L'express, popular local newspaper, did publish online - in addition to the printed press - an article about our rock band.

:) that's cool of them to actually embed our Youtube video in the article:

Check out how the vocals were layered on the last chorus of our song:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/h7nk5pz8oluon3l/The%20Fall%20Last%20Chorus.mp3
and many of you requested the lyrics:

"The Fall" 

In these times of infatuation
In these times of caving in
On the light someone pulled the curtains

Fill the cup of desolation 
In these times of slut romance
Holding on to things that I am missing

I’m on this roll again 
Somehow I must see it end

And I fall
And I fall

Rushing in so relentless
Cursing on time itself
So many times I wished I pulled the trigger

Staggering in desperation
Can’t get up on my feet
Swallowing the same old bitter pill

I keep running in circles
Tied by my own affliction

And I fall
And I fall

It is something obsessing me
Cut loose the chains that are holding me
I’m on the run but I can’t break free
From the shackles of insanity

I’m on the roll again
This time I’ll see it end

As I fall
As I fall

All amps that were used in the recording are from the Axe FX 2, and effects are all VSTs.

My live setup is really different though, we tried to recreate more or less the same sounds for the recording of the song.

For live, I use a Laney GH50L with a Laney 2x12 cab usually mic'ed with a Shure sm57, the MXR Gt-Od, an MXR-Chorus, and the awesome Strymon Timeline(If I have some time, I'm going to post a demo of that delay machine). 

As for the guitar, I use my only and favorite electric the Ibanez RG2570 loaded with DiMarzio's Evo2(bridge) and Norton(neck)
