DOWNFALL OF GAIA has been dropping massive epic, doomy hardcore/metal since 2013. Rarely do they have songs under five minutes and those long tracks don't drag on or have silly half-track interludes. If you are a fan of bands such as Buried Inside, Anodes, Light Bearer and Cult Of Luna you should be all over this. This band doesn't blow me away but if the aforementioned bands haven't satiated your appetite for this style of music then I would highly recommend these German fellas because they know what they're doing and they do it well. Their name is derived from the Greek Goddess of the Earth and most likely pertains to the absolute clusterfuck of a job we've done with our home.
