There is almost enough in this epic 63 minute single track album to recommend, but taken as the overblown whole that it is, can be quite overwhelming and deadening. I will take this review as an opportunity to say that the acoustic section from the 6th to 22nd minute is probably my favorite part - overlong, definitely, but still hypnotic. When the real black metal kicks in, it's quite hard to distinguish standout moments - and the atmosphere remains consistent for 40 minutes straight to the end. There are small patches which are standout, 49:28 for instance is a great interlude. It's probably not the sort of album I'll listen to much, or one I can simply get into. But it's still alright for what it is, so check it out if you don't mind strange black metal with folk and ambient elements. The first 6 minutes are a field recording of rain by the way.

FAUNA The Hunt

Fauna is, to my knowledge, a very obscure band, dealing with themes of nature in a black metal interpretation, mixed with nature sounds and ambience. Their second release, The Hunt, is their best thus far, but coming off the cathartic release that is Rain, The Hunt is not too different in design or concept, except to delve into a dirge concerning humanities pursuit of food. It is structured as a single, 80 minute track in initial release, but in re-release, slightly shorter and in mulitple parts. The album plays out as a continous track, with an ambient intro, then black metal outbursts, then further ambient sections. Although the ambitious nature of the albums design may not appeal to all, I have no qualms with an album designed as such, as long as the concept shines through because of it. In this case, it certainly does - but in such an ambitious concept, you can see that there are some flaws/qualms that do arise. It could have shaved 10 minutes here or there and been a bit more concise. Overall however, if you like black metal which takes turns in being atmospheric, cathartic, frenetic and slow burning, then this may be the release for you.
