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.

Brutal, melodic, atmospheric. Lacks staying power, however, and is somewhat forgettable even after a few listens.


It is the "forgettable" quality of this album that makes me like it so much. Every time I come back, something fresh presents itself; it is worth many more listens than for that which it gets credit, imo. I literally cannot remember anything from it and that mysterious, unknown aspect intrigues me greatly.

This would be one of my favorites from 2014 if it wasn't for the production. I can't listen to this anymore.

This one's alright but doesn't have much staying power for me. Get it just for the song Sapphire, shit it's good.

It's been years and I still can't get enough of it. I guess it's my all time favorite technical metal album
