5.0 out of 5 stars Happiness is a RED FANG riff, 23 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Whales and Leeches Deluxe CD [Ltd. Lenticular] (Audio CD)
The first eponymous album, a collection of EPs, has "Prehistoric Dog" but no other real standout tracks for me. But I think you could probably die happy having written Prehistoric Dog. Murder the Mountains has some fantastic moments, "Wires" is epic and I love the slow riffing of "Throw Up" but I think this is their best album to date, taken as a whole. No filler. At around the 2 minute mark of the first track "DOEN", a proper Red Fang riff appears and from then on I'm smiling. What I love about this band is that when they find a great riff they don't necessarily feel the need to do show you what else they can do, they let you enjoy it. There are some changes of pace too, it isn't just a barrage and the closing track "Every Little Twist" is perfect layered stoner rock. Red Fang are a band to see live (they absolutely smashed Download this year) and I'm looking forwards to hearing these new songs on the next tour. You should be, too.

I first saw them supporting Mastodon and was not that impressed, although it was at The Barrowlands (where sound swirls!). They felt like run of the mill stoner rock to me. However, Murder in the Mountains is an excellent album. I read reviews for this one this morning and bought it at lunch time. Looking forward to getting home to give it a blast. I may even do a review myself :)
