All Else Fails is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, the band infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, Classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.

A high energy live show that sets them apart from their peers has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Vans Warped tour, Boonstock and opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.

The band’s last release received worldwide praise from industry publications around the world. With the release of the band’s most recent music video This Burden of Life in the fall of 2012, and its addition to rotation on Canada’s Much Music, All Else Fails’ fan base expanded dramatically.

About: FINAL TRIGGER’s story begins on ‘The Block’, nestled deep in Toronto’s urban jungle. Crime and poverty stricken, amongst a haven of thugs and deadbeats, four musically talented characters cross paths.

The spark of a lighter in a dark alley, smoking joints over the talk of escape and rebellion. A dream of a better life, where money/weed/bitches are a plenty. Free-styling with homies, rolling dirty, and dropping out of school to jam and pursue music. Most of all: a pact that would bind each member to a common cause, and entwine their fates forever. These are the fundamentals on which Final Trigger was born, and would lead it to become what it is today.

The Four Horsemen:

Lead Vocalist/Guitarist J-Roc provides the guitar-driven structures and shredding guitar solos with a tone reminiscent of Dimebag Darrell and Dave Mustaine. All while ripping vocal screams that would rival a Frankenstein of Lamb Of God, Snot and Hed PE.

Bass-man/Vocalist Fazio brings an equally heavy but funky vibe. He plays with a rock-solid presence and slap-bass style, with influences of Cliff Burton and Marcus Miller combined. Not to mention the ability to free-style vocally as if James Brown joined the Wu Tang Clan.

DJ/Vocalist Profit brings the smooth hip-hop vibe to the music, spitting savvy rhymes with old-school swagger, and tasteful keys and scratches.

Drummer extraordinaire JJ Tartaglia contributes the backbone beats and rhythms with a metal/funk style to get the groove just right. Blazing double kicks, sky-high cymbals, and a visual style unlike you’ve ever seen.

These players are the magical combination that makes Final Trigger an all-star line-up, and 2nd to none. The band believes hard in their music, and are proud to live their lyrics and image.
