Field Of Spears/Serpent & Sodom/Broken Limb Recordings/2011 CD Review


  Field  Of  Spears  are  a  band  from  Maine  that  plays  Lo-fi/Neo Folk/Neo Classical  with  some  metal  influences  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2011  album  "Serpent  &  Sodom"  which  was  released  by  Broken  Limb  Recordings.

  Drums  are  all  slow  to  mid  paced  beats  that  have  a  very  militant  feeling  to  them,  while  the  synths have  a  very  dark  and  atmospheric  sound  combing  neo   folk  and  neo  classical  together  to  create  a sound  of  their  own.

  Acoustic  guitars  use  full  chords   and  finger  picking  to  bring  a  folk  music  feeling  to  the  recording,  while  the  vocals  are  all  neo  folk  clean  singing  with  the  lyrics  covering  summers  ending,  occultism  and  the  power  of  sin,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Field  Of  Spears  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  neo-folk  and  neo-classical  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Red  Serpent  At  Sodom"  "The  Green  Serpent"  "The  Grey  Serpent"  and  "The  Black  Serpent". RECOMMENDED  BUY.
