Dive Into A Melodic Death Metal Storm w/ “Blackened Waves” From Canada’s FALAMH
Song Premiere via NoCleanSinging
“Aeons Effigy” Out March 25th
L-R – Dave Strba (Guitar, Backing Vocals) – Kyle Tayler (Guitars, Vocals) – Kye Bell (Bass)
Canada’s Falamh are an intriguing blend of black metal and death metal, heavily dosed with melody, catchy riffs, and unrelenting heavy vocals. Their newest EP “Aeons Effigy” is coming out this year and the second single is “Blackened Waves”.
The single takes the listener into the dark turbulence of the ocean, where the drums and bass batter the eardrums like a storm against a frantic ship. It’s an immersive ride showing the well-developed musicianship of each of the extensively experienced members. Kyle Tayler (guitars, vocals) explains the track:
“’Blackened Waves’ tells the story of a near-death experience of someone being lost in a storm at sea and drowning, only to ascend alive with a newfound purpose. It’s a bit more mid-tempo with some highs and lows to keep it dynamic.”
Guitarist/vocalist Kyle Tayler formulates the basis of the song, which are then worked on by David Strba (guitars, backing vocals) and Kye Bell (bass) in their final form. Usually, there is an idea of where the song will go when the initial structure is derived, but lyrics almost always follow the music. They usually incorporate personal experiences under the guise of various forms of mysticisms. Sometimes they also tell a kind of story or journey.
“Aeons Effigy” takes shape from many influences and is recommended for fans of Enslaved, Taake, and Kampfar.
“Blackened Waves” can be heard via its premiere on NoCleanSinging HERE.
“Aeons Effigy” is being released on March 25, 2022.

For more info:
Falamh, from North Bay, ON, Canada rose from the ashes of a previous band in 2019. Guitarist/vocalist Kyle Tayler had originally written material for that band, but after the dissolution, sought other creative outlets for them. Enlisting members from the previous band, Falamh was born and they got to work refining their melodic black/death metal.
Ultimately working collaboratively, Tayler guides the initial creation of song structures, riffs, drums patterns, and lyrics which are distilled by David Strba (guitars, backing vocals) and Kye Bell (bass). The three of them have considerable experience playing live and for them, the current focus is to present something more memorable with a stage presence that adds to the overall atmosphere of the music.
Falamh released their first EP “The Unbound Beyond: I” in 2020 and will follow it up with “Aeons Effigy” due out on March 25, 2022.
