Fume Album review by Organ Magazine
FUME A History of Things To Come (The Devil Knows Your Dead) - Fume dish out a delightfully violent and vengefully unrelenting blast of proper old school brutal old school old school old school punk as f nihilistic metallic hardcore metal that's laced with atmospheric doomness, delightfully dark passages and scruffy beards. A healthy kind of Stamping Ground of bolt throwing delight 'n crunch for Terror fans who are sick of it all, and oh yes, pull up a chair, we got a good one. Fume are from Coventry (someone has to be), they rumble and then then then when you're just about comfortable with their rumble they stomp you. You know the first time I heard of BoltThrower it was on John Peel's radio show, I thought he said Bulb Thrower, instantly got this image in my head of mad Dutch crust-punks throwing bulbs around some windmill in a field, got straight on to them and Bolt Thrower became one of the very first bands on ORG back when we were doing very very DIY mailorder tapes. I miss those early days, Fume take me right back there, glorious (Daz Russell should re-open the Brum Mermaid just for them). Proper old school doomy hardcore dirty stinking crust-metal. Hey, now don't go getting the impression that this is all one dimensional, oh no. Fume are clever and they know how to explore light and shade and add a little extra imagination to their brutal stomp - they've even got a very delicate, almost post-rock, instrumental called Instrumental on here while they let us take that breather we all need before they get back to all the guttural growling and the menace and the brutal language and the churning riffs and demanding thrash-outs and the seas of hostile emotion and the blatant disregard of punctuation... Ah yes, I needed this, nice one Fume, a very fine debut album, proper old school hardcore metal.
