The band WHEELFALL (from Nancy, France) has just released the first track of their new concept album, to be released before the end of the year. The leader of the band, Fabien W. Furter speaks about it:
“1000 Ways to Kill a Man” is the first song and music video of our new concept album “A Spectre is Haunting the World”, which tells the story of an ordinary man who ends up wanting to kill the managing director of the International Monetary Fund. In “1000 Ways to Kill a Man”, this man is 20 minutes away from taking his irreversible action. 20 minutes, it’s the duration indicated by the countdown of the bomb he has just placed, holding his knife firmly on him. Is he going to act, with no possibility to go back to his old life? 20 minutes is also an interval for the memories that come back… A time that each track of the album proposes to dilate and detail, in order to tell what can lead a man like any other to want to commit the irredeemable.”
WHEELFALL’s new album, “A Spectre is Haunting the World” is raw, real, acerbic and uncompromising. After a black and brutal “The Atrocity Reports” (2017), the band returns with a new concept album retracing the story of a quiet citizen on the verge of assassinating the director of the International Monetary Fund.
Led by Fabien W. Furter, WHEELFALL is a constantly evolving band, combining influences from Post-Metal, Avant-garde Metal, Noise Rock and industrial music among other genres. You’ll hear in the band’s music the rage of a NEUROSIS, the heaviness of GODFLESH within tortuous and dissonant atmospheres evoking TODAY IS THE DAY.
Much more than simple music albums, WHEELFALL offers with each new release a new concept, a story presenting a transgressive vision on the reality of this world, around which different arts revolve: visual, pictorial, literary – for example the novel accompanying the double opus Glasrew Point (2015).
Combined with its independent and DIY approach, WHEELFALL promoting its albums via its own labels, the band develops a unique music and universe, which certainly sets them apart from the rest of the scene.
