ABOUT

WHEELFALL's new album, "A Spectre is Haunting the World" is raw, real, acerbic and uncompromising. After a black and brutal "The Atrocity Reports" (2017), the band returns with a new concept album retracing the story of a quiet citizen on the verge of assassinating the director of the International Monetary Fund.

Led by Fabien W. Furter, WHEELFALL is a constantly evolving band, combining influences from Post-Metal, Avant-garde Metal, Noise Rock and industrial music among other genres. You’ll hear in the band’s music the rage of a NEUROSIS, the heaviness of GODFLESH within tortuous and dissonant atmospheres evoking TODAY IS THE DAY.

Much more than simple music albums, WHEELFALL offers with each new release a new concept, a story presenting a transgressive vision on the reality of this world, around which different arts revolve: visual, pictorial, literary - the novel accompanying the double opus Glasrew Point (2015), the visual elements of the fanzine illustrating the story of “A Spectre is Haunting the World” (2020).

Combined with its independent and DIY approach, WHEELFALL promoting its albums via its own labels, the band develops a unique music and universe, which certainly sets them apart from the rest of the scene.

SYNOPSIS

Imagine that you feel so tired that you want to put an end to everything. Although you are a quiet citizen, you've grown fed up, feeling a bitter of dereliction... The feeling that you are shackled forever, with no hope for better days. The sensation of progressing painfully without headlights in a tunnel with no emergency exits nor nightlights. Having decided to take action, you then ask yourself the question of the person or persons responsible for this spoliation. Who are the authorities and people who shut down hope and light to take full credit? Who benefits from this true social injustice if not the bosses and their institutions? Those who swear only by profit?!

This is the reasoning of the hero of the concept album 'A Spectre is Haunting the World', an ordinary man who, pushed to the limit, turns his suicidal impulses against global capitalism, overnight. Soon after he decided to rid society of this scourge, he elects as his first target its greatest representative: the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and for modus operandi a live execution, facing the whole world.

20 minutes, it's the duration indicated by the countdown of the bomb he has just placed, holding his knife firmly on him. Is he going to act, with no possibility to go back to his old life? 20 minutes is also an interval for the memories that come back... A time that each track of the album proposes to dilate and detail, in order to tell what can lead a man like any other to want to commit the irredeemable.

The story of an ordinary demon who refuses to die.
