Fervence – “Beneath the Sleeping Earth”


Fervence unleash a raucously powerful rock sound on “Beneath the Sleeping Earth,” the title track off their new album, Ghost. Forming in 2017, the Reno, Nevada-based act blend aspects of metal and hard-rock, noting influences such as Northlane, Silent Planet, and Saosin. This five-minute opener swells from patient, string-based rumination into blistering distortion, unleashing specifically at the 39-second mark and not letting go until the lush piano/acoustical interlude around 04:30. “Beneath the Sleeping Earth” is an exciting, well-produced effort that generates excitement for Ghost from the get-go.

The band describes their debut album as “a dialogue on the greater thoughts of what lies beyond the pale, the idea of life again, and the tragic way of contemplating everything in between. The album also delves into the duality of personal value, relationships, toxicity, and what it feels like to be human.”
