When the Mighty Fall
Everybody has a dark cloud in their life....fears, doubts, loneliness, anger, regrets. That's where this music originates, transforming that dark cloud into empowerment. When you're overwhelmed by those dark clouds, surrounded by enemies, and find yourself in the fight of your life, this is the sound of victory. All the members of Fight the Lion bring strength to their sound. From Jake's soaring vocals in 'Don't Runaway,' to Ron's guitar wizardry in 'Burn Out', from Shawn's arresting rhythms in 'Let This Die', to Jason's guard-dog-on-a-chain ferocity in 'Longshot', these guys are on a mission of rock and roll vengeance. They bring that mission to the stage with a frenetic energy. And when it seems that they've lost control, that you're about to witness unhinged chaos, they execute perfect musical transitions that punctuate the thunder with silence and empty space. On their debut full length album, 'When the Mighty Fall,' Fight the Lion adeptly transitions from the title track's epic ballad to the full-throttle rock of 'Fire it Up'. With songs like 'Let This Die' and 'A New Hope', they paint an intricate musical scene with complex harmonies and rhythms. If that's a little too heavy, 'Don't Runaway' and 'The Drive' score big with an Americana-rock sound and irresistible vocals. And if it's not heavy enough, 'Longshot' hits like a savage punch to the gut. Fight the Lion crosses multiple genres, but always delivers killer melodies, masterful guitar work, and flawless rhythms. This album was recorded in the spring of 2010 at Mountainside studios in the Pocono Mountains by Rich Rescigno and mastered by Ue Nastasi at Sterling Sound in New York City.
