Kill the Fall 

Demo 2007 (MySpace.com/KillTheFall)

Ray Terry is becoming a high-quality brand name in Cleveland. Whatever project the former Allergic to Whores/ Nightbreed frontman has cooking on his front burner, it's usually outstanding. Kill the Fall is no different. The power trio's latest demo represents the most eclectic and adventurous project of Terry's career. Ripping through the post-hardcore and horror-punk of Terry's previous outfits, Kill the Fall also explores new terrain.

With some fresh blood -- drummer Dustin Hamilton and bassist Chris Wheeler -- the hellbent singer enters stoner-metal territory on the mid-tempo "Confidential." "Paper Thin," in contrast, is a total surprise: a fun garage punk shout-along with a Whores-style breakdown that's more sinister than the GOP's agenda. "Knee Deep in Deception" starts out sludgy and has an epic, Nightbreed-like buildup.

Here's to hoping that Kill the Fall doesn't meet an untimely demise like Terry's other bands.
