Red Fang is labeled as stoner rock, hard rock, and/or metal, but the conclusion we have come to is that it’s just really awesome, loud, noisy music.
The quartet is made of Bryan Giles, Aaron Beam , David Sullivan and John Sherman, all of whom have spent a lot of time in the music biz all of them having played in at least one other band. The Portland based group can be described as classic rock influenced, stoner jam sessions. The band’s most recent album, Whales and Leeches just dropped on the 15th of October, this year.
The album is getting great reviews on iTunes, but Pitchfork.com gave it a measly 5 out of 10. The reviewer called the album “markedly fine and nothing else.” Others disagree, Underthegunreview.net gave the album 8 out of 10 stating “Whales and Leeches gives you enough to chew on that it even works for active headphone listening.”
We’ve come to the conclusion that you should come to your own conclusions! Check out the album here.
