The Living Fields plays an eclectic smelt of metals fleshed out with piano, violins, viola, cello, acoustic guitars and a variety of internal and external musical influences. Though built around a core of deep respect for the early death / doom architects, The Living Fields’ songs are rife with healthy doses of thrash, black, Viking and epic metals that reflect the underlying moods and themes of the lyrics.
Higgs’ storylines typically veer far to the left of the self-centered cliches of doom (love, loss and death) in favor of more universal horrors that flow freely from the seemingly endless parade of humanity’s self-inflicted plagues. Oppression, injustice, suffering and man’s inhumanity to man flourish with such virility in today’s world that merely turning on the news offers up ample material for an entire album. Reading any book of history provides enough for a dozen.
Though friends, the members of The Living Fields have never met, much less played together. We hope to close that divide in the coming year, but for now we do what we must.
