UndertheGunReview Presents: The Fall of Troy Retrospective and Hollow...

Posted by - 12:43 PM on 04/09/12
UndertheGunReview has two cool features up today: An in-depth look at the career of The Fall Of Troy -- including an interview with vocalist Thomas Erak, and a What The Film?! feature reflecting on how little sense the Kevin Bacon Hollow Man film made.

uhm, just a question, why are you taking a look at the career of the fall of troy? haha, just seems like it's pretty irrelevant.

I think that TFOT article could have been a lot stronger. I suppose the dude was going for an informal approach with his writing style, but it didn't even really offer any new information. Oh well.

That TFOT article was awful. It sounds like something I might have written up in an AP.net post while standing idle / half-drunk at a concert waiting for the next band to take the stage. Ick.

There were some cool bits of information (Manipulator is his favorite, eh..?) though.

Sick live band.

The guy writing those film reviews clearly loves Cracked. That's all the info I retained.

@SophGod the column clearly states that it takes a look at bands that have broken up in the past decade. I'd assume that's why they were taking a look at TFOT they've done The Bled and The Receiving End of Sirens as well.

Yeah, gotcha. Nice avatar and quote. Did you notice that AD easter egg in the article. Coincidence...

that was a pretty weak article - they were my favorite band for several years. didn't even mention their first album being recorded in less than a week at the age of 17 or how groundbreaking the original ghostship demos were to those who appreciated this sort of music. or how thomas won guitarist of the year in multiple magazines over multiple years. i didn't feel any nostalgia in dat shit - i still can't listen to in the unlikely event to this day though - glad they called it quits once thomas set his heart on his hollow sounding voice instead of his creative guitar style (i know people will say delay pedals blah blah) but the level of technicality mixed with catchiness was something i really respected.
