    Haemic
    Fields of Sanguine
    2012
    Full Length
    Independent
    Symphonic Black Metal

    Taiwanese black metal band Haemic is a rather interesting band, and is one of the displays of how powerful the internet has become as a tool for musicians, with the band comprising members who have never actually met each other and formed over media channels such as YouTube. Each individual member of the band recorded their parts, compiled them together, and the final work is released in the form of Haemic's debut full length album, Fields of Sanguine. And with a recording budget of only $20 as claimed by the band, this leaves one wondering how Fields of Sanguine would actually turn out.

    But as the album begins though, I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. With just $20, one would almost expect extremely low-fi, bedroom quality mixing and mastering of the album but while the production of the album is certainly nothing stellar…
