Description

Brisbane deathcore outfit As Paradise Falls have ridden a rollercoaster of emotions since their debut EP Save Yourself arrived on the metal landscape in 2014.
Overcoming adversity, personal tragedy, and musical uncertainty, the band returned in 2017 with the triumphant album Digital Ritual that diversified their output, exploring a myriad of complexities of the metal/metalcore realm. This was explored even further with the 2020 release of the single Bleed For The Crown but now As Paradise Falls promise to reach the pinnacle of that journey with the newly released 5 track EP Madness/Medicine.
Once again recorded at Studio 28 in Thailand with producer Shane Edwards, Madness/Medicine is another sonic leap forward for the duo, with guitarist Danny Kenneally making the bold statement that the music emerged victorious due to a simple but often neglected component.
Raw aggression.
HEAVY sat down for a chat wihth Kinneally earlier today.
"It's an accumulation of everything I'm into," he said of the EP. "We were feeling like a lot of the heavy music coming out at the minute was missing a bit more aggression, and I was finding that aggression in grime music from the UK, with artists like Ocean Wisdom, Dizzie Rascal, stuff like that. It was a combination of that and some of the heavier elements that I wanted to mould together, so with each song we've done on this EP I've gone with a different feel or vibe. There's five tracks. If you listen to one you'll think I know what they're about, then you go onto the next one and think oh shit, this is different. Cool, similar, but I get it, but every time you move onto the next track you will feel a different vibe."
In the full interview Danny explains how the EP follows on from Bleed For The Crown, the rollercoaster of emotion from which the EP was born, each song individually and the meaning behind it, adding aggression to music and more.
