Witness The Fall has risen from the ashes of Tresore. I got a hold of their demo CD after seeing this band live in Eindhoven. It was their first gig in a new line-up and already WTF played a very convincing set. And as if that wasn't enough, this demo adds even more fuel to the fire. We're dealing with a talented band here. Emotionally charged new school comparable to Kill.Caress, or even Poison The Well and Morning Again.WTF has two major qualities. The first is their way of playing mid-tempo metallic riffs: controlled down to the last detail, beautifully supported by grooves that are left wide open, and never tempted to accidentally speed things up. The second quality is WTF's great sense of harmony, especially when it comes to making use of a second guitar player. Just listen to the opening track The Dawn Of A New Age and you know what I'm talking about. Though this genre has a relatively short history it already has its clichés that can also be heard on this demo. The singer's desperate screams and lyrics and many guitar riffs are more than typical for this style of hardcore. Still the only real flaw on this four-track beauty is the huge Dutch accent the singer has during several 'talking' parts in the songs. Nothing to cry over, but it does need a little work. I'm glad there are only four songs on this demo, because that's probably why the band and studio (called 195) had considerable time left to spend on the well balanced production. All I can say that this is a great first effort. Time will tell what this demo will bring WTF.
