The Fallen Pillars By As We Suffer – Dropout Radio’s Song Of The Day
Today’s Song of The Day is The Fallen Pillars by As We Suffer. As We Suffer is a Hardcore/Punk/metal band from Ottawa and The Fallen Pillars is the title track off their upcoming debut album, set to release in April of 2021. It’s the most melodic song on the album, but doesn’t sacrifice heavy as it includes a djent vibe, along with aggressive riffs. As We Suffer play with pure passion, which echoes out clearly through their music.
The new album will end with this track to symbolize the end of an era of As We Suffer and the advancement into new territory. The band says that The Fallen Pillars takes the listener on a journey of the observer, witnessing the chaos all around them, and instead of joining, they decide to venture on a quest of inner truth, even as death brings its pestilence and war. A song of death and destruction but also of growth and rebirth.”
The album is an amalgamation of several heavy subgenres rolled into one. Hovering between metal-infused punk, hardcore, groove metal, and even a little hard rock, listeners go on a journey through each track. The track listing for the album was picked with diversity in mind and each song stands out in contrast to the last.
The concept album’s theme revolves around the pillars of truth. Each song deals with destructive concepts and beliefs that we, as a society/people, should not prop up as truths. It is a journey of unhealthy and damaging thoughts/emotions that explore existentialism, politics, religious fanaticism, and truth through different styles of heavy music. Keep an eye out for the album in April, this is The Fallen Pillars by As We Suffer on Dropout Radio’s Song of The Day.
