2nd Look – Fellwoods – Wulfram

This is a new feature that I think I’ll run when the time comes. This column will be serve as my own little “Epic Album of the Week” only not weekly like what Ian writes. The firstalbum that I want to write about is Portland, OR trio Fellwoods. The band was formerly known as The Moss and my review of the album is here.

Here’s an album that I listened to just now and thought that this is some bad ass stuff. The band is The Moss from Portland, OR. They’ve been together for a little over a year now and put out a 12 track “demo” titled Wulfram. The Moss seem to play a unique brand of psychedelic blues with a lot of Sabbath inspired doom, plenty of great sounding riffs and some 70′s progressive hard rock ala Hard Stuff, Fuzzy Duck or Atomic Rooster.

Those were statements I made in my review. That’s the basic. I discovered them when I received an email from singer Adam Burke. It was the typical “Hey we’re band X, check us out.”

I play in a band in Portland, OR called The Moss.  We’re influenced by heavy psych, hard rock and proto-metal from the late 60s/early 70s.  We’re been together for about a year and a half.  We recorded a 12 song demo last winter and are shopping it around a bit while we get ready (more…)


The Moss is now Fellwoods

Hi all,

The Moss from Portland, Oregon is changing its name.  We have run into too much crossover with other bands using the Moss name, most notably the sludge doom  Moss from UK.  It’s been an arduous process, but we have chosen Fellwoods as the new name.

We will phase out ‘The Moss’ slowly, with plenty of notice to all concerned parties.  Thanks everyone for your support, and we look forward to the future with a new moniker.  Look for news about CD and Vinyl releases of our Wulfram album, as well as a whole new batch of songs awaiting recording.

Thanks,

Fellwoods (formerly, The Moss)


Daily Bandcamp Feature – The Moss – Wulfram

Today’s featured album is no stranger to these pages. Today’s featured Bandcamp Album is Wulfram by The Moss. Wulfram is easily becoming one of my top picks for 2011 and from the looks of it, the top pick for many others as well. You can read my review of Wulfram HERE.

The Moss seem to play a unique brand of psychedelic blues with a lot of Sabbath inspired doom, plenty of great sounding riffs and some 70′s progressive hard rock ala Hard Stuff, Fuzzy Duck or Atomic Rooster.

Veteran Brothers Ben and Adam met during the Centaurus Campaigns and bare the scars to prove it. They came West from the cold North seeking easier game. Beth reads stones and plays 327 instruments and counting. Tony’s only interest is his swordsmanship. He travels with us in hopes to meet his match one day. There is doubt that day will ever come. The Moss formed in Summer of 2010.

Review – The Moss – Wulfram

Here’s an album that I listened to just now and thought that this is some bad ass stuff. The band is The Moss from Portland, OR. They’ve been together for a little over a year now and put out a 12 track “demo” titled Wulfram. If you remember last year, The Heavy Eyes recorded some songs and called it a “demo.” The Moss seem to be in that same boat as Wulfram doesn’t sound like a bunch of demos, it sounds like a full blown full length release. It sounds really really good too.

The Moss seem to play a unique brand of psychedelic blues with a lot of Sabbath inspired doom, plenty of great sounding riffs and some 70’s progressive hard rock ala Hard Stuff, Fuzzy Duck or Atomic Rooster. Vocally, Adam Burke does have a similar voice to Dylan Francis (The Suede Brothers). The album doesn’t rely heavily on effects and sound bits although there is a little bit of it. (more…)
