Harrow :: Wanderer (Prairie Fire Tapes) CASSETTE

$7 CAD
From the Prairie Fire Tapes Website:

In the spring of 2012, we had the idea to begin documenting the Canadian Black Metal scene east of the Great Lakes.


We immediately took to scouring our contacts and the internet looking for folks who producing raw BM that worked for our ears.


The first band to sign on for this project was Harrow, from Victoria B.C. Wanderer is essentially, two albums in one. The a-side (Wanderer) features studio tracks that mesh neofolk and black metal where the b-side (Wandering) is live tracks recorded on a 2011 Wanderer tour.


Pro-Duplicated and printed.

Red & Anarchist Black Metal:

Another release from Harrow - this time a full-length album, not EP."35 minutes fusing black metal and ritual folk music. A journey into the self and the conflicts and dualities which reside inside us all" (c). For me, it's pretty good album, but not enough "Cascadian"... don't know how to explain it properly. According to the band, it's okay to put it here for download, but of course you can buy it for 3 Canadian dollars on bandcamp.

Line-up:

  • I. Campbell - guitars and voice
  • K. Brickell - drums
  • C. Hellvomit - session drums

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Harrow and C. Hellvomit in The Lair, April/May MMXI

Writing About Music:

Harrow is a three piece band from Victoria, Canada, that plays very raw, nasty, sometimes doomy stuff, other times quite melodic. This band reminds me of Kreator or Bathory without the guitar solos.  Into the Valley starts with acoustic guitar as the drums build up and then intense evil thrash kicks in. The next two songs are also found on the live side of the tape. Journey into the Mountain and To weather the Storm follow. This part of the tape mellows things out for a bit with some acoustic pieces until the band kicks in hard and heavy and screaming again. Exile and Rebirth end the powerful side A. Side B of the tapes is live at the Moontower and features a couple of the songs from the A side. The sound quality is really raw and nasty. Keening starts things off doomy but then it changes to a more melodic thread. The vocals are like death metal though. In the Shadow of the Stone (also on the A side) is more lead by the bass until the noisy thrash begins. Very low fi insane sound. Vast unending Lands continues the aural assault of raw, nasty metal in this short track. After a brief talk introduction, the band kicks into the intense Wraith. Watcher (not the Motorhead/ Hawkwind track), is also very extreme music. The side ends with Snow Falls on the Night of the Solstice, which is also featured on the A side of the tape. Very Intense and raw stuff. Not easy on the ears.. Recommend to play at low volume at least the B side of the tape.
