Old Dead Tree. The - The Water Fields (2007)

The third and final album from this French band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars and vocals.

A keyboardist added keyboards.

The band gave up the ghost after this album after this album. 

Their second album, the 2005 album The Perpetual Motion, is regarded as a bit of a semi-classic in the French extreme metal scene.

The band won themselves a listing in ProgArchives based on that album and that got my attention. Hence these reviews. Reviews I should have done ten years ago.

The Water Fields is a rather gothic extreme metal with some elements of death metal, black metal and..... Porcupine Tree.

The use of clean and growling vocals are fairly good. The musicians also do a fairly good job.

The music is a bit run of the mill and pretty much the standard type of music so many other bands did at that time and still does. 

The quality is poor and only the few good details here saves this album from being named a turkey. I am not won over by this album or this band.

1.5 points
