*** 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.

    • Anyone check out their album released earlier this year? Simple Plan     -    Harder Than It Looks 1    .    Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over) 2    .    Ruin My Life (feat. Deryck Whibley) 3    .    The Antidote 4    .    Million Pictures of You 5    .    Anxiety 6    .    Congratulations 7    .    Iconic 8    .    Best Day of My Life 9    .    Slow Motion 10    .    Two If you liked them before you'll undoubtedly like this one as it's very much Simple Plan. I enjoy.  The clear stand-out for me is this teen anthem that 13 year old Georgia would crank in (one of) her bedroom(s) with tears in her eyes, but it also hits a spot on the other side of the equation. Pretty silly when it's such a teeny written anthem, but not every song that hits a spot needs to be orchestrated by Picasso, I guess. lol.   
    • Just bought it recently. Waiting for it to arrive to give it a good listen.
    • Bit of a creeper this album, but I dig. Just did a quick little read-up on these guys on wikipedia and seems like there's an interesting history. I knew them from way back when then they released two very solid but pretty unspectacular albums in 2005 and 2007, and then went silent and I kind of forgot about them. Seems like a bit happened in those years, including their lead vocalist passing in 2014 (R.I.P). Also, possibly of interest, Don Vedda played in this band from 2019-2020.  This new album has actually been released without a lead vocalist in the band, but a host of guest vocalists on every track. Amazingly, it flows very well. The style is more mellow, and I must say, preferable to me. As noted at the start, the songs are instantly nice, but really grow and they're some of my favourites of the year so far now.  Scary Kids Scaring Kids     -    Out of Light 1    .    Nightmare (feat. Spencer Charnas) 2    .    The Dark (feat. Noah Sebastian) 3    .    To the Unknown (feat. Vaines) 4    .    Until You Come Back (feat. Matt Macdonald) 5    .    Knock It All Down (feat. Lil Lotus) 6    .    New Morning (feat. Cove Reber) 7    .    Omens (feat. Spencer Chamberlain) 8    .    Black Hole (feat. Donovan Melero) 9    .    I Wanna Know (feat. Jesse Cash) 10    .    Escape from My Reality (feat. MOD SUN) 11    .    Endlessly Yours (feat. Tyler Posey, Phem) 12    .    For Atlas (feat. Michael Swank)            
    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this.
