There comes a time in every artists' life when the present becomes the past and the future begins to take shape. For The Fall of Troy, that moment is eternal.For the last four years, the ever-progressive band from the suburbs of Seattle have been leading the campaign to push beyond all boundaries and extend their musical prowess into another realm. At 17 years old, the band released (and sold) a thousand copies of The Fall of Troy, a 10-song album that rapidly made the rounds on the internet, garnering an immeasurable number of awestruck fans. By 19, the now seasoned musicians released a more accurate portrayal of their skill in the form of Doppelgnger, a pristine recording that overflows with vocal and instrumental hooks and went on to sell over 45,000 copies. Fall of Troy's new album, Manipulator, is their future. Having built upon the band's reputation for lightning fast guitar riffs, raw screams, catchy choruses, and a volatile rhythm section, Manipulator finds The Fall of Troy combining metal with progressive, rock with blues, and past with present to once again push themselves beyond. The heavy parts are heavier, the poppy parts are poppier, and the overall dynamics make the album impossible to classify. Join The Fall of Troy on their journey. Manipulator is here.

...Manipulator is now! Fall of Troy continue to defy common knowledge. These dude are 21 years old and they are blowing people minds with their music. Just think how good these guys will be in 2 or 3 years. They continue to push their music forward with Manipulator. They explore their past efforts and combine it with new styles of music. You can hear a little blues, a little pop, and still keeping the post-hardcore, post-punk edge. They mix it up perfectly and combine styles to make some amazing songs. Thomas also has a solo song on here. Its a nice jazzy sort of song. He shows his potential vocally on this track and most other tracks, also. He can range from the lowest scream to the highest note. Sometimes he reaches a little too high but i won't fault him for that. You can hear some vintage Fall of Troy in here, you can hear a little Mastodon on here, you can here a dab of Blood Brothers on here, you can hear a little HORSE the band on here, and strangely enough you can here a bit of Weezer on here. The range is awesome and the blending is perfect. It's not a surprise to me that there is the Weezer influence. Thomas is a big fan of Weezer. I saw them at a show a while ago and while they were fixing some of the stuff on the stage he played "Butterfly" by Weezer. It was pretty good too. That shocked me. In a good way though. It's nice to know musicians are diverse listeners. My favorites (right now) on Manipulator are "Quarter Past", "Shhh!!! If You're Quiet, I'll Show You A Dinosaur", and "A Man. A Plan. A Canal. Panama.". They are all good songs though, I promise you that!
5 friggin' stars.
If you like/dislike let me know
I will Review mt Favorite song on the album
Dark Trail- This song to me is the fall of troy's strongest song. It features different styles of Thomas Erak's voice and guitar work with some sick drums to go along.
Quarter Past- This song has a very bluesy vibe to it and show Thomas Erak's more melodic vocals which are very killer
Ex-Creations- This song has a vibe more like an older The Fall Of Troy song. This is one of the heaviest song on the album and one of the best.
A Man. A Plan. A Canal. Panama- The 8 minute epic that ends the album i mean its 8 minute need i say more.
