Fossils are a band form Denmark that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of metal, punk, hardcore, progressive and noise rock and this is a review of their 2015 album "The Meeting" which was released by Indisciplinarian and also contains all of the tracks from their instrumental first album but done with vocals this time around.
A very heavy and aggressive sound starts off the album along with some vocals that combine the harsher side of noise rock and hardcore together and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the bands musical style along with the songs sticking to mostly a slow or mid paced direction.
Harsh noises can be heard in certain sections of the recording while the main focus remains more on a guitar orientated sound and as the album progresses you can hear a lot of progressive elements and an influence of post hardcore while the music is too heavy to be tagged with that label and the songs also bring in the energy of punk rock.
Fossils continues the noise rock and hardcore mixture of previous releases but this time adds in vocals to add another dimension to their musical style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover humorous and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Fossils and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Deadringer" "Ridge And The Rock" and "Kofhabit". 8 out of 10.
