2018 album also available in Vinyl.
Alice In Chains after a hiatus of five years are releasing ‘Rainier Fog’ their sixth studio album and the first Alice In Chains album to be recorded in more than 20 years to be recorded in their hometown Seattle (worth noting that the album title is a tribute to Seattle), where the band recorded at the same studio where, once upon a time, they laid down their 1995 self-titled LP. Additional recording was done in Nashville and Los Angeles with the help of producer Nick Raskulinecz and engineer Paul Figueroa. It was mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool).
“The newest record, Rainier Fog (the title a soaring tribute to Seattle itself) is another step further into the brilliance and musicality of what we have now come to expect from AIC. Sean Kinney’s super unique drum style tells one epic story, Inez’s brooding bass lines tell yet another, Duvall’s guitar prowess and lead vocals guide and narrate and nurture the triumph and torture of the subject matter, and Cantrell’s jaw-dropping songwriting, vocals, and now-legendary riff-master approach all combine for another simply brilliant effort.
“The One You Know” will rip your fucking head off, as will “So Far Under” and title track “Rainier Fog,” and the searingly apropos “Red Giant” is deadly truth to power. “All I Am” and “Fly” give time for deeper inner-reflection and that classic AIC sound-scaping that we all love. From top to bottom, Rainier Fog is, like all great Alice In Chains albums, “all killer and no filler
.”This is a band to cherish and be thankful to have as our own. Our living and breathing gauge of what is right with rock and fucking roll.” – Duff McKagan (Guns ‘N Roses).
