Folk/black metal band FELLED unveil new absorbing track via No Clean Singing

The two songs that have been streaming from this release have already impressed critics and won over unsuspecting fans all over. For a debut album to exude such raw, pure, and palpable emotions is incredibly rare and with each song that’s being revealed, it’s only becoming a certainty that they’re on to something special. No Clean Singing further attested the quality of their music via a brilliantly written article that can be found AT THIS LINK. Excerpt – 

“It feels so impassioned and powerful in the moment that it almost becomes spiritual, as if a dance honoring the earth that birthed us is a necessary accompaniment to the experience.”

US band Felled have created breathtaking music melding black metal with folk elements and lending to it rare depth and warmth. The inclusion of instruments such as violin and viola is masterfully done and is used almost as the main instrument here. The soulful music emanating from them is truly heart-rending and enhances the expression of this kind of black metal without diminishing the intensity. There’s not a dull moment on this 40-min record, with there being brilliant interplay between the guitar and the violin and viola, the arrangements being taut and with no section overstaying its welcome. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to call this record a near perfect one in the subgenre, and one that stays with you long after it’s over, its lingering tunes beckoning you to give yet another spin. There’s unparalleled elegance, remarkable dynamism and above all, the genuine quality of a band that’s creating music from the heart without any affectation.
