|SR002 - BLOOD RED FOG (FI) "On Death's Wings" CD
OUT NOW! Order here: http://www.saturnalrecords.com/shop/ind ... cts_id=188"Blood Red Fog’s sound has always been steeped in the style of Finnish compatriots, such as SATURNIAN MIST and COSMIC CHURCH (which, by the way, both sported Blood Red Fog members at some part), but there has always been this eerie and depressive air to their music, which is directly attributable to the shrieking vocals of founder B.R.F....This album sees Blood Red Fog continuing their tradition of mid-tempo black metal, with five tracks clocking in at 36 minutes. Although the band’s sound is decidedly Finnish in style, Blood Red Fog owes a lot of their sound to being influenced by the likes of BURZUM, MÜTIILATION, and DRUDKH. Amidst the trem riffing and rather raw and gruff exterior, there is a fair amount of melody, albeit the stark kind. Much like the forerunners of depressive black metal, Blood Red Fog’s music weaves a rather dismal web of minor keys and tortured vocals with some good old-fashioned black metal. On Death’s Wings is a rather depressing affair, yet underneath is cobweb-strewn exterior lies a trance-inducing quality...When Blood Red Fog is on fire, the music is trance-inducing, like the entirety of 'Liberation,' the pacing, ten-minute centerpiece of On Death’s Wings. With a wellspring of mid-tempo, dismal tunes, Blood Red Fog’s third album is one of their best to date. Combining the depressive likeness of MÜTIILATION and BURZUM with the Finnish sensibilities SATURNIAN MIST and COSMIC CHURCH, On Death’s Wings is a worthy addition to any black metal collection"
