The calling of the wildness will never change in their blood, they all come from Inner Mongolia. Like the faithful cavalry sweep down from grassland, their music can bring you to the vast plain under the unlimited sky of their hometown.
It's really hard to spread some Chinese traditional folk culture to the youth nowadays, the impact from the west limited their creativity. The Ego-Fall is quite a good example of how to balance the west and the east, the modern times and the tradition. You cannot judge their music only from the way of playing, everything are melted in one. Their unique performing integrate the horse head string, hoomi (a kind of Mongolia throat singing, different from tibetan tantra's), and electrosonic instrument.
The Ego-Fall, lead their music with the spirit of the wolf, overturn the boundary between the west and the east.

The foundational line up of China's first Metal Core Band EGO FALL (other name: AGAINST ME) came from the former inner Mongolian grunge band called SUBCONSCIOUS (潜意识 QianYiShi) which was found back in 2000 with Su BoRi also on the vocals. After a temporary departure of Guitarist Wang Yang on year later, a new vocalist Wang Bin came into the band along with Guitarist Mao ChenWei and led the music changed more towards metal style. Like many underground musicians in China band members came to Beijing searching for a better destiny in Autumn of the same year but it didn't work out as expected so they returned home soon after while Wang Bin and Chen Wei left the band because of musical differences and found another melodic death metal band called FUNERAL POETRY (殉葬诗 XunZangShi)back in Inner Mongolia. Wang Bin's replacement was found in Bo Yin (now vocalist at 杭盖 HangGai). In the beginning of 2002 Yu Chao joint in as Keyboard player.
The bands music of that time was focused on a combination between Chinese folk melodies in NuMetal manner. Spring 2003 the band came back to Beijing once again to produce their Demo. But unfortunately Bo Yin had to quit because of his studies, thus Keyboarder Yu Chao was switched onto the vocals in May.
In the beginning of 2004 the band name was officially changed to AGAINST ME, and the music style tend more into power metal a this time. On their 3rd travel to Beijing they found a new man on bass in Chao LuoMeng, who came into the band on sujection of VOODOO KUNGFU's (or: ZERONE) Drummer. With this line up AGAINST ME start to do club gigs in Beijing's underground. Until the fall to 2005 former Vocalist Wang Bin and Guitarist Wang Yan came back and brought their melodic death influences into band. Now with two shouters on stage they also let different elements like industrial, NuMetal etc. flow into their music and mix it all up into nowadays Metal Core Style. Both Vocalists are screaming and growling like extreme metal as well as singing very emotional like emo core, the guitars are kicking with full load of bouncing rhythms.
Finally before the hot summer of 2005 came, AGAINST ME put out a 3piece demo incl. new songs in modern Metal Core style. Both Vocalists sound a little bit different on the record, the whole music is more emotional and less powerful as their live performances.
