Bloody Hell, I've been experiencing a real musical tour of the world lately courtesy of Über Röck. Canada, Sweden, India and now Bulgaria, and do you know what? To each band's credit the styles have been different throughout. So what do we have from Fyeld who hail from Sofia, the heartland of Bulgaria?
In truth, not a bad effort at all, straight away you can pick out elements of Korn within 'Rolling Spawns', a hint of Helmet in 'Suffer My Justice' and there is also more than a nod to luminaries such as Down and Machine Head throughout. The music is tight, powerful and would kick up quite a circle pit in full flow. Overall though it's nu metal that has had the biggest influence on this band, check out 'This Time'. I do like this nu metal done old style, and any fans of the aforementioned bands will really enjoy this album.
Fyeld are made up of Boyan Genov (guitars/lead vocals), Veselin Chipilov (bass), Dobromir Valkov (drums), Timo Puukko (programming/guitars) and Mihail Nachev (guitars/backing vocals) and for history's sake they were chosen to support Slayer and Halford in Bulgaria in 2002 and Anthrax in 2003 (which should show you where the band's allegiances lie!!!).
Give 'Not Blonde Enough To Survive The Holocaust' a listen it's well worthwhile. Now ÜRHQ let's have Poland, France or Holland next please to see what they've got.
