Revenge Of The Fallen are a Portuguese act, founded in 2016.
After two years of going back and forth, experimenting and jamming with different
musicians, the band consolidated it’s lineup in the end of 2017.
The following year the band would finally perform it’s first gig, at their hometown of
Cascais (Lisbon), as well as release their first EP “Pareidolia”, which refers to the
tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous
Hyped with the result and acceptance of the EP on the portuguese underground
movement, the band started to work on a bunch of new songs, more melodical and
yet faster and more groovier.
In October 2019 the band would release their second EP “UnBroken”, a cathartic
album for everyone in the band, that had held with lovelife problems in recent
years, some which led to divorces.
In fact, the pure conception of the record, as well as the track listing were designed
to replicate their experiences: “Flames”, “Tears”, “End Of The World” and “Moving
In 2020, with an extensive schedule of shows already booked, the band saw the
devastating Covid pandemic stall their music (and the world) to an indefinite status.
Regardless of the situation, ceasing activities or stopping the bullet train was never
on the table and the band would even change to a bigger rehearsal room, in order
to survive the pandemic and further develop their musical legacy, as soon as the
Covid restrictions applied to the Portuguese territory would allow.
In 2021, a one-off song called “The Ballad Of The Saints” would be released on all
the streaming services, where the band already had it’s catalog, but with a video on
YouTube as well.
Individually recorded at each of the bands members house, and mixed by the
drummer, Carlos Araújo, it would be the first experience of the band, challenged to
make something different, and yet, meaningfull.
A representation of pain, sorrow and hope.
In the same year, the band devoted their absolute attention to the writting and
recording of their debut album.
After a couple of months of writting the new material, it was time for taking it to the studio: Nox Messor Sound Studios in the Portuguese capital, property of Tiago Mesquita, was the selected spot.
So, without missing a heartbeat, all songs were promptly recorded during the 2021
In January 2022, “Fall From You” would be released as the first single of the album,
Shortly after, a video for “A Fine Day To Live” would be released, in a video shot at
the band’s rehearsal room, turning it into a white void with a multitude of layers
and psychadelic colours, produced by the band’s drummer Carlos Araújo.
The video gained some hype, and the band, in full throttle mode, expeditiously went
on to film the third video for the album, their first ever song in native language
Shot on a venue that has hosted concerts for the likes of Porcupine Tree, Katatonia,
Moonspell, R.A.M.P. or the Brazilian act Ratos de Porão, the video - entirely in b&w -
would tell a story on perception of light and darkness, produced by the band’s guitarist
Fábio Gil. With the fascinating choreography of Beatriz Pereira, the video would arrive
the 10.000 views on YouTube in an interval of a few days, making it the most watched
video of the band.
