FEN: The Malediction Fields CD
Formed by Frank 'The Watcher' Allain (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Adam 'Grungyn' Allain (bass, additional vocals) of black metal bands Antigone and Skaldic Curse in 2006, Fen take their name from the bleakly atmospheric marshes of eastern England, a landscape with much emotional resonance for the two brothers.
The band have earned a formidable reputation as one of the UK's strongest black metal bands, showcasing a sound that balances black metal influences (Ulver, Enslaved, Emperor and Dissection) with prog, shoegaze, folk and post-rock influences from such diverse artists as Slowdive, The Chameleons, Fields of the Nephilim, Swans, Mono and Death In June. Dissonant, layered guitars, screamed vocals and synth engulf the listener before drawing back to allow the acoustic guitars to weave serene, even uplifting, textures. With an expansive yet introspective sound that explores both soil and soul, they share a certain resonance with acts such as Altar of Plagues, Negura Bunget, Agalloch, Drudkh, and Wolves in the Throne Room.The Malediction Fields is the band's debut album and was originally released back in 2009.
