F.O.B.

May 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Two years after their last album F.O.B., the warmashine from Tábor, strikes back with their brandnew album “Reap What You Sow”! The band, who started as a Death/Thrash Metal act, developed on the previous records towards a more Modern Metal sound. On “Reap What You Sow” the band continues to experiment with Metalcore and melodic vocals which are influenced by Modern Metal-trends from overseas. With frontman Mára the band has definitely found a beast of a singer who now shows his talent again. “Reap What You Sow” is the darkest album of F.O.B. so far, featuring eight-string guitars, as well as an apocalyptic narrative about a cataclysm caused by a giant flood that destroys mankind for its arrogant imposition of its laws upon nature.  You can thus look forward to ten songs, as forceful as the divine commandments, of which the brilliant single “Of a Martyr”, which has already been in circulation for some time, was the first proof!

The band from the mid-1990s has been for a long time one of those who built the reputation of the quality of the Czech extreme sound. As the new vocalist  Mára joined F.O.B. in 2008 the band started to add more Modern Metal influences to their sound. The first result was “The Dice…” (2008). Their fourth album “Tommorow’s Fires” (2011) manifested their new direction. Also in 2011 new guitarist Profesor joined the band. “Reap What You Sow” is the outcome of further experiments and modernisations. It is the first time F.O.B. worked with two guitarists, the new one being Dan Mazanec (GENUINE RELIEF). The album was mixed and mastered by Leonid Shipelik (Post Organic Records, Russia). Besides the albums the band is well known for their energetic live show. To sum it up: F.O.B. Is a guarantor for quality!
