Generally I’m not really a fan of screaming vocals, however, in moderation and mixed with ‘clean’ vocals I’m a little more flexible. Fathom Farewell is identified as a ‘melodic metalcore’ band in the e-mail that we received about their new EP “Consume The Earth” (released on 20th September). As always I gave it a listen to see what I thought – and really liked it! There is some screaming vocals, but as the band’s website says ‘the innovative music they create has a piece of appeal for everyone’! The track “Six Feet Beneath” was included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 4th October.


Fathom Farewell formed in Boston, USA in 2014 and released their debut EP “Drowning Limits” shortly afterwards. A second EP called “Decomposition” was released in 2017 and “Consume The Earth” is their third release. The latest six track EP is self-released, with promotion being done by the guys at Clawhammer PR.

Since forming, Fathom Farewell have supported Sevendust on tour and been part of the Vans Warped Tour on four occasions; as well as supporting other bands and playing other festivals.


There have been a few line-up changes over the years, but it has stabilised around Alex Cohen on vocals, Gage Killion on guitar, Steve Almon on bass and Casey Albiero on drums. Check out the band website at

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

This is purely a personal recommendation and some information about the artist and the album; not a traditional ‘review’. Most of the recommendations posted are for albums that have been sent to us digitally by the record label or promoter. Quite often I’ve also bought the album on CD or vinyl as well and sometimes I just feel the need to post a recommendation for an album that I’ve bought myself. Essentially these are albums that I like and which I’ve played some tracks from on the Shows on Rock Radio NI!
