ALL ELSE FAILS Nominated For Edmonton Music Award ‘Metal Recording of The Year’

ALL ELSE FAILS Nominated For Edmonton Music Award ‘Metal Recording of The Year’

ALL ELSE FAILS have been nominated for an Edmonton Music Award for ‘Metal Recording of The Year’ for their latest EP’s title track ‘The Forever Lie’. The EP was released in February and continues the Edmonton band’s aggressively dark brand of metal that breaks the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like Killswitch Engage, In Flames and Of Mice & Men, the band infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, classical, synth lines plus spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals. The band also toured India in January where they performed at the Unmaad Fest and the Alcheringa Fest (tour diary on Decibel Magazine here) plus filmed their latest music video ‘The Forever Lie’, which can be viewed at
Vocalist / guitarist Barrett Klesko comments on the nomination:

“We are honoured to be nominated for Metal Recording of the Year at the 2017 Edmonton Music Awards. We are in excellent company; the choices this year are all great bands and even better people.”ALL ELSE FAILS was nominated alongside fellow friends and musicians listed below.
