THE FIERCE AND THE DEAD - Spooky action (2013, UK)

 

Thanos "ProgCaliph" Patsos

 

the fierce and the dead

 

Fierce and groovy, the second album from Brit post/math rockers is a pleasant getaway from melancholic, low tempo, heavily melodic progressive rock - yes, this can be a good thing at times...

 


"Spooky Action" is a title that suits this 40-minute direct injection of energy into the post/math rock system. Instrumental in its entirety, "Spooky Action" invests heavily on in-your-face heavy rock with plenty of syncopation, twin clean guitars with the appropriate reverbs and delays and math-metallic breaks that keep the tempo up. Joyfully I discovered that this album does not dive into the cliches of mellow, hypotonic post-rock as is the case with the majority of bands of this movement. Rather, here we have King Crimson-esque phrases that dance between light and dark on a post-rock background, influences from the far-east, metallic harmonies on a continuous alt-rock/grungy party. Moments where it turns funky with brass injections (Let's Start a Cult) show that this is post/math-rock out of the norm.

"Intermission 3" divides the album into two halves and I would say I probably prefer the first of the two, with 'I Like it I'm Into it' as a highlight. Possibly not a genre-defining album but TFATD are a very interesting differentiation in the scene that we should keep an eye on.

3.5/5 stars
