim from press and fans alike. And now, come April 29th, Dreamless will be given the arduous task of continuing a career that has been on a perpetual rise for five years. Luckily for Fallujah – and their intense cult following that has only grown in both size and passion since The Flesh Prevails – it is a record set to succeed. Album opener ‘Face of Death’ serves as the perfect microcosm for the experience that is set to follow: despite it being one of the shorter tracks on Dreamless, it certainly contains the elements that will return throughout the record. The track opens with a minute of musical ambience, using calming but haunting clean guitars to quietly build the listener’s anticipation.
