The Fall of Troy is an interesting band. They play what many refer to as “post hardcore” which bands like Since By Man did so well in the early 2000’s but The Fall of Troy had a different take on the style. The band was one of the first I can think of that would take aggressive music and mix it with odd and complex time changes and lay on top of it not only screamed vocals but clean, melodic ones as well. I saw them once when their second album was released and watched the younger kids in the audience go completely bonkers for them and was duly impressed enough to pick up their first two albums.
The band broke up in 2010 after they seemed to be taking off even more but like all good bands, break ups aren’t always permanent and this year the band has reunited and taken back to the streets to tour the united states. Not only that but they are playing their best album, Doppelganger, in its entirety!
