about

Portland, OR’s ultimate hard-rockin’ party bringers emerge from two years of constant touring with their new full length album ‘Whales And Leeches’. There’s certainly no shortage of fun on their new record, but ‘Whales And Leeches’ sees Red Fang further maturing into top notch songwriters and musicians. With the help of guests Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession), ‘Whales And Leeches’ further propels Red Fang into the upper stratosphere of hard rock and metal elite. Red Fang have always been true masters of the hard rock hook and with ‘Whales And Leeches’ they deliver 11 killer, instantly classic anthems.

about

Red Fang Portland

Ever since their inception, RED FANG have strived to write heavy, catchy music underlaid with subtle complexities. Founded in 2005, the band had a distinctive and fully-formed sound right from the start: a mix of compelling rock songwriting and party-hard metal euphoria that speaks to the headbanger, the hesher, and the music student alike. ... more

Track Name: DOEN
Winter is your doom
Sunset comes too soon
In lands of midday black
Undead hordes attack

Bells of death toll
Chaos unfolds
Humans bled dry
No one survives

Winter is your doom
Sunset comes too soon
Endless feasts of blood
Where there is no sun

Bells of death toll
Chaos unfolds
Humans bled dry
No one survives
Track Name: Blood Like Cream
I refuse to sleep
I will not eat
I'm drowning in my bed

Bind her hands to mine
And make her blind
She's lost the rest of time

Babe, frothing at the teat
Carry him to me
His blood like cream

Stars that fade away
Their light will dissipate
And carve another name

Cut it up
Cut it up
Cut it up
Just before I take it

Paint your lips with blood
And clean your eyes
You've stripped away the skin

Babe, frothing at the teat
Carry him to me
His blood like cream

Cancer of thinking
Thinking
You've left behind
All that
You're wasting
Wasting away
Track Name: No Hope
My nervous system
Wrapped so tight
Bones so brittle
I bleed inside
Face is burning
Hands so cold
Now your excuses
Are getting mighty old

No hope no, no going home x4

The creep is crawling
Deep below
He likes me better
When I lose control
Burning bridges
Digging holes
His words are poison
They're all I know

You're not so pretty
Your heart's so cold
Your jokes aren't funny
Your souls been sold
You're not so smart
There's a crack in your smile
Your shit won't fly
You're a useless pile
Track Name: Crows in Swine
Wasted angel
Broken halo
Wings of emerald
Empty bottles

Lost for time
Soaked in brine
Nickeled and dimed
Crows and swine

Burned out all doubt
Take back your skin
You've been broken
No light to fail

Lost for time
Soaked in brine
Nickeled and dimed
Crows in swine
Track Name: Voices of the Dead
It feels so strange
To be erased
Why was I
All that remained

Look what we've made
A shit parade
Buried in it
Can hardly breathe

Eyes so weak and skin so grey
Dying voices sing to me
Eyes so weak and skin so grey
Dying voices sing to me

Mountains fall and oceans rise
Build the world and watch it die

No gods to praise
No flags to raise
Kids in the sky
Won't make the grade

It feels so strange
To be erased
There is nothing
Nothing to save

Eyes so weak and skin so grey
Dying voices sing to me

Mountains fall and oceans rise
Build the world and watch it die
Track Name: Behind The Light
We've come so far away from home
The days and nights are all the same
It's so insane to be alone
With all the time I gave away

You walk behind the light
You walk behind it
You won't defend the lie
You'll never make it...

With hardly any hope to grow
You've got a contract with a hole
Carry that weight until the end
You've got no fight to win

These times you would erase
These times of sorrow
You want it to be safe
You want it to be...

Now you've come to see
What you're wanting
What you need from me
You want me dying...
Track Name: Dawn Rising
Staring searching
A shell of a shadow
Tried so hard to be right
Becoming so wrong
Until nothing was left
And nothing was right

I still hear
The clash of weapons
Disguised as words
So easy to begin
So hard to end
So easy to begin
And so hard to end

Dawn
Dawn rising
Sun shine burning
Feels like defeat

An empty zero
Living flatline
It felt like misery
The truth that set me free
The world a mirror
Bloodied and broken

Screaming riot
Screaming riot riot
Until nothing was left
And nothing felt right
'til nothing was left
And nothing felt right

Dawn
Dawn rising
Sun shine burning
Feels like defeat

An empty zero
Who lives in flatline
It felt like misery
The truth that set me free
The world a mirror
Broken, bloodied and cracked

Screaming riot
Screaming riot
Screaming riot
Track Name: Failure
Don't fail me, don't fail me now [2x]

You take the lies I give to you
You take them all to make them true
Now the soil has turned face down
What is that sound? There ain't nothing around

Don't fail me, don't fail me now [2x]

Backing down in my darkest place
The chains on the ground are the lines in my face
Scratch on the wall is a ghost of you
You make them all and make them true

You don't know me, but you will

It's something else I'm feeling
There's something wrong
It's something else that we found out

You don't know me, but you will

A seething mass has gone to ground
To let it sleep I kill my town
Bar the door. Sink away
It's alive. It's too late

You don't know me, but you will
Track Name: 1516
Scan the seas
Deep below
Drought of life where we
Plot our course

There's no way out
God will not answer
There's no way out
Damn all who enter

Dusty deep
Grey reefs swarm
Water's warm, but our
Bodies freeze

Bathed in rust
Losing sleep
Now to leap into
Burning fire

There's no way out
God will not answer
There's no way out
Damn all who enter

AFIRE!
AFIRE!
AFIRE!
AFIRE!
Track Name: This Animal
The captain's weary
She's lost in wine
The ship is listing
With a broken spine
Home system calling
No husband now
The galley's holding
The end of us all

[Chorus:]
It's in us all [3x]
It's in us all, this animal, it's in us all
It's in us all [3x]
It's in us all, this animal, it's in us all

All hands gone missing
Blood banks are dry
Dead vessel screaming
An empty hull
Adrift in silence
Breathe breath no air
All comms are hissing
In space so cold

[Chorus]
Track Name: Every Little Twist
Wanting eyes, they were burning green
Trying to see what cannot be seen
Where no wind blows
Where no grass grows
Hold a thought for the ones we leave behind

Crawl away on an empty plain
Fallow earth that will cover me
Where no wind blows
Where no grass grows
Every little twist is what it seems

She's awake but she's not alive
Final daughter of another time
Where the grass grows
Where the wind blows
Crying out with a voice that is not mine
