Deepfall @ The Apollo Theatre
Belvidere, IL

It was suggested to me that I request a photography pass to check out this band called Deepfall. Normally, I am skeptical when others suggest artists for me to check out. Generally, It turns out to be a band I would never listen to. The bill was extremely solid with Hellyeah and Nonpoint at the top of it. Knowing this it couldn’t be bad. Happily I can say it wasn’t. In fact it kicked major ass. After the show, I was so impressed by their performance that I downloaded their album “Broken”. A 7 song rock roller coaster. Performance-wise, Deepfall, were tight and not what I was expecting. Between the guitarists punk jumps and the bassist foot slams it was hard to tell who was more into it. Vocally, they were strong and defiant. It was straight forward rock with a punch. Included in the set was a shout out for those whom and are serving in our military. It was a somber moment. Early on though they had a small mosh pit open up. The crowd was into it. The front row hand their hands stretched out hoping for hand slaps and high fives. I am looking forward to them coming back through when they open up for Alterbridge in February.
