Fen - Epoch

Hailing from the bleak and desolate marshes of the Norfolk fens, Fen so brilliantly capture and transmit that feeling of isolation and emptiness in their music; a sound that instantaneously takes the listener out to those cold, harsh wetlands. Second album Epoch very much picks up where the magnificent The Malediction Fields left off, the eerie, atmospheric black metal crashing through in waves before gently falling away, only to come rolling back in with yet more ferocity. Designed very much to be listened to as a whole, the flow of Epoch is a master class in structure and form; bludgeoning slabs of maniacal guitars and blast beats slide into a deep meditative hush, only to erupt again when least expected.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
