Fuming Mouth - The Grand Descent: Review

Over the summer, Fuming Mouth dropped their first full length album and it’s a record that deserves as much exposure as possible so we’ve taken a long hard look.

Titled The Grand Descent it’s laden with meaty, well produced, destructive death metal based music with a healthy dose of crust and even hardcore elements thrown into the boiling pot. The result is a well balanced, well constructed album that should serve as a warning shot to the metal community that Fuming Mouth are here to make a name for themselves.

This records got so much going for it, full of atmosphere, screaming guitars, shattering breakdowns and tortured vocals to name a few. If you’re a fan of Nails or Temple of Void then you’ll be in for a treat.

Across all twelve tracks there is absolutely no filler, Visions of Purgatory, The Spirits Chain and Fatalism are all killer. The energy and pace of the album gives the whole project a feeling of foreboding and mounting rage combined which is not something that’s easy to pull off.

Let's also not forget that awesome cover art by Mariusz Lewandowski tying the album together with the imagery it conjures sonically.

The Grand Descent is one hell of a ride and should not be ignored, check the record out for yourself and mark Fuming Mouth as one to watch because they have plans to make an impact as heavy as their music.

The Grand Descent is out now on Triple B Records
