This event is all ages
Established in 2002 by friends Brian, Devin, Rusty, Mark, and Tim, Downfall set out to become one of the hardest working, hardest rocking original bands in the Raleigh, NC area. After Mark Rose stepped down, bassist Dave Minella joined the band in 2006 , and in late 2007, the second half of the West brothers phenomenon, Devin West, rejoined the band after a one-year absence. In February, 2012, downfall welcomed their newest band member, drummer Josh Foster.
The Downfall sound comes from a mixture of styles and influences each member brings with him. Their music has been characterized by listeners as "high energy rock, slightly alternative with a heavy metal twist." The band's collaborative songwriting efforts give each song a tightness and edginess and serve to showcase the members' influences and talents. The inspirations and influences of the group tell the story. Every member is heavily influenced by classic heavy metal and hard rock pioneers such as Metallica, Ozzy and Pantera, and by contemporary artists like Black Label Society. In addition, Downfall's songwriting and musical styles draw upon past and present rock, classical, jazz and blues influences. This collection of influences and styles makes for an unmistakable chemistry and sound associated with Downfall - the "sound" that Downfall fans love.
Downfall brings to the stage the same power and synergy they display in their songwriting. Their high-energy live shows have earned them fans throughout the south. Downfall has played with such national bands as Flickerstick and The End, and their music has been played on Raleigh's 96 Rock and WKNC 88.1. In addition, the band was selected as a national finalist in the 2004 Zippo Hot Tour and was featured on the show True Music on HDNet. Most recently, Downfall won the 2007 Regional Battle of the Bands contest presented by Vision Promotional Services.
