Staff review by

Fallujah have undergone quite the evolution since their debut EP. Beginning life as an out-and-out deathcore band with nothing more than inventive riffs and a few blackened passages to set them apart, they have introduced more progressive and atmospheric elements with each release. The Flesh Prevails marks a true change in Fallujah, from better-than-average players in a populous scene to innovators of a rising and complex one.

Rating: 10 This album is incredible. One of the best experiences I've had all year. An absolute joy to listen to.

  This didn't grab me as much as I'd have liked. Focusing on atmospherics is absolutely fine in my book, but this is just way too imbalanced. Almost completely stripped off of the "meaningful" aggression and a sense of urgency that made the debut so enjoyable.

I don't know if it's my changing tastes but I'd put this on the same saddle as the latest Son of Aurelius. Too melody/atmosphere-oriented, without any definitive cutting edge. Kinda disappointing in all fairness.

  Best techdeath I've ever heard, love the atmosphere.

On a side note, Jessica Flores has good taste.

  Id be more sold if the production was better
too much brick-walling for me. Everything sounds like it's on the same volume level. Not as bad as some other albums, but I'll need to stream this before I dedicate my cash to this album

What does a clip about the war on drugs have to do with this?

When I linked it jumped to the part where a girl wearing a Fallujah t-shirt can be seen. Apparently it's not going there now. Anyway, that's the only reason I even know about this amazing band.

Rating: 7 Overrated but indeed a good album. There is no variety in vocals which is a bad thing. Second part of this album is better, more proggy IMO. I think I still prefer their debut over this new album.

Yes, it's alright, interesting stuff I guess, just do not like the vocals either.

Shame about the vocals.

Rating: 8 I would not call it a nine i think . It is an 8,5 for me with 2 listens allready .

Rating: 7 Mediocre as far as I can tell.
Necrodamus - 24.07.2014 at 07:52  
Rating: 9 There's a lot going on here; very proggy, atmospheric, and layered. Overall an awesome album. Can't wait to see these guys at Summer Slaughter.

I just don't get it. i hear nothing but good things about this band, but it just seems really boring to me. i wish i could hear what everyone is talking about

It is easy to be tired of this album because of vocals. It is really not as good as the rating says. I have better prog death bands on my list (self-promotion )

Rating: 9 I'll be honest, I didn't think I'll like this. VERY nice surprise
Gelati - 24.07.2014 at 22:07  
Rating: 9 An absolute bombshell. Fallujah have seriously matured (not that they were really immature) into a remarkabe group. I went from "yea I'm sure this'll be aight but probably overhyped" to "wow this is maybe AotY so far..." I could break it down into specifics but this album is just straight up cool.

Individual performance honor: Andrew Baird. My formal analysis on the drums for this album would read something like "FUCKING BONKERS"
