Back in the early fall of 2017, we decided we wanted to cover, and record a country cover song. Many titles were thrown around including Waylon's "Black Rose," as well as Charlie Daniel's "The Devil Went Down To Georgia." In the end, we chose this song because it always had a dark, sinister feel to it.
We found out later that another band, that we coincidentally opened for, recently covered the same track. For a moment, we thought about scrapping the notion, but ultimately decided to carry through with the idea due to the fact that our cover versions sound nothing alike.
So without further ado, we present you our rendition of "A Country Boy Can Survive" by Hank Williams, Jr. Check the MUSIC section of the site! Recorded and mastered by Provo at Pirated Sounds Studio. We have made it available for free download and streaming on our Bandcamp!
The UK's ZERO TOLERANCE magazine gave Symbiosis a 4/6 review in their new Issue #83! After this review, we decided to catalogue all press we've received for the EP. We’ve added a new “PRESS” section to our official website! We didn’t really realize it until we started to delve into this process, but we have received coverage from publications, and radio all over the globe!
The countries include: England, USA, Australia, Russia, Spain, Brazil, Austria, Czech Republic, Portugal, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany!
Thank you to everyone who listened to a song, watched a video, read an interview or review, or otherwise supported us in any way! We are truly humbled by the response we’ve received for Symbiosis. Very special thanks to Imperative PR!

Unfortunately, we have to announce that, with the exception of June 8th in OKC, our Western Peregrination Tour is officially canceled due to an unexpected serious health matter concerning family. It goes without saying that family does, and should come first in this life. We hope you can all understand our situation, and hopefully we'll see you on the road soon.
We'd like to thank all the promoters / bands who took time to get back with us while this tour was in the booking stage, and apologies to all who planned on attending. If you're in the OKC area, we hope to see you June 8th!
CURSE THE FALL PAIRS WITH IMPERATIVE PR!
Via Imperative PR's anouncement:

OUR NEW EP, SYMBIOSIS, IS AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE TODAY!

"Live and Cursed 2018" is officially released NOW! This is an extremely RAW recording of us live that was recorded through a handheld Tascam utilizing the condenser mics, as well as a direct line-in from the soundboard. We present it to you with all the imperfections, mess ups, stage buzz...everything.
This EP contains 3 tracks; two of which are new, and one cover of a Hank Williams, Jr song that we made METAL! The point behind this release is to give everyone a preview of the direction we're heading in with new material, which is markedly heavier than our previous stuff.
The EP can be streamed in full via our YouTube channel, and it has also been made available for free download on our Bandcamp.
Thanks, and stay CURSED!

Some bands can channel their anger and aggression into a devastating onslaught of metallic power. Some bands can entwine the scars that life has given them in melancholy melody and speak to the shared experiences of listeners. Some bands can impress with a sweetly crafted solo or finely structured songs. And some, rare bands, can bind all those things together into one sonic structure of power, emotion, melody and skill. On November 21st Oklahoma City’s Curse The Fall will release their new EP, Symbiosis and show the world that they are one of those bands that have it all...Curse The Fall formed in 2013, a gathering together of musicians who had cut their teeth in numerous local bands and shared the drive and ambition to take things to the next level; the desire to create music that would speak to metal fans around the globe with its passion and honesty. The debut album, Aphelion, was released on Final Legion Records in the summer of 2016 and the word began to spread. Major magazines like Powerplay in the UK took notice and Curse The Fall were soon playing live with international acts like Soil, Dope, Drowning Pool and many more. Yet in truth Aphelion merely hinted at what the band could achieve.Now the hard work in the rehearsal room and on the stage has borne fruit; with the release of Symbiosis the world can really hear all that Curse The Fall have to offer. Mixed and mastered by Eric Greedy, who has previously worked with everyone from Fates Warning, Kingdom Come and Smashing Pumpkins to Body Count, Fu Manchu and Vince Neil, Symbiosis is the real deal in every respect. ‘Race’ is an explosion of rage and adrenalin, ‘Dirt Road’ is open wounds and candour, ‘Over Time’ a monumental, emotional journey...there is an incredible amount to explore and experience throughout this EP, into which the band have poured so much.Symbiosis is a gigantic step forward for Curse The Fall, but more than that it is a record that captures the blood, sweat, tears and soul of a genuine, talented band – and that is what metal music is all about.
