2011's Murder The Mountains is the second full-length album from Red Fang. It is somewhat of a grower and may take a few listens to fully get into, as while the music is all very strong and interesting, it doesn't jump out at you as immediately as tracks from their previous album like `Prehistoric Dog,' did, for example, but stick with it and you'll be rewarded for your patience.

While reading a list of other bands in relation to one band can often be annoying; Red Fang are often described as being suitable for fans of bands like Mastodon, Baroness, Clutch, Melvins, The Sword, Fu Manchu and Queens Of The Stone Age and this does a good job not only of describing which end of the musical spectrum they sit on, but also the fact that the band flit psychotically between styles. Red Fang are compared to all the aforementioned artists seriously and not just because of touring partnerships or basic genre comparisons.

For example, the opening track `Malverde,' is tom-based with complex instrumentation and sludgey vocals reminiscent of Baroness and Early Mastodon but the very next track `Wires,' is a bouncy, simplistic good time rock and roll number with clean and melodic vocals reminiscent of QOTSA, at least until the atmospheric proggy build up in the middle, at which point things change once more into a grand and spacey direction reminiscent of modern Mastodon.

In the space between two songs, or even half a song Red Fang completely shift direction and cover all sorts of ground along the Stoner/Sludge/Progressive-Sludge areas of the genre, while still maintaining an original identity. Their sound can be dark, dense and brooding but it can also be bright, happy and bouncy.

From time to time i buy a mix of random artists from the MP3 selection Amazon has to offer & this is without a doubt one of my best 'random purchases' from Amazon.

Aspects remind me of hard core grunge, mixed with hard rock & with hints of metal influences thrown in for good measure.

If you're a fan of the FooFighters or Queens of the stone age, you'll definately enjoy this!

I bought this album after seeing this great little underground band support Mastodon on their last UK tour and was blown away by their sound and performance.
It would be easy to pigeon hole the band as 'Stoner Rock' or 'Stoner Metal,' but that would diminish the many genre splicing sounds on this album. There are a ton of down-tuned, quirky but somehow familiar-sounding riffs, and there is quite a big vocal range - thanks to the fact that vocal duties are shared by both the bassist and the guitarist.
Whilst the album isn't really breaking boundaries and doing anything drastically different or new, Red Fang do a lot of things and what they do, they do very well. There is a bit of a 'Songs For The Deaf'-era Queens Of The Stone Age vibe on some of the riffs, and also a bit of Nirvana on the chord based high tempo punk riffs that occasionally appear and a hell of a lot of slow to mid tempo metal. There aren't many lead breaks but those that do appear are more like fills or riffs on top of other, bassier riffs as opposed to straight up solos. The onus is very much on the riffs on this album, but the vocal lines and melodies stand up in their own right and compliment the riffs and the atmosphere well. The vocals mix from a hardcore-style bellow to cleaner rock singing style, there isn't any incoherent screaming, which is a good thing in my opinion and a bit of a change.
There are many highlights including the doomy opener 'Malverde,' the ominously heavy and somehow catchy groove of 'Throw Up,' as well the anthemic and straight-forward 4/4 rock riffs of 'Wires' and as well as 'Hank Is Dead,' 'Dirt Wizard' and 'Number Thirteen.'
A great album from a great band which also sounds great on stage.
