Fall From Grace: Sifting Through the Wreckage 

Don't let the guy-liner fool you. Fall From Grace, a four-man powerhouse out of Seattle is all about kick-ass rock 'n' roll. Their debut album, Sifting Through the Wreckage, released by Bodog Music, is comprised mainly of pounding anthems, heavy ballads and catchy choruses, drawing on punk and heavy-metal roots to create a fresh new sound. According to the band's bio, "Each member of Fall From Grace is a walking testament to the old adage that 'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,'" a sentiment evident throughout the entire album. Despite some darker subject matter, every song has an upbeat and optimistic tone, complete with Rise Against-esque rhythms, heavy punk riffs and powerful, gritty, melodic vocals that would be at home leading a power metal group. This album starts with the booming, stadium-sized anthem "Hated Youth," but later explores a brighter sound with "Blue and Cold" and "Pet Sematary." Some tracks, like "Covered in Scars," feature flaming guitar licks and solos. Overall, Sifting Through the Wreckage seems to carry a defiantly aggressive sound with a optimistic and positive message.

Fall From Grace crashed into the spotlight after winning the Bodog Battle of the Bands on Fuse TV in 2007. After clawing their way over 7,000 other bands to win the $1-million recording contract, they set to work on this album with producer Terry Date of Soundgarden, Deftones and Pantera fame. With their original sound and decorated support team, it looks like fall From Grace is going to be doing anything but.
