Brooklyn-based, indie rock outfit Fang Island crafts impossibly heavy, hymn-like anthems that blend the uplifting, accessible, hard rock melodiousness of Andrew W.K. and the D.I.Y. recording style of Surfer Blood with the offbeat, tech-heavy, progressive metal of bands like Protest the Hero and Sparta. Formed in Providence as an art project while the members were all attending the Rhode Island School of Design, the band (comprised of guitarist Jason Bartell, bassist Philip Curcuru, guitarist Chris Georges, guitarist Nicholas Andrew Sadler, and drummer Marc St. Sauveur) released its eponymous debut album through the Sargent House label in early 2010. ~ James Christopher Monger
