Product Description

Product Description

Pop-meets-punk-meets-metal-meets-rock in the unlikeliest of places, this is the musical crossroads where you'll find Washington State-based trio The Fall of Troy, skittering off defiantly in one direction after another, refusing to stick to any one established road. If it sounds like it all adds up to chaos, that's because it often does - but only in the same beautiful way as our own everyday experience. And with Doppelganger, their Equal Vision debut, that kind of musical experimentation and alternate perspective has enabled Thomas Erak (vocals/guitar), Tim Ward (bass/vocals), and Andrew Forsman (drums) to stand out right from the start. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Talented Sept. 22 2005
Format:Audio CD
One of the best cds I've bought in a long time. It's got a few of the old tracks (I Just Got This Symphony Goin', Mouths Like Sidewinder Missles, Whacko Jacko Steals the Elephan Man's Bones), but they've all been redone and are alot cleaner and sharp. The vocals have been cleaned up as well, and he is using alot more range, it sounds great. If you liked them before this will amaze you, and if you're new to The Fall of Troy, get ready to be blown away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD from a Very Promising Band. July 2 2006
By Mr. Pimpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a very complex piece of work. It's definitely got footing in prog/experimental rock, but it also has flourishses in emo/hardcore (thankfully not too much), pop hooks, and some 80's hair metal. It's amazing how even though it's the same thing each time you listen to it, it has such an amazing energy that never really leaves, you'll keep noticing little nuances that are great. The band itself is amazing. Thomas Erak (Vox/Guitar) is sheer brilliance, definitely one of the most talented guitarists I have ever heard, especially considering that he is not only doing some serious guitar work, but singing at the same time. The bass is exceptional as well, with alot of nice chords that really bring out the percussion from the drummer, who is also very talented. It's a little disappointing, though, that these guys are being fairly overlooked by the public. I don't know what's up, but these guys definitely deserve some serious attention, definitely more than any of those hardcore/emo/metalcore bands such as underoath, who merely feign emotion, while these guys are true brilliant, blistering, beautiful emotion. A must have for any music fan who is looking for new talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop reading the reviews, and just buy it already! Jan. 12 2006
By robert rizzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Fall of Troy and my ears. A match made in heaven. After cruising around on purevolume.com and equalvision.com checking these guys out I knew this was a must have. I purchased this cd in September of 05 and still listen to it(or their self title cd) almost everyday. For some reason I am unable to get bored with any of their cds. Intricately layered guitar work, unbelievable impeccablely timed drumming, pulsating bass, and all over the place vox. Very mathematical. They make it seem so easy to make music this good. It's hard to compare this to anything, there are so many different genres involved. I guess if I had to pigeonhole this, I would call it experimental hardcore/heavy metal/metalcore. Sounds like a much crazier version of Refused. Vicious, brutal and at times peaceful. If I had to recommend a cd of FOT's to begin with for newbies try Doppleganger. It's not any better than their self title, just mastered better. NOW STOP READING AND GET TO BUYING!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jesus, volta freaks...Get this April 18 2006
By Profirio Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I cam across the Fall of Troy through myspace. I listened to their song PT 5, and was amazed at the talent these guys.

Before that, I was very into the Mars Volta. I still am, but as time went on, I got more and mroe into the Fall of Troy. I eventually bought the cd, and listened to it. Now, reguardless, I listen to all of Doppleganger, each day. I can't help it, they are so great. I didn't expect this band to actually entertain me, especially with their live work. They are an amazing band, and everybody else, who thinks otherwise, should just stick to their metalcore and rap. No reason for your lack o musical tastee to interfere with peple who have potential of lisntieng to one of the best bands to arise today

5.0 out of 5 stars The most technical music since van halen!! June 25 2006
By Hardcore Kid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Thomas Erak really showed his talent in this amazing record. Though some songs are re-recorded from their old self-titled album, the recordings are much better. I was blown away when I looked at the guitar tab for "Mouths like Sidewinder Missiles"-It is hard to imagine how a guitar player who has only been playing for 5 years can sing and play guitar like that at the same time. here is my review on the cd:

-I Just Got This Symphony Goin' 10/10 The guitar in the intro of this song is amazing.

- Act One, Scene One 10/10 One of the catchiest songs of the album that makes you want to shake your head when the singer goes into a screaming fit.

-F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X. 9/10 Great single but it gets somewhat old after listening to it for a month staright.

-You got a deathwish Johnny Truant? 10/10 Short but sweet.

-Mouths like sidewinder missiles 15/10 amazing, catchy song with awesome guitar riffs.

-The Hol[ ]y Tape 9/10 sweet intro, good song

-Laces Out, Dan! 9/10 good vocals, catchy

-We Better Learn To Hotwire A Uterus 8/10 great song off the old cd

-Whacko Jacko Steals The Elephant Man's Bones 11/10 SWEET SONG OF OLD CD!!

- Tom Waits 7/10 gets a slight listen, not as catchy as some of the other songs

-Macaulay McCulkin 9/10 decent song that you have to make sure to listen to before turning off the cd.

BUY THE CD....YOU WONT BE SORRY!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars God Given Talent Aug. 28 2005
By S. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is the second (certaintly not the last) by my favorite local band, The Fall of Troy. In the group of three contains probably one with the most talented guitarists I have ever seen live (the other being Omar of The Mars Volta). Oh yeah, he also sings and screams. Thomas Erak has amazing talent in that 20 year old body. I first experienced it listening to their S/T. In that cd it sounded like Thomas's fingers could not stay still. His guitar riffs overlaped 4 or 5 times, which seemed to mute Tim's bass and Andrew's drums.

Fast foward to now, and they finally seem to come together as a band. All the instruments seem synced, and I can really start to enjoy Tim and Andrew's playing abilities. Thomas still has some amazing solos, but for the most part they have seemed to mature into a solid band. Tune into We Better Learn To Hotwire A Uterus, Tom Waits, and Macaulay McCulkin to hear Thomas at his best.

The only reason why I gave this cd a 4/5 is because of the fact that I have heard 7 of the 11 songs on the album. Tracks 1, 3, 5, and 9 are all remastered songs from their s/t, and tracks 7, 9, and 11 were all on a limited release demo.

Check this band out if your a fan of Chidios, Minus the Bear, Every Time I Die, The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In, etc.
