I don't listen to Red Fang much anymore. Getting thrown out of one of their shows in Portland for "being too drunk" * played a key role in one of those extraterrestrially brutal and lingering hangovers I imagine old on-the-wagon-ites like to talk about. And I really do mean "lingering." It's to this day, roughly two years later, made putting on Murder The Mountains, one of my former go-to drinking soundtracks, a trigger for headaches and embarrassment. It's a real motherfucker.

I don't think this album is "Doom" at all, just Stoner Metal/Rock. But indeed, it is a very catchy and nice album.

Very average. They are boring, humourless version of themselves mixed with pseudo-Mastodon sound. First two albums are much better.

Awesome album. Most of the songs have a good, hard drive and wouldn't be quite as heavy or indeed effective without that solid rhythm section. Admittedly this is the first release I've listened to the band, so I assume the previous two albums are just as good. That said, 'Doen', 'No hope', 'Dawn rising' and '1516' are all absolute belters.

Well, record is good no doubt about it. But, then it was nothing new. I felt new album made up of rehashing older materials, good mixing and little bit innovation done here and there out made Whales And Leeches.

I have seen this band three times, and this new album is going to be the most fun live! everytime, before this album, the audience was -extremely- underwhelmed by the lack of agression (prehistoric dog being the exception). this album provides a great dose of fun though it retains the necessary stoner riffs.

The last 4 or 5 tracks really trail off in terms of quality but the first half of this album isn't too shabby. Unfortunately nowhere near as good as Murder the Mountains though.
