Fallen Asunder - Self-Titled

Listening to Fallen Asunder's self-titled album brings the overwhelming significance of a lead vocalist immediately into focus. Whether or not one enjoys the vocals of a band's lead singer can be the sole determining factor in how much one loves or hates an act. Case in point: Rush. There are many that completely dig Rush's stellar musicianship; it's nearly impossible to argue against this Canadian trio's high level instrumental chops. However, not everybody loves Geddy Lee's singing style. In fact, there are those that truly hate it.

Fallen Asunder's lead singer, Ryan Batturs might also be the same sort of lightning rod figure. He has a pouty sort of singing style, which sometimes comes off like a emo singer mistakenly showing up for a metal band's rehearsal. Furthermore, some of the tracks on this 12-song album were recorded poorly to the point where the vocals mysteriously drop down in the mix annoyingly at inopportune moments.

Batturs sings these songs forcefully and passionately. He just doesn't always sing all that pleasantly. Sadly, his singing is an acquired taste that many may struggle to appreciate. All is not lost, though, because this hard rocking band plays quite well. Another characteristic is shares with Rush, come to think of it.
