*** NEW, YOUNG HEAVY ROCK GUITAR HEROES RELEASE BLISTERING DEBUT ALBUM ‘REVOLUTION’ VIA BROKEN ROAD RECORDS ***

Jupiter Falls are an immensely gifted young metal / hard rock quintet, who mix anthemic, classic rock foundations with a modern, heavy alt-rock edge, to create a fresh sound that’s sure to inspire fans of breathtaking guitar pyrotechnics, and hard-hitting, groove-laden hooks. Forming in Leeds in 2013, and fast amassing a fanbase far and wide, following touring with Jake E Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel in France and the UK in 2014, Jupiter Falls have now released their highly accomplished debut album ‘Revolution’ on via Broken Road Records.

 

Revolution’’s awesomely crisp sound comes courteous of legendary producer Roy Z, known for his work with major names such as Judas Priest, Yngwie Malmsteen and Bruce Dickinson. Jupiter Falls were introduced to Roy by their former manager, and as singer James Hart tells it, “We were just having a night in our studio with a few beers when we got a Skype out of the blue and it was Roy. We were totally taken off guard, especially when he said how much he loved our music”.

 

What Roy fell in love with was an incredible blend of superlative technical skills, and solid, powerful heavy rock songwriting, influenced by the likes of Guns ‘n’ Roses, Dio, Alter Bridge, Shinedown and Avenged Sevenfold. At the fore of Jupiter Falls’ dynamic sound are James’ distinctive yet versatile vocals, which move easily from gravelly growl to rich melody, and the amazing skills of lead guitarist Deano Silk, who consistently delivers memorable riffs and breathtaking solos throughout ‘Revolution’.

 

The pair started collaborating after James saw a YouTube clip of Deano playing. “The guy just blew me away!”, James remembers, and three weeks later they were in the studio together, writing what would become ‘Revolution’. Next, they assembled the stunningly tight rhythm section, consisting of rhythm guitarist Zachari Daniels, bassist Dan Clark, and drummer Lewie Lewington, who conspire to create Jupiter Falls’ booming bottom end, adding a pulverizing weight and depth to the sound.

 

The lead single, ‘Chasing The Dragon’, out as a download on August 3rd, is a strong indicator of the quality of the material in store. A swinging hard rocker, with several shades of Slash in its chugging freight-train riffs and fluid, fast-fingered solos, the song serves as a superb introduction to Jupiter Falls’ songwriting, which draws freely from the classic canon right through to modern icons over the course of ‘Revolution’s 12 tracks.

 

On the album opener ‘Awake’, which begins with a reading of the children’s bedtime prayer ‘Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep’ (doubtless familiar to metalheads everywhere from a certain other song!), James’ sings with an appropriately Hetfield-esque snarl, while for the brooding story of betrayal ‘When The Time Is Right’, he delivers an aching and emotive vocal, perfectly complemented by Deano’s seething guitarlines.

 

As confidently as they pen slow-burners such as ‘When The Time Is Right’, and searing rock ballad ‘World War Three’, Jupiter Falls can also unleash sheer brutal aggression. ‘Forgiven’ is one fine example of the album’s heavier moments, where staccato riffing and moody guitar melodies mesh with Lewie’s merciless machine gun-fire drumming in an incredible intro. Elsewhere, the grooving, Latino-flavoured ‘Lei E Quella’ serves up one of Deano’s most transcendent solos, before the epic, keyboard-led arrangements of closing track ‘Where Are You Now?’ round off the record in spectacular style, and reinforces the point that Jupiter Falls are one seriously exciting, exceptionally talented new act.

    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
