The Fallout Project - _Architecture Breeds Rust_
(Dare to Care, 2003)
by: Brian Meloon (7 out of 10)
Quebec City's The Fallout Project are a hardcore band in the style of early Neurosis, but perhaps a little more melodic. Their music is a roughly even mix of heavier and lighter sections, with the latter having some similarities to the alternative / math rock genre. The two styles complement each other quite well. Most of their music is slow-to-mid paced and more grating than heavy. The songs have some very strange structures, such as the three-and-a-half minute quiet section in the middle of the ten-minute "An Open Wound Bleeding Loose". This ultimately leads to my main complaint with this disc: it's not memorable at all. While the music is good to very good, it isn't organized well enough, and the songs don't stick with me for any length of time. I feel that better song structures could help make their music more effective. But as it is, this is a reasonably good offering, and should appeal to fans of older Neurosis, as well as bands like Eyes of Fire, Mindrot and Alchemist.
