Belfast based rockers, The Almighty Fallen, manage to not only fulfil, but exceed all the expectations created by their- very modest- choice of moniker. Acclaimed as one of the hottest unsigned bands in Northern Ireland- They have already played the Dublin National Arena whilst being televised to over 30 countries, and have played numerous other international showcases, particularly in their fledgling days. Soaring, surprisingly melodic guitar hooks and electro tinges accompany what is certainly powerful, radio-friendly rock at its finest: distinctive enough to hold its own, and seemingly familiar enough to appeal to many. T.A.F current line-up, now consists of Phil Dixon (vocals), Marc Cumming (drums), Andrew McCallister (guitar) and Joe Goudie (bass). To date the band have released four singles (Resurrection, Walk Away, Common People - (cover version for charity) and Bittersweet-(free download) Plus a 4 Track EP (Resurrection-limited release, free download) and finally their Resurrection (music video). They are currently recording their first album and are due to release a new single summer 2014. All in all, The Almighty Fallen are definitely worth listening to if you are even mildly interested in rock, classic or otherwise. Here is a band that manage to take all the typical elements of a rock song, and tinker with them until they manage to create a sound that is familiar, but somehow dynamic, and undeniably theirs (I assume that this has something to do with the fact that the band has two sound engineers amongst the members). Proving that they are indeed an act that live up to, and even exceed the hype surrounding them, these guys are undoubtedly ones to watch in the coming months.

The band launched their first single Resurrection in March 2011 quickly followed up by their second release Walk Away in May 2011. Then in August 2011 they joined forces with Radio DJ Robin Elliot to promote and raise funds for autistic children's charity Helping Hands with a rework of the Pulp classic Common People. October 2012 saw the release of The Almighty Fallen's first official video Resurrection directed by Jim Crone and featuring one of Irelands top models Jenny Curran.
