Few albums have been as eagerly awaited as Drumcorps' second album. Coming out nine years after “Grist” (Ad Noiseam adn70, 2006), “Falling Forward” looks to the future while staying true to the project's heavy guitar music roots. Dense riffs, vocals, melody, guest musicians and a diverse array of modern electronics combine with concise songwriting to form a complete work of integrity. The result is powerful, cohesive, and tender: a class of its own which keeps all the elements which made “Grist” a success and develops them further, confirming Drumcorps' position as not only a perfectionist, but also an innovator.
This album was originally available from the Ad Noiseam store, and is now available here.

A perfect example of how avante-garde heavy music should be approached. This album constantly keeps you on your toes with surprising and powerful transitions, using absurdity in a musical way without sounding gimmicky or harming the overall song structures. Tristan Feilla
