Doug Harrison, vocalist for Canadian progressive rock band Fen, has launched a new side project called Slug Comparison and sweetened the announcement by releasing a video for the band’s first single “Bringer Of Doom”. I wanted to bring it to you because the song has a dark edge to it and reminds me of more recent work from Katatonia. So if you’re a fan of melancholic, dark rock, this is right up your alley.
The video was directed by Peter Wilholm and tells the story of a woman who attempts suicide only to be pulled into her dream-like subconsciousness where she keeps running into a mysterious man.
Harrison states, “The story wasn’t what I had in mind when I wrote the song. But when Peter came up with the idea, I was impressed by how well it matched the lyrics, so we went ahead with making it.”
