Michigan hard rockers Deepfall played the House of Blues in San Diego, California on December 17, 2019, supporting Hellyeah and Nonpoint on the A Celebration Of Life tour. The packed house was prepared for an intense, emotional evening, and Deepfall fit right in with their turn of the century vibe. Their sound is reminiscent of Creed, Saliva and Drowning Pool.
The band is comprised of Rich Hopkins (vocals/guitar), Nick Gray (drums), Tim King (keyboards), Anthony Battista (lead guitar 1), Max Carrillo (lead guitar 2), and Taylor Brandt (bass). Despite their opening slot and small stage area, they were highly active and entertaining. They featured songs off their latest release “Broken”, whose personal lyrics match the driving melodies.
Their only misstep was a cover of Journey’s “Separate Ways”, which was heavy but fell short in the emotional department. They violated the #1 rule of cover song choice, which is to never cover a world-class vocalist. This rules out Journey, Heart, Celine Dion, Dio and the like. They sounded much better when playing their originals.
