DeathfromAbove1979 Unknown band???

Hi all,


have any of you heard of a band called DeathFromAbove? Its a bassist and a drummer, the drummer sings and they make great heavy metal
(i think thats what it is)

anyway, i really like these guys but hardly anyone knows them, im shocked, theyv got 2 albums and play at many festivals.

anyway if you have heard of them can anyone tell me when they first appeared and what song you like best,

my favourite is BlackHistoryMonth

Nope, they're pretty big. I used to dig them, they really get under your skull after awhile.

They're not really metal/hardcore. They have more of an indie flavour to them (also they are an actual "indie" band being not signed to a major record label) but I do agree, they are a little heavier than most bands in this genre. I like them, though.

Their first album was You're a Woman, I'm a Machine and their second album (Romance Bloody Romace) was just a release of remixes and B sides of their first album, not really all new material, just mostly reworked material.

Yeah, that's more of an EP. They also have the EP for the single "Romantic Rights" from You're a Woman, I'm a Machine.

Yeah they're okay. I jus find that all the songs sound the same. I don't think they're gonna last long by playing the stuff they do now.

Death From Above are really cool. Sure, they may get repetitive after a few listens, but it's still good. The drummer's got a cool voice though.

Also, the riffs are pretty cool for the bass Romantic Rights has an awesome riff in my opinion.

I really don't like them very much at all.

You got to hand it to the guy for having a nice scarf though.
I want that scarf.
