Pale Light in a Dying World is the debut album from Fell Harvest, a band out of Wyoming that plays a spacious, epic style of heavy/doom that sounds capable of filling up some of the vastness of the American upper Midwest. Song titles like "The Lark at Morning" and "The Ghosts of Scapa Flow" may belie the band's new world origins, but the gruff, booming vocals and chunky guitars are not far removed from fellow U.S. bands like Argus. Fell Harvest have nailed their sound and the album flows quite well but the songwriting is a bit light on hooks and isn't as memorable as I was hoping after the monstrous opening riffs of "Titanicide" greeted my ears. It can be tricky to balance the atmosphere and pacing of doom with the up-tempo immediacy of traditional heavy metal, but Fell Harvest seems to be off to a solid, if unspectacular start. Fans of Argus, Grand Magus, Magister Templi and the like should be watching these guys.
