The band as it exists today was formed in July 2011 in Geneva by members having previously taken part in various bands of the local metal scene. The project is part of the meeting of David Moro (guitar – formerly of Forge) and Philippe Suarez (guitar – former member of Amok) in 2009. A number of musicians have contributed to the karma of the band their way sooner or later. Finally, Yannick Cochain (bass – Sedative member) joined the crew in February 2011, Bastien Piguet (drums – a member of Lost Sphere Project) in April 2011 and Quentin Bocquel (vocals – member of 1Kub & The Wicked Wicked) in July 2011. Bastien Piguet left the band to follow a professional drum school in London, he was replaced by Fabien Dunoyer in September 2012.
It is not easy to apply COLOSSUS FALL’s rich and expanded sound to any existing style, being both brutal and sophisticated at the same time, but rather it is clearly an influence of a number of quite different genres. However, COLOSSUS FALL might be a kind of mix between Mastodon, Keelhaul, Coalesce, Converge and Isis. The constant evolution of the group is felt through each piece composed in different ways. The themes of the songs are also very varied. The emotions of the moment direct our inspirations.
The band has recorded a five-track EP named “SEMPERVIRENS” (release date May the 6th 2012). For early 2013, the aim is to come out with several recordings (a split and some exclusive tracks on various compilations). Finally, 2013 will be the time for writing new songs for the album planned for the first half of 2014.
