The electrifying band, Electric Earth, will rock you to your feet with their fabulous Hard Rock single, “Free Fall (Beau Hill Remix).” This song has all the right elements of rock music: strong vocals, great instrumentation, and a driving rhythm. As you hear this song you can feel the searing guitar bursting its way with a fist full of energy. The lead vocals are strong and controlling and impresses with an edgy passion. There are also some great harmonies throughout this song. The driving rhythm runs full throttle with intense precision. If you like the bands Alice in Chains or Soundgarden, then you will definitely enjoy the powerful Hard Rock single, “Free Fall (Beau Hill Remix).”
