Faded - Subconscious Infiltration (2011) [Failed Recordings]
The production is nigh-perfectly done and suits the band extremely well. It's warm and heavy and perfectly displays a range of complimentary sounds and dynamics, enough that I have no doubt Faded can reliably perform this way live. It's too organic to have come as the result of studio experimentation.
This is a great release and I'm looking forward to further developments. Hoping to hear some crushing heaviness carry over their slow work and a greater portion of the fast destruction they do so well. Check out Failed Recordings and Inherent Records to get yourself a copy; this is tape 51/100. Stream at fadedhc.bandcamp.com.
