The Night has been uncaged and the bar has been set high! RISE Records must be proud

The Fallout was such an amazing album that it's become one of my favourites of all time, albums like City of Evil by Avenged Sevenfold, Scenes from a Memory Part 2 by Dream Theatre, and The Flood by Of Mice and Men ranking higher. This album is truly a wondrous story to be considered, and you can even play some of the tracks in a random assortment and still have a blast on it.

This album is dark, creepy, and moody but still keeping it as light-hearted as possible. They never really dive into one section of creepiness, moodiness, or darkness. They generally add a mixture of all three with some overruling others. Songs like Johnny's Revenge and Two's Too Many aren't meant to be moody they're for the darker and more sinister portions where Makeshift Chemistry and Journals reflect a more emotional and twisted sentiment.

Johnny's Revenge in particular is a really intriguing track alone with it being a follow up of Johnny Ringo from their Limitless MCD. As I mentioned in the excerpt that this band has set the bar high and I'm not lying. I pray to God that they don't turn into a Black Tide or Black Veil Brides where they have a specific style and it's really suiting and cool to completely changing their style altogether.

Evidence is one of the few tracks that I actually forgot about, sure Scenes from a Memory had those as well where you played through some of the songs and not notice but this one was just plain forgettable. The intro is certainly atmospheric with it starting off sombre then spiralling into a pit of fire on a train going 200 mph, then it kicks off the self-titled track The Fallout which is really astounding. Captivating and makes you feel and think. You can imagine yourself into one of the scenarios where they decide to sail to the edge of the world to watch stars fall. You can feel as though you're there with them.

Makeshift Chemistry is also an interesting song by itself. A mixture of love, hate, and betrayal all mixed well in a steaming pot of sheer incredible delight. The album cover is nice, not the most appealing I've seen so far but it's not bad either. With calculating a score by listening value, album cover, length, and my own personal enjoyment I give The Fallout a 18/20 a must by must stream kind of deal. No, seriously pick this album up you'll never regret it.
