Fall of the Leafe - _Fermina_
(Icarus Records, 2002)
by: Adrian Bromley (
There seems to be a common theme running throughout the music of Finnish act Fall of the Leafe: diversity. The band's third offering, their second for label Icarus Records in Argentina, finds the band carrying on with their folk/melodic death metal angle with their music, surprisingly infectious at times and always an interesting listen. Like another band from their homeland, Kalmah, FotL isn't afraid to mix things up and be proud of their heritage and integrate it into their metallic flow. Check out tracks "Stumbling Stone" or "Chameleon Loop". While I think some metal fans might find the music of this band a tad odd at times, for those with an ear for diversity and eccentric metal music, this band will no doubt have you wrapped up with what they do. But like their past releases, I find the vocals a tad annoying at times, somewhat whiny but easily forgettable once the music gets flowing. A good listen.
