NOVEMBER COMING FIRE | dungeness
Sometimes you hear of bands and don't have any kind of expectations. I just put
November Coming Fire's new album "Dungeness" in my stereo and i was just amazed
what i got to listen to. This band manages to bridge alot of gaps and melt together
their influences and creativity to something unique. At the moment I think many
bands are attracted to the sea theme, like Mastodon with "Leviathan". But for
November Coming Fire this attraction towards the sea just fits perfect. This
band transports some kind of mood that i connect with being at the sea in stormy
weather. Already the first tunes of the first song "Blue Reigns" raise emotions
of despair and melancholy in me and somehow this is again one of those many great
records i got ahold of in the last time.
November Coming Fire are extremely good at bringing something unique into being.
"Argonaut" is one of my favourite songs as it creates an intense atmosphere that
makes you feel the music. The tension that is raised in this song starting with
a rather dampened riff that is dominated by a simple drum pattern and then suddenly
bursting out when the singer seems almost losing his voice because it sounds
so hoarse. After these riffs they just play heavy rock riffs that finally end
the song. And almost every song on this record has so many turns without sounding
constructed that it felt really good just keep on listening to these songs again
and again. I mean if you have a short attention span and are only waiting for the
singalongs you should go looking for something else but those that are interested
in something unpredictable should get this record.
