Born of the musical talents of guitarists Riley Smith and Jake Van Zoete in Flagstaff, Arizona, As Gods Fall already had the makings of a band that would redefine the idea of the metal scene. With many lineup changes and ill-fortune, As Gods Fall was slowed in its ascension to break into the Arizona Metal Scene. But with the addition of drummer Richard Urnberg, As Gods Fall will not be breaking into the scene, but exploding into the music industry with the ferocity and technical skill laid down on the drums. Time went on and soon As Gods Fall would audition a bassist who would meet the high standards already set, raise the bar, and rise above it with ease. Xavier Meekins' mastery of subsonic artistry brings a whole new depth to the band. As Gods Fall does not limit itself to a single subgenre of metal, no. As Gods Fall takes influence from all subgenres to create a sound that can only be described as unrestrained metal.
