Living Fields, The: Running Out Of Daylight

The Living Fields seem to have a liking for the dark and moody world that surrounds us in our day- to- day life. Through a blend of different musical styles the lads try to bring us a type of music which I believe to be among the lines of Type 'O' Negative. Very dark and Moody.

Always a melody present, grunting when appropriate, loud singing near to shouting, great soundscapes, song structures where you have the obscure and heavy parts with riffs and pounding drums, growing into acoustic guitar bits with very clean singing.

Growing stronger to pure heavy songs, the band gives us an hours worth of progressive Metal. I will not put it into a more specific box as I think it is progressive metal all the way, though with some plain heavy metal influences as well as black metal, doom, gothic, and indie. Lots of great music to be enjoyed, as the band deliver subjects dealing with the stamina you need to climb Mount Everest in "Perserverance", and Slavery and Civil Wars in "From Miseries To Blood Drenched Fields", as the mood of war and life next to it is grasped very beautifully.

How to divorce and the sheer sadness it brings to all who divorce is brought to song in "When the walls go up", sounding like a song played from an LP when it starts together with acoustic guitars, The song in all its emotions and sadness is absolutely smashing, and I believe a divorcee would probably easily relate to this song.

Each song deals with a subject in life. The Epic title track of the album talks about the life and times of one named Galileo Galilei, a well gifted visionary of ancient history. The Living Fields show that they have the ability of composing an epic song with a length of 16 + minutes.

Overall, Running Out Of Daylight is a fantastic journey through ancient history, with not a flaw to be found... brilliant.
