Haste the Day: Brennan Chaulk (vocals, guitar); Michael Murphy (vocals, bass instrument); Jimmy Ryan (vocals); Jason Barnes (guitar); Devin Chaulk (drums).
Though each member of Haste The Day thanks Jesus Christ in WHEN EVERYTHING FALLS's accompanying liner notes, one would be hard pressed to discern a Christian message when listening to this disc, especially since many of the vocals here are closer to tortured, demonic screams. Musically, Haste The Day deals in an aggressive, math-rock-influenced brand of modern thrash; complex drum parts and dueling metal guitars are the order of the day here. "If I Could See" features proggy, start-stop rhythms and Anthrax-like hardcore fury. "Fallen" alternates Hell-spawned growls with half-sung, half-shouted vocals of the Faith No More/Red Hot Chilli Peppers variety. Most interesting, though, is "InstruMETAL," a cerebral, swirling ambient piece that recalls the Cocteau Twins. A powerful sophomore effort, WHEN EVERYTHING FALLS is a mightily metallic statement.
