Pembina, the first album from Edmonton electro-rockers Viking Fell, is fully energized. A unique combination of talents and styles springs the entire album to life. Viking Fell is the precise outcome of a bold mix of swift guitar rifts, electronic sounds, and echoing lyrics. The album peaks in its combinations of a raw and aggressive guitar, moderated by the animation brought out by district and well chosen digital twists. The ultimate interpretation is left to each listener: Should you rock out? Should you head bang? Should you dance? The answer to this may be lying deep in vocals on Pembina — vocals that remind me of a time when I was less concerned with over-thinking music, and more concerned with enjoying music. Regardless of how you move to Pembina, you are certain to be invigorated by Viking Fell’s reminder that music should celebrate the bold.
