Album Review

Is it possible for a band to list the same influences as progressive metallists Dream Theater (Yes, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc.), as well as bands from the complete opposite end of the rock spectrum, like Nirvana? The Mukilteo, WA, trio Fall of Troy proves that it can indeed be done on their sophomore full-length, 2005's Doppelgänger. It's obvious from the get-go that the chaps — all of whom are either still teenaged or barely in their twenties — have obviously logged significant amounts of time "familiarizing" themselves with their instruments (in other words, long hours in their bedrooms shredding away), and melodic emocore elements can be detected as well. In fact, on tracks like "F.C.R.P.E.M.I.X.," you can't help but be reminded of Sunny Day Real Estate circa their heady Diary days. Elsewhere, the album-opening "I Just Got This Symphony Goin'" somehow manages to combine the two-handed guitar tapping of Eddie Van Halen with screams that would make Mike Patton proud. And you've got to love a band that comes up with whacked-out Zappa-esque song titles as like "We Better Learn to Hotwire a Uterus" and "Whacko Jacko Steals the Elephant Man's Bones." The Fall of Troy prove that, contrary to popular belief, not all young rock bands are longing to become the next blink-182.

Customer Reviews

Psychedelic!!!

I first heard about fall of troy when looking for bands like Enter Shikari and i stumbled on Fall of Troy. At first i was dubious but after a few listens was hooked. They have an insane guitarist who uses effects to give a sound like no other. He also has awesome vocals for this band as it matches the electronic but rock sound. No other bands like them and thats why i love them, they have created a sound no other band could have and for that i hold my hands up. If wanting to sample try these 3 tracks 1-FCPREMIX 2-Act One, Scene One 3-I Just Got This Symphony Going I guarentee you'll be hooked like me.

Irresistable.

I discovered The Fall Of Troy when I was looking on my friends iPod years ago and I have to say, when I listened to "Act One, Scene One" I thought there was nothing else quite like it. The way the singer screams and the incredible guitar was like nothing I'd ever heard before. When I finally got the chance to listen to this album I was blown away, the way they changed their musical style and voices to suit parts of the album amazed me. I must say The Fall Of Troy were the band that introduced me to most screamo and alternative rock music. Me and my friend used to be the only people to know them in our whole school and we felt proud about that. Then when Guitar Hero 3 came out... everyone found out... And that's good! Spread the word about The Fall of Troy people! There is no "skipping" tracks on this record but my personal favourites are: Act One, Scene One, F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X., You Got A Death Wish, Jonny Truant?, The Hol[]y Tape, Laces Out, Dan!, We Better Learn To Hotwire A Uterus, Whacko Jacko Steals The Elphant Man's Bones, Macaulay McCulkin

such a good album

the album was better than i ever thought it would be and it sooo different to anything else i like
