We Don't Rise, We Just Fall
Hailing from Leipzig, Germanys FIRMAMENT are a new heavy rock quintet begun in early 2021 by ex-members of TENSION, Prisma, and Wayward. Despite three of the members having done time in TENSION - who released their critically acclaimed debut album, Tension, via DYING VICTIMS last year - the goal for FIRMAMENT from the start was to write moving and thus catchy hard rock songs that get stuck in your head immediately as well as stylistically/spiritually returning to an era before traditional heavy metal even existed. So, while its tempting to superficially think FIRMAMENT are an extension of where TENSION left off, the truth is that FIRMAMENT are indeed their own "firmament." While FIRMAMENT are currently working on fresh material with new vocalist Marco Herrmann, We Dont Rise, We Just Fall stands as a citadel of archaic melancholy - towering in its aura, yet approachable across its moss-covered landscape. Maniacs for 70s Scorpions, Blue Oyster Cult, Wishbone Ash, and Thin Lizzy, lay down your sword and stand before FIRMAMENT!
