"The atmospheric metal group Falloch are about to release their highly anticipated second album, This Island, Our Funeral, on Candlelight Records on September 22nd in Europe, and October 21st rest of the world.
Formed as a two piece in 2010, with their debut album, Where Distant Spirits Remain, they worked with Ronan Chris Murphy (King Crimson, Ulver) and they explored the atmospheres and feelings found within the landscapes of Scotland to create a vivid journey encapsulating the beauty of this small country. Which MSN metal described as 'A drop dead gorgeous haunting piece of work.'
Thematically aiming for a darker direction with This Island, Our Funeral, Falloch still manage to capture the atmosphere of the Scottish landscapes while creating a more direct and energetic sound. In writing this album Falloch were inspired to create a stronger coherent sound as a band and to have more charismatic lead vocals, performed by their new vocalist/guitarist Tony Dunn. On the six tracks of this album, the band takes the listener on a journey from tranquil serene sounds and landscapes through to thick walls of sound brought together by soaring vocals and emotive performances.
Recording the drums at Jaime Gomez Arellano's Orgone Studios (Ghost, Cathedral, Ulver) in September 2013, proved to be a great experience and the band decided that they would return to work with Gomez for the mixing and mastering in February 2014 after being awarded funding from Creative Scotland to help produce a second album."
