I've got no idea what happened to the other thread for local bands, so we're going to make this the new, improved and official local band thread. The idea of the thread is simple: post links to your favorite local bands, their music and give a little information on them. You can also use this thread to post updates on the bands that you've posted about. Falls Beneath [ MySpace ] Falls Beneath is a four-piece-turned-five-piece from the Geneva, Ohio-area in Northeast Ohio. Featuring Scott Vignal on bass, Dave Branham on rhythm guitar, Shawn Meehan on drums and J.J. Pawlowski on lead guitar and vocals, the band recently recruited former Caden vocalist/guitarist Andrew Oliver to take over the position as the band's frontman, allowing J.J. to concentrate on guitar. The band's sound has been reformed, and they'll sound more like Saosin now that Andrew's on lead vocals. However, screaming will still remain prominent in Falls Beneath's songs. On their MySpace, you can listen to the songs "Torn From You," "Aurora's Last Descent" and "The Ghost of Perfection," which are all available on the band's EP Hope All is Well. (These songs don't feature Andrew on vocals; the singing that you hear is either J.J. on some tracks and Dave on others, like "Aurora's Last Descent.") If you want a copy of the EP, just send them a message on MySpace and they'll send one out to you; however, they're $10. If you're fortunate enough to catch one of their shows around the Cleveland area, you'll know that they can rip it up like no tomorrow. J.J.'s guitar solos obliterate anything that most local bands can perform. They've got an almost-cult following around the Northeast Ohio area, giving them one of the largest fanbases in the area.
