The Eclectic Sounds of a City Painted Black & White

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
It isn't hard to see why some folks might confuse Poughkeepsie, NY's Bless the Fallen with Phoenix, AZ's blessthefall. They have very similar though not identical names, both are part of screamo, and both bands have had members named Michael Mike Frisby in Phoenix's blessthefall and Mikey Fraleigh in Poughkeepsie's Bless the Fallen.

A press release that Crash Music sent out with The Eclectic Sounds of a City Painted Black & White the Poughkeepsie combo's first full-length album describes Bless the Fallen as a band that is "swimming in the veins of influences as diverse as Pantera, Pink Floyd, and Iron Maiden", but truth be...

A press release that Crash Music sent out with The Eclectic Sounds of a City Painted Black & White the Poughkeepsie combo's first full-length album describes Bless the Fallen as a band that is "swimming in the veins of influences as diverse as Pantera, Pink Floyd, and Iron Maiden", but truth be told, there is nothing on The Eclectic Sounds of a City Painted Black & White that gives any indication of these Poughkeepsie residents having such a wide variety of influences. This 46-minute disc offers a screamo/metalcore blend that contains occasional hints of death metal and black metal, and two of screamo's main ingredients are present: swirling guitars, and an extreme vocals/clean vocals contrast. However, Fraleigh's screaming vocals are dominant, and there are times when this CD downplays the screamo component and becomes all-out metalcore.
