4 stars One of the finest discoveries for me this year.

Once a metalhead is never an EX-metalhead, he-he-he. I judge from myself, but it's also obvious for most of my fellow melomaniacs. So when I came across a metal band, which was described as "experimental, proggy and even shoegaze-like", I wasn't hesitating that much. FEN's full-length debut is a mindblowing mix of Post-Black, Art Rock, Progressive Metal and many more genres, but the core of it all lies in old 90s Black. If I ever dare to play Black Metal, I would play it in FEN's way - experimental, melodic and fresh on the one hand and classicaly evil and utterly dark on the other. Don't dare to miss it, you'll definitely like it if you like AGALLOCH, ALCEST, A FOREST OF STARS, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM and ULVER. Highly recommended!

P.S.: "The Warren" seems to be one of the best Post-Black instrumentals I ever heard
