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.
