Review: Narrows - Painted
And so, throughout the albums listening, there's often an atmosphere provided that makes Narrows' music the soundtrack of delirium, there's little sense of control in the juggernaut growling of Verellen and the intense lead guitar picking which battles against the more stable rhythms, as demonstrated in Absolute Betrayer and Face Paint.
With the exception of the more atmospheric and gentle Greenland, the overall tone of the album is one that is very much rooted in bleakness and nihility and very little else. Really, the experience of listening to this transatlantic group is one that is best suited in times where hatred is very much the prime sense of emotion. Painted is an album to listen to when one feels like shutting out the world and sinking away into the fiery gates of Hell and embrace the root of all despair. Have a nice day.
