DOWNFALL OF GAIA signed just recently to Metal Records. DOWNFALL OF GAIA eschews clichés and delivers a monolithic, yet melodic, wall of sound. The band formed in 2008 in Hannover, Germany and has released a demo cd, a split tape, a split LP, and a full length album. Their split with In The Hearts of Emperors can be found on BandCamp HERE.
DOWNFALL OF GAIA started out as a crust band, but quickly developed further and have become much more difficult to compare to any other bands. Over the years, their songs became longer, slower, heavier; their influences range from doom to black metal, from down-tempo, to sludge, and hardcore. Their songs have an epic and majestic vibe, with enough musical peaks and valleys to keep listeners rooted firmly to the earth throughout 9:00+ minutes of music.
Since day one, the four-piece has been an active live band, not only performing in Germany, but also throughout the world: Italy, the UK, France, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and the United States have been witness to their live performances. No matter if they are playing a tiny club or a big festival, DOWNFALL OF GAIA are well known for their intense live shows.
“Hailing from Germany, these folks really know how to push the limits of a song and drive it in all emotions and musical dynamics!”
“Downfall of Gaia traverse more harrowing emotion than many bands do in their entire discographies. Both intensely atmospheric and relentlessly hard-hitting, the band takes hardcore fundamentals and pushes them to emotional extremes, flickering between fragility and ferocity”.
DOWNFALL OF GAIA just finished recording their next batch of music. The concept album,Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes, will be released later on in 2012. Stay tuned for more information, this is a release you do not want to miss!
