Initially never planning to release his music compositions beyond the borders of just song writing, freelance drummer / instructor Sean Lang was urged by his circle of musician friends whom heard his material to take his creativity to the next level.
The outcome is Seven Year Storm, which showcases Lang’s unique sound, music arrangements written entirely by him plus guitarist Dean Lamb (Archspire) whom handles all of the mind-bending guitar leads and solos. Everything comes together into songs that are tight and heavy, melodic and groovy, technical yet memorable.
To get these works of art off the studio floor, Lang launched an Indiegogo campaign (video can be viewed here) to raise the necessary investment to complete the first collection of songs, which will be released in 2015 as two EPs: Aion I and Aion II.

“Combining atmospheric keyboards and djenty rhythms, and adding a slight touch of jazz rock and loads of melody, this EP should definitely appeal to fans of modern progressive music….the musicianship and songwriting is top notch, and the production is also extremely professional for a self-released EP. The production nicely allows for the sweeping layers of sound to shine through in a balanced and harmonic way. I definitely hope to hear more from Lang in the future. “Aion I” should appeal to fans of Animals As Leaders, Chimp Spanner, and Planet X.” – Metal Music Archives
“…on this five song EP, you have not only some fluid, inventive modern metal but also one with a very strong focus on melody, ambient space, subtle uses of keyboards to add an orchestral touch to the album along with a damn good attempt at an emotional connection to the listener. Which is a very pleasant and welcome surprise when you hear that this is a drummer-led recording….I’m also very glad to see more exciting, very modern instrumental metal that is focused on composition and dynamics rather than super-fast shredding which has been so prevalent over the past few decades.” – Prog Metal Zone
“Aion I is instrumental metal with a rather video-gamey quality to it, in that it’s driven by very enigmatic melodies, and the music thrives on syncopated grooves and polyrhythms, with gorgeous leads and atmosphere. It’s captivating, the songs are concise, yet have a lot of substance. Aion I is the band’s first output, an EP, and it’s quite good if you’re into instrumental metal of any sort.” – No Clean Singing

In a statement posted on their facebook page, All Else Fails have announced the return of drummer Ryan Biggs who was the band during 2010 along with being a touring member through 2011 and 2012.
The band was scheduled to perform on Feb 1st at Studio Music Foundation in Edmonton w/ Enemyus, Dieuponaday but due to scheduling conflict are now unable to take the stage, but will be performing in Drumheller, AB on March 1st at the Whiskey Lounge & Night Club w/ Maimed Wolf plus on April 26th at The Vat in Red Deer, AB with Ninjaspy .
AEF released their latest EP ‘Fucktropolis’ on Suicidal Bride Records this past summer, and recently released their latest music video ‘A Most Unwanted Reprieve’.
“This new video is different for us because it’s all live footage filmed during our set at Loud as Hell Metal Fest in Drumheller, AB last summer and obviously the fans played a big part in how it came out. We are also debuting our new VEVO channel with this one. We’d like to wish all our fans a Merry Fucking Christmas from All Else Fails!” comments All Else Fails vocalist / guitarist and video director Barrett Klesko.
‘Fucktropolis‘ is All Else Fails‘ fourth release since 2007 and is the follow up to their 2012 release ‘The Oracle, What Was, Is And Could Have Been’ that received world wide praise from industry publications around the world along with their music video ‘This Burden of Life‘ added to rotation on Canada’s largest music channel Much Music, expanding their Canadian fan base dramatically.
Making their mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre and drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, All That Remains, Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God. All Else Fails infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.
Their high energy live show sets them apart from their peers and has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Van’s Warped tour, Boonstock and opening support slots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.
