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.
