OVERALL

7.0 /10

So the Fierce and the Dead is a band I have had the pleasure of seeing live and actually hanging out with too. They are on the fringe of my tastes. So I would be hard pressed to give them an outstanding review based on my own personal likes.

The band is a four piece band from London with two guitars, base and drums. They grew from what was going to be Matt Stevens’ second solo album.

This album is still great despite them not being in my sweet spot of prog. This hard driving instrumental band has a lot going for it. Its different, energetic and emotional. The guys have a great stage presence and are a must see band live. Personally they are just a ton of fun and genuinely nice people.

The album art is another wonderful piece from Mark Buckingham who actually did our artwork here at progrock.com
