Atavistic Black Metal. Folk for The Fall from British Columbia. Harrow's third full-length album. Finally released on CD format. Harrow are Canadian black metallers, formerly known as Wraith until 2011. 'Fallow Fields' is their third album, following on from 2011's 'Wanderer' and 2013's 'Fragments of a Fallen Star'. Harrow play a Drudkh/Wolves in the Throne Room style of atmospheric black metal, with a ghostly hypnotic drone permeating through each track. Delicate acoustics that lead into a raging black metal frenzy, coated in an ethereal mood and wih some haunting keyboard effects in the background. There has been a massive explosion in this kind of black metal in the past few years, and it's hard for bands to stick out but Harrow have got their own particular charm, coupling an almost tribal and ambient styling with the more prominent black metal moments. Harrow's compositions are evocative and addictive. There's something about this kind of black metal, with the emphasis on the atmosphere and the 'feeling' it generates. Harrow have got that magic for me. 'Fallow Fields' is a hidden gem in the world of atmospheric black metal. Arriving with little fanfare, but leaving you emotionally drained and yet invigorated at the same time, Harrow have weaved something intoxicating here.
