Review


I am not a huge fan of Doom Metal, but every now and then I like a bit of down-tuned guitars playing riffs so low you feel them as much as hear them. That was my frame of mind when Fangtooth's self-titled debut came along (the cool cover art didn't hurt, either.)

Basically, Fangtooth reminds me of Briton Rites. The same pounding, distorted guitar and bass sound, as well as a penchant for speeding up the tempo within songs, can be heard from both bands. Musically, Fangtooth don't blaze any new trails, but stick to the ones well worn by Black Sabbath, Candlemass and, of course, Briton Rites. They do a fine job with songs well within the boundaries of Doom Metal. Where they lose me are the vocals of singer Sfack. While his off-key warbles give him a tortured sound that actually enhances the songs, in spots, the sour notes start to pile up and quickly become a distraction.

If you can look past the rough vocals, which really need work, you'll find some decent Doom Metal on Fangtooth.
