Fucktropolis Reviews So Far

We are pretty excited about the reception that the new EP is getting, here’s a small sample:


“They keeps things well-rounded and together the four musicians come together and merge into the perfect thrashing machine. While there were moments in the past when this band drew comparisons to As I Lay Dying, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, with this new EP they have made huge strides to forge their own identity. True, this digital promo does come packed with the usual “recommendations”. It recommends this EP to fans of Killswitch Engage, In Flames, Alexis On Fire, Cancer Bats and Five Finger Death Punch and there’s no doubt that yes, fans of those previously mentioned acts (as well as As I Lay Dying) should dig what All Else Fails is raging on about. But, that’s just a recommendation as the truth is All Else Fails comes custom-packed with enough originality that it’s time to just say that All Else Fails sounds like All Else Fails. No more and no less. In other words just get this EP!”

“Fucktropolis is simply great, a release which has limbs, senses, and passions leaping in tandem with its metallic adventure. If this is the direction and future ahead of All Else Fails, there will be exciting times as the band places themselves on the front line of world metal. 9/10″   

Ringmaster, The Ringmaster Review (Jul 30, 2013)

“The musical talents that All Else Fails has, proves they can play up there with the big boys and keep up with everyone on a professional and heavy level! You can feel the energy they put into their music. 9/10″   

“Canada can metal – and how! The aggressiveness is omnipresent. ALL ELSE FAILS get a work full of concentrated, but controlled rage that is well thought out from the first to the last second. 9/10″  

““Fucktropolis”. What an awesome name for an album. And what an awesome album it is. ALL ELSE FAILS, a four-piece from Alberta, Canada, recently put forth their heaviest release yet. With only 6 tracks, one of them being hidden, this album still manages to set itself apart in the highly competitive Metal industry, and showcase the supreme talent this quartet has to offer. The music is catchy, diverse and original, and the clean and dark vocals by Barrett Klesko and Seedy Mitchell add some variety to the brutal mix. If “Fucktropolis“ was a cake, it would have a lot of layers.”   

“Beautiful and hard to grasp their new record Fucktropolis is one of the most promising EP’s of 2013, they find something new and unique with their record and help to drive out the posers with a powerful sound and riffs that are simply to die for, this band has found a new level of metal madness.”

Don’t forget you can now get the new album on both iTunes and BandCamp.
