Red Fang started out at the height of stoner rock's popularity, and the band's music displays some of the hallmarks of that movement: sludgy, colossal riffs and distorted vocals scaled to epic dimensions. But the members of Red Fang also spent some of their '90s youth in Portland, witnessing all those great bands of the Northwest that were more noise rock and punk than metal. Acts like the burly but playful KARP and the moodily dynamic Unwound partly inspired Red Fang's roaringly triumphant sound. Now touring with Big Business, which includes former KARP singer and bassist and current Melvins bassist Jared Warren, these guys are paying that early inspiration forward.
