Fell Voices - Fell Voices

Artist: Fell Voices
Album: Fell Voices
Genre: Black Metal
Year: 2009
Origin: USA

Fell Voices is an atmospheric, "cascadian" black metal band that has only released one demo and this self-titled album. When I first heard the opening track I wasn't overly impressed, but then the second (and final) track came along and blew me away. Not that the first song is bad, it just took me a few listens to get it, while song 2 was love at first listen. The band is probably some flavor of anarchist, and they're from Santa Cruz (where I went to school), so that's something! I'm probably going to see them play in a few days with Ashdautas and maybe again later this month with Altar of Plagues.

Don't you dare miss them play - they're amazing, I hear. I'd kill to see them live. They're one of the best bands out there right now, and one of the best to come around in the past 5 years or so.

I don't know this band. I'll have to check it out. Ashdautas and Altar of Plagues, nice!

Can we call Santa Cruz Cascadian, though, really? California and especially anything below SF are Southwestern US more than anything!

Lol, I have a vested interest because I'm headed for Seattle in three months, so I'm going to be a snob about it.

Yeah, the Cascades certainly don't extend this far south. It's the style though!

I went to the Ashdautas, etc. concert last night, and Fell Voices totally stole the show. They were phenomenal, especially the drummer.
