Everything Falls Together - Everything Falls Together

In short, EFT resemble FASS, ALOL and maybe KWD. What's that you say? Is this reviewer getting a bit acronym happy or what? Okay. The band we're talking about here is Everything Falls Together and I do find similarities in their hardcore/grind sound to bands such as From A Second Story Window, A Life Once Lost and Kill Whitney Dead. The chaotic dissonance, the screams of sheer panic and guttural growls that speak of bad dietary habits, the schizoid pummeling that won't stay predictable, this is the type of sound I'm talking about.

If I had to pick a favorite, I would take "Angel Lust And Sex On The Beach." This tune features many different tempo schematics to keep you from getting in too comfortable a groove, and then after a clean break the volume comes down a bit and the whole thing settles into an unsettling dirge, complete with interesting chord changes, and a scary chorus of voices taken from "2001: A Space Odyssey," complete with the familiar lament of the Hal 9000, "Dave, my mind is going."
All that being said, Everything Falls Together broke up last year before even releasing this, their self-titled debut E.P. which was recorded in 2005. ArcLight Communications of Toledo, Ohio picked up the ball and got the thing released in May of 2006 and it is still available through them as well as at Gomek.com. Kind of a shame 'cause this shit ain't half bad. The good news is that certain members of EFT have since teamed up with members of the band Winter Solstice to form a new project called Ghost Of A Fallen Age, gotten one of their new tunes onto a Hot Topic compilation and appear to be doing quite well for themselves.
