A Highly Underrated Band

Although Default may sound like many other major rock acts today (Creed, Nickelback, etc) they are overlooked as a very talented band who deserves to be right up there with the big rockers. Their most popular song, Wasting My Time, has been my favorite song since I first heard it. If you like Creed, Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, and other similar artists, try Default. There's a good chance you'll fall in love.


Awesome Band!!!

Default is an awesome band. I agree with the other reviews that they are definitely underrated. Great band with a great sound.


the fallout is the best cd ever

This album is still one of my all time favorites. I can still put this CD in a rock out to it like its a brand new CD. every song on this cd is great. no matter how long its been this will be one of my top 5 cds ever... so what if they are like Nickleback... hell i love nickleback and have everyone of their CDs to. but for some reason i alway go back to this cd... i sure wish Dafault would make another CD like this one. i know its hard and well maybe this is the best and if it is that's great because it's awsome and i have a small piece of that awsomeness... :) thanks Default....even after 7 years this CD rocks.

About Default

Vancouver's Default fit the definition of straight-ahead hard rock in the early years of the 21st century: the guitar textures and melodic bent of grunge; the dark, brooding earnestness of post-grunge; and the deep, thick-sounding production (but not the rap influences) of new alternative metal. Default was formed as the Fallout in summer 1999 by guitarist Jeremy Hora and drummer Danny Craig, four-year veterans of the local Vancouver music scene; after auditioning several vocalists, they settled on former high school classmate Dallas Smith, whose power made up for his inexperience. The group recorded a demo with an unidentified bassist, and it fell into the hands of Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, who knew Hora and Craig from one of their previous bands. Kroeger offered to produce their independent recording sessions, and the group began gigging around Vancouver. In 2000, they entered a talent competition sponsored by a local radio station and won a spot on the Vancouver Seeds 2000 sampler CD, shortly before they changed their name to Default. Their song "Deny" subsequently became a smash hit on local rock radio, which led to a deal with TVT Records. Bassist Dave Benedict joined the band full-time not long after. Thus constituted, Default entered the studios with producer Rick Parashar in spring 2001 and recorded their official debut album, The Fallout; it was released later that year. Their follow-up, Elocation, came out in late 2003. ~ Steve Huey
