French post rockish screamo act FALL OF MESSIAH premiere new video for “Contreforts”

2 mins read

French post-hardcore quintet FALL OF MESSIAH are back with their much awaited fourth full length album, β€˜Senicarne’ (Holy Roar Records). The band’s invigorating blend of post-rock and first wave screamo is evidently still intact following the one-two punch of opening songs β€˜La rΓ©publique du vide’ and β€˜Contreforts’, as they pair delicate, pathos evoking, melody with cascading drums and rhythmic hypnoticism a lΓ‘ early Pianos Become The Teeth, Heaven In Her Arms and Envy. Today, the band premiered a new music video for their song “Contreforts” and you can watch it above!

The band’s self admitted vast melting pot of influences lean into emotive atmospherics whilst never once losing their sharper edges. Large sections of the nine songs on offer bubble and writhe instrumentally – showcasing a deft art of controlled chaos (β€˜Atlantique’ and β€˜The loneliest whale in the world’), which only amplify the frantically drastic urgency of cuts such as β€˜Sequoia’.

Fall Of Messiah’s vision of distilling the spiritual essence of early emotional post-harcore into beautifully expansive and emotionally ravaging mini-epics, after four years since their last recordings, is an unquestionable triumph.

Constantly surprising listeners and renewing their style, FOM switch from chaotic riffs to colossal emotion and despair, clearly demonstrated through their artistry and distinct musical skills carried within their beautifully arranged music.

For fans of Pg.Lost, Pianos Become The Teeth, Caspian and Kaospilot, ‘EMPTY COLORS’, an acronym of “End My Pain, These Yelling Colors Of Life, Of Resigned Sadness” is a fatalist image of the time passing on people’s life and the band’s vision of the endless struggle of being alone, by choice or not.

“Contreforts” lyrics:

Holding onto anger, poison was pouring into our mouth
Our world was in flame, and we expected no one to die ?
But today I understood
I fix mistakes one by one
and so we walk, together on the front line
Take me out of this city
Like soldiers at vanguard
Fly me out of this body
