Faith - Blessed? (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Faith - Blessed? (IMPORT) (CD)



Sweden's Faith play heavy, gloomy doom. However, parts of the music can be perceived as symphonic, other parts as progressive metal and one important ingredient is folk music that certainly adds to the diversity of their material.

With Blessed?, the band steps further towards a unique mixture of doom metal, progressive with influences of Swedish folk music. This is close to a masterpiece, mixing CANDLEMASS with HEDNINGARNA, but always with a heavy approach, and one foot in the 70's doom scene!!

Fall of the Idols - Solemn Verses (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Fall of the Idols - Solemn Verses (IMPORT) (CD)



From its early days Fall of the Idols has been a talented and unique voice in the doom community. Their work is rooted in traditional doom, but their sound is anything but. The band’s always had a subtle psychedelic aura that’s not overbearing but definitely contributes to the Fall of the Idols personality. Central to that sound are the rich, distinctive vocals of Jyrki Hakomaki. He has a fantastic, muscular clean delivery, but also escalates into the odd roar, as well as a barbiturate-laced droning delivery that’s layered with accompanying vocal tracks to supply an almost blunted, bleary-eyed gloominess.

The band certainly hasn't collected any rust over the last handful of years, and Solemn Verses sees Fall of the Idols continue the directions on The Séance; namely to descend deeper into darkened despondent depths, yet also lashing out with uptempo, very un-doomish aggressive passages. Solemn Verses is a dark work of meditative doom, yet on occasion seems to transcend the genre with an almost rock-like spirit. It’s also the most dynamic album to date, as the band’s morose, haunting doom is draped with consistent turns into a subdued, hypnotic, and occasionally fragile psychedelia (“Genius Loqi” and stretches of “Hymn”) or an uncharacteristic cathartic belligerence, such as the coda of “Descant Deific Psalms” and the almost Celtic Frost-like propulsive staccato riffing and snarling vocals on “The New Crusade.” The centerpiece of the record is “Cycle of the Fallen,” a mostly slow-burning lugubrious doomster that touches on ‘70s rock and features some glorious, impasisoned vocal transitions from Hakomaki.

Solemn Verses is an evolutionary step for Fall of the Idols, and although immediately impressive, my early impression is that this album will also be a true grower. It’s more deeply textured and employs a wider breadth of mood and melodies than their earlier work while retaining the band’s distinctive personality. Another fantastic album from a fantastic band that has yet to receive the attention it deserves.

Fall of the Idols - The Seance (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Fall of the Idols - The Seance (IMPORT) (CD)



"The Seance" is Finnish Doom in its bleakest, most despairing shape. Fall of the Idols second stab at your mental health will either drag you down with it or make your day brighter, all depending on who you are. Decidedly heavier and even more monotonous than "The Womb of the Earth" this one has nothing but spite to offer.

'A Wound In Eternity' owes as much to Hawkwind as it does to Sleep, and at times the sound reminds me of early Monster Magnet. This is a fuzzed-out, spacey freak-out. The drums pound along in a manner that would make Keith Moon and John Bonham both proud. The guitars are fuzzed-out and drenched in reverb and delay, providing an excellent ambience. The vocals easily hearken back to the 60’s/early 70’s. Lyrics about space and all things space-related abound throughout the whole disc. Everything in the mix has a place here and it all sets a great psychedelic tone without sounding dated or forced. Farflung is a band with one foot firmly in the past and the other set light years into the future. I can only hope that this is just the beginning of a long trip yet to come.

Mesmerizing beyond belief, heavy with crushing, distorted guitars never venturing far from similar chords played over and over while at the same time mixing color bending orchestral schemes (ala Pink Floyd) with synthesizers that play tricks with your intellect. With a fascinating ear for the different, the boys of Farflung take their sound to the very extreme, and somehow never worry about bringing you back. With sounds, voices and special effects that seem to come from the deepest, darkest places of space, tracks use delicious mind warping techniques to grab on to the listener. For those wanting a mind fuck of a trip, this is about as different and unique as one could hope for. Intense with the sounds of punk, futuristic melodies, fuzzy guitars and haunting, lingering voices, Farflung is deeply committed to providing an element of the unexpected. Turn out the lights, put on the headphones so to be able to hear each and every chord, note, effect, and passage that is 'A Wound in Eternity'.

The new album from Farflung has my mind swirling as much from the sounds as from the sheer number of influences represented here. There’s obviously the sludge of early metal like Sabbath, some Ted Nugent like grooves, the raw unbridled beats of early 80’s punk rock and a healthy dose of early psychedelic spacerock. It’s all swirled up into a moving mass that sounds like it would be perfect to have playing in the background while you watch some 1970’s sci-fi oddity like Zardoz. The mixture of early metal and punk rock is here in all fuzzed out, revved up glory but there is also plenty odd noises and layers of floating, sometimes textured music that gives it a trippy feel at times. Also the production values are high which helps immensely with this kind of music. This is undoubtedly music where you need to get a CD player outside at night, lay down and gaze up at the stars and take in all the sky and this music has to offer.
