When Paradise Falls


One of the bonuses about doing Highwire Daze is discovering talented locals bands and being able to write about them in these (somewhat) hallowed pages. When Paradise Falls is a newer band to the Los Angeles scene, but they are already beginning to gain a good deal of momentum due to their persistence, and energetic live shows. Progression Killed The Historian is their debut effort – an impressive collection of songs that go well beyond what is expected from a metalcore/screamo band.

whenparadisefalls1lr112809After a brief Intro, The Real Caesar’s Palace kick the proceedings into supersonic gear – and the slamming tunes never let up. Robot Pirate Island demonstrates just how creative and versatile the band is. Tigers Don’t Like Cinnamon is When Paradise Falls at their most heavy duty – this one is guaranteed to start up a mosh pit in no time. Be sure to stick around till the end to hear their absolutely inspired cover of the Jonas Brothers’ song Burnin’ Up – I bet the Jonas dudes had no idea their song could be so freakin’ metal!!! If you are going to cover a song, then this is definitely the way to do it – as When Paradise Falls definitely make this track their very own. A perfect mixture of clean and screamed vocals, dueling metal guitars, and a driving beat – When Paradise Falls wildly succeed on all counts.

The talented When Paradise Falls lineup includes Bryan on vocals (who was the former screamo vocalist for Amherist), Andrew and Mike on guitars, and Bernabe on drums. They are currently seeking a bassist. Expect to hear A LOT more from this band in the future.

    I have to say, the best part of the band is their drummer. Their drummer not only plays well but also incorporates styles from different genres. I recall one show he started playing some funk in one verse but also played some Latin like breakdown which made me want to dance. He plays with the most energy in the band and with the greatest style. He is not only a good drummer he is a very nice guy. It’s really nice to see bands that interact with their fans. It’s very seldom to see people and bands like this now. Great band.

    These boys are amazing and I have listened to them. I wished I lived closer to them so I can go to their shows. But I really need to see them.

  8. mindayyy 9 years ago

    These boys are truly amazing as people. And honestly, I have listened to them. They are really good. I will be attending a show…. Not sure when but I will.

    First of all, these guys made a Jonas Brothers song sound fifty times better, which is awesome.

    When Paradise Falls is a nice break from most of the hardcore bands today.
    After seeing the video of their performance on FlashRock, I really wanted to come to one of their shows. Unfortunately, I live nowhere near Los Angeles or even California. Their high energy could make anyone get up and move.

    Their drummer, in my honest opinion, is equipped with the most talent. He could possibly the best drummer I’be ever known. Blending genres in the middle of a song. For some it wouldn’t work, but he makes it work, which is a rare feet for drummers.

    When Paradise Falls will be going places for sure.

    In everyday conversation one often receives more respect based on the uniqueness of his presentation of ideas previously stated by other individuals. This band has effectively done the same with their music and for that they deserve respect.

    Bernabe and his worship prayers on twitter always make me feel good about myself. its great to see someone in the hardcore scene that is one with God. i love how he always ends every conversation with a “God Bless” its great to see there are hardcore kids like him that are with God and love god.
