Metal and hard rock aren't typically our things here at If It's Too Loud..., but we can still appreciate the genres, especially when a band is as kick ass as Stormstress. On their latest single, "Fall With You," the Boston trio is revitalizing an often (unfairly) mocked style: The metal power ballad. For those of us that remember the late 80's and Def Leppard's insane run at the top of Dial MTV that inspired Adam Curry to practically beg viewers to vote for anything else, the metal power ballad brings up warm, fuzzy feelings of our youth. Sure, most of these songs are of the cheesy variety, but Stormstress pull off the rare power ballad that still rocks. This is a direct descendent of Lita Ford and Ozzy Osbourne's immortal "Close My Eyes Forever," and who doesn't need more of that in their lives?
In a Facebook post, Stormstress talks about their new single:
“'Fall With You,' dares to dig deep into the dark depths of the heart and matters of vulnerability. The song tells a painful love story about the ache of desire and being forced to choose between giving in to the forbidden wishes of the heart or facing the torment of withholding your truth in order to follow the rules."
