Since the release of their third album, ‘Chapter 3: The Last Selection‘, independent outfit, PALEFACE SWISS have gained international recognition throughout the Deathcore and Beatdown Community. Known for their huge, aggressive riffs, brutally bombastic rhythm section, frontman, Zelli’s outstanding vocals and a pinch of humor. This is Switzerland’s finest heavy music. Across their catalog, the band have gained 40 million streams and 6.7 million YouTube views.
PALEFACE SWISS was formed in Zurich, Switzerland in 2017 by vocalist Marc Zellweger (Zelli) and drummer Colin Hammond (CJ) having met through a mutual friend in 2016. After bonding over a shared love of beatdowns and hardcore, Zelli and CJ shook hands at a concert in 2017 and promised they would create the craziest beatdown band ever together. They released their debut ‘Chapter 1: From The Gallows’ in 2018 and played their first show in October 2018 and quickly grew in popularity with the song “Deprivation Method”.
In early 2019, Paleface started writing ‘Chapter 2: Witch King’ and started working on the final installment of the dark story they’d created with Chapters 1 & 2. ‘Chapter 3: The Last Selection’ was released on October 30th 2020, spawning four music huge tracks “Curse Us”, “The Rats”, “Lights Out” and “Skalpell” which quickly ranked high in the beatdown/hardcore charts and saw the band become cover stars on Spotify’s Heavy Beatdown playlist.
In 2022 the band released their most ambitious and brutal album yet, ‘Fear & Dagger‘. The album was widely considered a huge step up for the band as plaudits began to roll in for frontman Zelli’s vocal ability, Metal Injection accurately summed it up in their review by saying, “It’s fun to get caught up in Paleface’s unrelenting instrumentals, but Zelli’s really the star of Paleface. This is largely because he treats his screams like rap bars.” The album shot the band into the upper echelons of the “deathcore renaissance” and spawned singles “The Orphan“, “Deathtouch“, “Dead Man’s Diary” feat. LANDMVRKS frontman Florent Salfati and most recently, fan favourite and stylistic curveball, “My Grave / Lay with Me“. The album focuses on more mature and critical topics related to the fears and struggles young people have to contend with in the 21st century, most importantly, the topic of mental health.
The album’s technical proficiency and no-holds barred brutality, coupled with Zelli’s unique delivery and highly emotional lyrics struck a chord with fans worldwide, racking up 15 million cross-platform streams, nearly 1 million YouTube views and saw the band’s monthly Spotify users increase by over 300%, currently at 320k. It was released to much acclaim with New Transcendence stating “Paleface have created one of the most emotionally relevant and intriguing beatdown releases to date” and Wall of Sound calling it “an unashamedly brutal and angry album” and calling the band
As Metal Injection so astutely put it in their review of ‘Fear & Dagger’ – “Stop pretending to be cultured, and get down with the beatdown.”.
