Red Fang have earned a stellar underground reputation for their rhythmically complex brand of hard rock, fusing stoner riffs and odd time signatures to create a truly foreboding atmosphere. Not the sort of group many fans might imagine would be produced by a member of the Decemberists, but that’s what happened when Chris Funk of baroque indie-folk heroes helmed his Portland neighbors’ 2011 and 2013 albums Murder the Mountains and Whales and Leeches. For last month’s Only Ghosts, Red Fang’s latest LP and third for Relapse Records, the quartet turned to Korn/Deftones/Slipknot veteran Ross Robinson to help them deliver another rib-bruising set of glowering riffs and breakneck tempos.
