Album Review

Default's debut album, The Fallout, sounds like a souvenir of the mid-'90s. Much like the second-generation grunge bands of that era — Silverchair, Seven Mary Three, and Bush, to name a few — this Canadian quartet sports a thick, buzzy guitar sound (courtesy of producer Rick Parasher of Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains fame) and a frontman whose mannered singing is equal parts Eddie Vedder, Maynard Keenan, and Layne Staley. With any lingering whiffs of danger or subversiveness that may be associated with those mentors airbrushed out of the picture, The Fallout provides a non-threatening option for those who seek the stylistic affectations of grunge rock, but wish to avoid all of the substance or excitement of its first generation. Default plays competently and the music sounds fine, but they simply have little to offer in the way of originality, which can also be said of a band like Creed, who nevertheless has millions of fans.

Customer Reviews

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.


Formed: Vancouver, British Columbia, Cana

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
