Album Review

Far's second album, Water & Solutions, finds the Sacramento-based alternative metal band coming into their own, creating a distinctive fusion of the sober, grinding guitars of Helmet and Tool. Occasionally, vocalist Jonah Sonz Matranga oversings, and the band often concentrates on sonics at the expense of songs, but the best moments of Water & Solutions show that Far have carved out their own alterna-metal niche. It may not be as distinctive as the Deftones, but it has its own appeal.

Excellent band, a cut above the rest

Far doesn't neatly fit into a basic rock category - which, in my opinion, is a good thing. Jonah Matranga's voice is subtle and strong, and the instrumentation is melodic and forceful - with the perfect amount of crunch and sneer. I recommend both albums highly!

Over the next five years, the Sacramento natives gradually expanded their fan base through a series of 7" singles, self-released cassettes, and a pair of indie CDs on Rusty Nail and Our Own Records, as well as frequent touring. In 1996, the group...
