The apocalyptic mood
expresses itself in the musical action of the band. The listener is
attacked by a death metal- and grindcore-bastard, enriched with some
classic thrash metal influences. The four-men-combo from Cologne/Germoney
is explicitly influenced by bands like Terrorizer (well, what would you
expect if you read the name "World Downfall"?), Brutal Truth and Slayer.
The lyrics deal with real and up-to-date-problems like the injustice of
man towards his own species and his environment. The band dissociates
itself explicitly from the currently growing nazi-asshole-movement which
regrettably infected even the so called "scene".
So what else can be said? After the release of two Promo-CDs "WORLD
DOWNFALL" release their full-length debut. Because of some bad
experiences with relying on other people, they decided to release it
themselves and entered the studio in August 2003 to record their first
DIY-album "Last Step Before The Fall". On November 25th 2006 World
Downfall released their second full length album "BEYOND SALVATION"
("DEMO OF THE MONTH", German METAL HAMMER, March 2007). A 14 song
deathgrind bastard featuring Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy on guest
vokills on "Your Shadow Moves Faster Than Mine".
In 2008 and 2009 World Downfall were part of two vinyl releases. A 4-way
Split 10" alongside NESSERIA (F), FUCK THE FACTS (CAN) and THE CRINN
(USA) and a REPULSION-Tribute-Sampler. Also paying tribute on this one
are bands like GENERAL SURGERY (SWE), HAEMORRHAGE (ESP), IMPALED (USA),
COLDWORKER (SWE) and CEPHALIC CARNAGE (USA).
