FAAL was founded in 2005 in the south of the Netherlands. The band's music is influenced by doom-metal, with touches of black-metal and post-rock. Their first album "Abhorrence-Salvation" was released in 2008 at Ván Records. This album received many good reviews, which resulted in a sold out first printing.

In 2011 FAAL went back to the studio to record their second full-length called "The clouds are burning". In 2015 they recorded a split with Eye of Solitude (UK), which was received with great enthusiasm. In 2017 the band headed back to the studio where they are currently recording their third full-length album.

Beside their recordings, they've also built a good live reputation and shared stages with names such as Ataraxie, Isole, Forgotten Tomb, The Ocean, October Tide and Mourning Beloveth.

Abhorrence-Salvation - Cover
Als „Doom Metal mit Black Metal- und Postrock-Einflüssen“ bezeichnet das Label (und auch die Band selbst) den Stil des holländischen Sextetts FAAL und liegt damit nicht wirklich falsch.
The Clouds Are Burning - Cover
Mit ihrem Erstlingswerk “Abhorrence Salvation” haben FAAL im Jahr 2009 eine wirklich reife Leistung abgeliefert.
