Furge are a band from France that is mostly rooted in sludge metal while also having elements of d beat and death metal and with their newer music they start mixing it in with more of a black metal style and this is a review of their 2016 album "Purge" which was released as a joint effort between Lost Pilgrims Records and Throatruiner Records.
A very dark and melodic sound starts off the album along with some high pitched black metal screams a few seconds later while the guitar riffing also brings in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal and after awhile death metal growls are added onto the recording and all of t he musical instruments bring in a very powerful sound.
When the music speeds up a great amount of crust and d beat elements can be heard and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also hear the influence of 90's Swedish death metal in the bands musical style and the music sticks to mostly a slow or mid paced direction while also having its fast moments and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing.
Fange creates another recording that remains true to the sludge metal sound of previous releases while also mixing in more black metal influences this time around, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in French and cover dark and angry themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Fange and if you are a fan of blackened sludge metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Machefer" and "Girone Della Merda". 8 out of 10.
