Staff review by
France has been something of a lightning rod for dirty, (usually) sludge-infused hardcore metal for a good number of years now, particularly via the formidable Throatruiner Records. But if there's one of these bands that always seems to stick out as more potent, creative, and all around prolific than the others, it's definitely Fange.

This is nasty as fuck and I love every second of it. It's also pretty cool that the band basically went from sludge to hardcore to industrial over with their past 3 albums (including this one). Cool sound evolution.

First time hearing these guys. Interesting mix and production, most of the high frequency content is "lushly bright", like a sweep of white noise that's almost harsh but still very much pleasant. The guitars are a nice balance of gritty, warm and sort of rounded. The vocals cut through the mix just enough but still sit in well with rest of the elements. I'm a big fan of the production here, it's heavy, dark and dirtied up just enough with the cymbals and noise dancing over the top of your head to balance it out and the vocals bringing a lot of this guttural rasp out. It compliments the songwriting well, about which I'm just going to say that I simply like it

Not sure what my rating would be as it is still a very fresh listen to me, but I'm feeling it somewhere in between a 7 and 8.
