Christian metalcore band blessthefall always leaves audiences stunned with their combination of hard-hitting metal riffs and pulse-pounding tempos. With a Christian message wrapped up in a hardcore fanís dream, the band brings a potent combination of spiritually focused lyrics and an intense setlist that always delivers. While the thunderous low-end tones and double bass drumming hit the audience in the chest, blessthefallís guitarists add a melodic bent with their unbelievable riffs. Beau Bokanís pristine vocals soar through the bandís cleaner passages, sharply contrasting Jared Warthís guttural growling on heavy sections. Dancing the razors edge between themes of transcendence and primal rage on songs like ìHollow Bodiesî, ìPromised Oneísî, and ìTo Hell & Backî, blessthefall give Christian and metalcore fans an opportunity to come together, even if itís just to mosh to some heavy songs.
United by their faith and love for metalcore music, Phoenix high schoolers Eric Lambert (guitar), Matt Traynor (drums), Jared Warth (bassist/scream vocals), and Craig Mabbitt (vocals) formed blessthefall in 2003. After graduation the band quickly gained recognition outside their local scene, thanks to tours with like-minded groups like Alesana and Norma Jean. Their 2007 debut album His Last Walk peaked at No. 32 on the Billboard Heatseakers Chart and helped the band earn a spot on the Vans Warped Tour. Despite their rising success, founding vocalist Mabbitt decided to leave the group midway through a 2007 European tour to spend more time with his daughter. The group teamed up with singer Beau Bokan (formerly of Take the Crown), who debuted on the bandís 2009 sophomore album Witness. More than a decade in, blessthefall continues to impress metalcore fans with their unrelenting live shows and heart-racing recordings, including 2015ís To Those Left Behind.
