The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Fen. This band hails from Vancover, Canada. Their music can be described as dark, progressive metal.
"Fen has laboured for a decade on three recordings. The latest, Congenital Fixation (’06) is a Freudian-esque phantasmagoria, an acid drop into the subconscious, vividly rendered. Before this, came Heron Leg (’03), a story of incest and matricide, which Discorder Magazine has called “one of those great CDs the listener can get into more and more deeply as buried details are unearthed.” Three years prior, the debut release, Surgical Transfusion of Molting Sensory Reflections (’00), identified Fen as “the only band of its kind on the coast” (The Nerve Magazine), likely due to the abundance of odd time signatures and through-composed song forms.
A fourth album, Trails out of Gloom, will be released this fall, as Fen expands itself into the acoustic medium."
