Biography

Glasgow, United Kingdom (2010 – present)

Falloch was formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 2010 by Andy Marshall and Scott McLean

Their sound draws inspiration from a variety of musical styles such as , , , as well as minimalist composers such as Arvo Pärt and Yann Tiersen.

Having a deep connection with nature the band is named after the Falls of Falloch waterfall in Crianlarich. Falloch (“Falach” in Scottish Gaelic) means “hidden/in hiding”.

They started recording their debut album ’Where Distant Spirits Remain’ in 2010. Upon completion they managed to secure legendary producer Ronan Chris Murphy (Ulver, King Crimson etc.) to master the album in early 2011, with the chance to sign to the revered Candlelight Records following shortly after. Their album was released on 26th September to a great critical reception.

In 2012 Falloch splitted with Andy Marshall - their vocalist and guitarist. Nonetheless, “Writing for the second album is going well and these changes hopefully shouldn’t delay things too much.”, as it was annouced by the band.

    for me post black is far away from the description of hipster. maybe they wanted to be more cool and said that post black was hipster, when they are in fact afraid of listening other metal bands,

    I wouldn't call it the worst album, it has its moments.

    The new album is not bad, but I am missing the great atmosphere from the first album.

    So, post-black isn't hip anymore? That's a shame, it was actually the best thing about their first album.

    Well, you've definitely got a point there DragonBottles. The thing is just, that I'm holding no ones hand, I just don't think people should only listen to the people disliking the album, they should give it a listen and judge for themselves. Maybe they agree with the haters, maybe they don't, and if they don't like what they hear, that's fine, as I said it's a matter of taste.

    Case in point: any band that has fans defending it and telling them to not mind the 'haters' are usually a terrible band. In any case, if you need someone to hold your hand on the internet in case *gasp* there's someone who disagrees with you or has different taste then you're better off talking to a lamp post instead.

    The new album is not that bad as some people claim, though it's a matter of taste as always. I like it, I find it quit interesting. Judge for yourself, don't get scared off by the haters.

    This Island, Our Funeral is about as bland as I expected it to be.

    I listened to their first album because of Andy Marshall. Big disappointment for me. And now that I got to listen their sophomore and Andy's not there, there's no change in my disappointment. Shame.
