This album is quite fast paced and has riffs with such hooks they could certainly catch a whale (excuse the pun) the tracks are catchy the vocals are rough yet melodic and discernible whilst everything going on sounds like an actual band smashing out rocking tunes with each other with energy and musicality that isn't dull and is consistently good throughout, nothing on this album feels like filler. An highlight for me is 'Dawn Rising' which features Mike Scheidt from a band called YOB, this track is reminiscent of the aforementioned, 7 minutes long and Doomy also reminiscent of Black Sabbath I must say. Overall this album has me latched on like a leech (excuse the 2nd pun).

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.

this is my first purchase of a red fang album and although not all the tracks are to my liking,these are a seriously metal head bunch to reckon with. Dawn Rising is an awesome powerhouse of a track!!!! My only criticism of this album is they could have made some of the tracks longer,because at just around the 40min mark this is pretty poor time scale for any album when paying full price for. Other than that,keep on rocking dudes

The third Red Fang album and like their previous two this album is crammed full of heavy rock from the blistering DOEN, the instant classic Blood Like Cream to the stoner workout of Dawn Rising. Classic.

Really liked 'Red Fang' and 'Murder the Mountains so had high hopes for 'Whales and Leeches'. Perhaps not as 'instant' as previous releases, but a damn fine record all the same.

Fang again show the rest of the world why they are the best Stoner Metal band around, lightyears ahead of the rest.
