Red Fang / Press

“If kick ass rock were ever distilled into beverage form it should be called Red Fang.”

“All of the metal planets have aligned on Red Fang. If you consider yourself a fan of heavy music, it would be impossible for you to not like this record.”

“Red Fang is an incredible debut from a fantastic metal band.”

“This is huge, epic, rock that walks into your home, drinks all your beer, fucks your girlfriend then burns the whole shitpile down before leaving. Nothing on this album is formulaic and Red Fang work hard to keep that idea alive.”

“Mounted atop the triumphant braids of guitars and the stampeding low end is some of the best metal riding today.”

“as soon as the music starts it’s like a wormhole opened up and teleported sheer rock awesomeness out of the ether in the form of… Red Fang.”

“The Oregon quartet combines the brutal onslaught of Mastodon, the cocksure songwriting chops of Lions and an old-school metal grounding that will make you remember why Metallica was so loved a long time ago.”

“Portland's Red Fang are about kicking ass, plain and simple. The group deals in heavy, low-end sludge, rollicking with all the vintage fuzz of Black Sabbath and burly thunder of fellow Pacific Northwesterners The Melvins.”

“Their debut full length is a monstrosity of epic proportions, packing in Melvins-style power with the pressure of Black Flag to come up with their own accord of outrageously hip noise.”

“Former members of Party Time, Bad Wizard, and the Last of the Juanitas have unleashed some of the most potent hard rock I’ve heard since Big Business. Prepare to have your face melted off.”

Hannah Levin - Seattle Stranger

“Red Fang write music in a different manner, with all the head banging qualities of Black Sabbath and punk attitude of mid era Black Flag.”

Portland Mercury

“If you listen to as much Slint as Slayer, then this is your new favorite band. Red Fang were perfect”

Seattle Weekly

“Brandishing heavy metal that’s deeply rooted in rock and punk, their grisly sound is a blitzkrieg of mammoth, hammering riffs and a roaring sonorousness – somewhere between stoner and ax murderer.”

“Red Fang smears roughhewn, ragged riffs that place the band much more in the camp of Big Business or even The Sword.”

The Onion

“I'd impart some kind of face-melting warning here, but a face melt by the Fang ain't something you wanna miss.”

The San Francisco Bay Guardian

“Red Fang follows that lineage with a good old-fashioned Northwest heavy rock attack (think classic grunge), infused with a bit of San Diego style (think Hot Snakes) and a vocalist that sounds not unlike Tad Doyle aping Ian MacKaye.”

Nathan Carson - Portland Mercury

“There's an old school sensibility to what they do, not only recalling Black Sabbath, but Mötörhead as well, not to mention a bit of classic punk rock for an added touch of bile. Red Fang doesn't experimental atmospheric realms or prog-rock odysseys, they just play loud, fast and heavy.”

“It's high time for these guys to snatch the stoner-rock crown from the increasingly pedestrian thugs in Queens of the Stone Age and rule in their rightful place alongside wiser contemporary metal comrades like Pelican and The Sword.”

Seattle Weekly

“Red Fang’s full length pulsates with gargantuan rock songs. These are vigilantly-crafted cuts, yet they ring with an incredible sense of simplicity because this band is just so fucking good at what they do.”

“These guys are raw, occasionally distorted, and loud as fuck; they've opened for the Sword, the Saviours, the Fucking Champs, and the Melvins, and they've got a distinct brand of metal — shreddin', but with a groove — that's formidable on disc but absolutely kills live.”

The San Francisco Bay Guardian

“The guys in Red Fang have played in a crap load of bands including, but not limited to: Bad Wizard, Last of the Juanitas, Shiny Beast, Facedowninshit, Lachrymator, Party Time, Trumans Water, and All Night.”

“This is some serious heavy riffage that sometimes sits firmly in the lap of stoner metal and other times flirts with mid '90s AmRep bands. Melodic and pummeling all at once.”
