Monday, it's time for "Record Of The Week"
"Rainier Fog" is the ALICE IN CHAINS third record since the death of its iconic frontman, Layne Staley. It's has been five years since the released their stellar sophomoric release "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" with William DuVall on vocals.
"Rainier Fog" is ALICE IN CHAINS sixth full-length release for the Seattle grunge metal band, the album was produced by Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES), who produced Black Gives Way To Blue and The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.
"Rainier Fog" opens up with the leading singles "The One You Know" and "So Far Under", two tunes that really making the rounds of the album. Guitar based classic AIC tunes, where the chemistry between Cantrell and DuVall is like a loving couple, riffs, harmonies and vocals just fit perfect. The title track "Rainier Fog" is a rocker with heavy riffing, tougher vocals and great energy that drives the tune. "Fly" is a beauty, half-paced melodic piece that makes you set peace with yourself. Great heaviosity in "Red Giant" with some real crunchy guitars and the doomish track "Drone", with heavy riffing and trailing vocals that drain you like a punctured rubber duck. "Never Fade" is the album standout and have some really marvelous vocals, excellent guitar slinging work signed Cantrell and the rhythm section by drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez. The light paced tracks "Deaf Ears Blind Eyes" and "Maybe" that takes the slower melodic way to shine. The hypnotic closing by the tune "All I Am", a slow piece with an epic ending.
"Rainier Fog" is a flawless record, still modern but unconcerned with fashion, a real and exciting piece of work that only ALICE IN CHAINS could produce
Sum: "Rainier Fog" is like a flower that has just blossomed up, full of life!
Today's tune "The One You Know" is taken from "Rainier Fog", enjoy!
