Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina and emerging from the mist with their new release “Count the Fogs” is Gnarlscar. These heathens play some progressive death metal and within “Count the Fogs” you are provided with five raw and forever twisting new tracks. Each of the tracks on this release are decent in the length which gives Gnarlscar plenty of time to capture your mind and have it wander through the soundscapes that they provide. “Count the Fogs” isn’t a release that is revolutionary in the progressive death metal genre, but it certainly is a solid release none the less. This is your straight forward progressive death metal and if you are looking for some no bullshit, no filler type of progressive death, then this release should be right in your wheelhouse.

               “Count the Fogs” is filled with plenty of energy, tempo changes and acrobatic instrumentation to keep you listening and interested. Each song blasts along at a steady pace never to slow down too long before hitting you with even more rumbling death metal. The five songs that are present on this release are ever shifting and changing and you never really end up hearing the same sound twice as Gnarlscar does a great job of mixing it up with each song providing you with different sounds and different looks within each song and across this release.

               Overall, “Count the Fogs” is a solid listen as it provides you with solid musicianship and plenty of content to keep you satisfied, but it seems as though there is just something missing to push the overall sound of Gnarlscar over the top. If you are looking for something that is fun to listen to and easily palatable and easy to listen to numerous times, “Count the Fogs” is a good release to listen to.
