Fallujah began in 2007 as a politically charged 5 piece from the San Francisco Bay Area. The band has evolved into an expansive, complex and style defining force for Atmospheric Death Metal. The band started touring in 2009 and released their debut album The Harvest Wombs in 2011. After drastic stylistic progressions, countless tours, hundreds of shows, Fallujah is a modern force for musical, mental and creative liberation.
Explanation of the Name: Fallujah is a city in the Al Anbar province of Iraq that at the time of the bands formation sustained the highest concentration of destruction and casualties on both sides of the fighting. The members of Fallujah have lived the majority of their lives in the post 9/11 world growing up with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as observing the tension between East and West and religious turmoil. The city of Fallujah represents the pinnacle of tensions, hostility and destruction that has come to define the world we live in. To claim that the band has no knowledge of what went on there or is disrespectful is simply an uninformed opinion and irrelevant to the true message of the band.
