The spark that ignited Fury of a Dying Planet came after Doug Rimington watched the Netflix documentary, Seaspiracy. With the music already down in demo form, in one week, he wrote the lyrics and recorded vocal melodies for all 6 songs, ready for the right voice to add the final touch.

Doug, a London based musician and producer, took a break from recording the 2nd album of prog metal band, Heart Through Sacrifice, and let his passion for the environment flow to write 6 tracks filled with heavy guitars, battering drums, electronics and powerful lyrics pushed by melodic rock vocals courtesy of Paul Brigstock (Blacklight Vice).

The lead single entitled ‘Bloodied Fjords’ acts as the perfect introduction to the power and pace of FoaDP. Beginning with ambient tapping bass lines and the ominous lyrics, ‘Blood in the water, choking sand, I cannot breathe’ symbolizing the plight of the dolphin pods hunted and slaughtered without mercy in the Faroe Islands. The name of this track is a homage to the Sea Shepherd operation, Bloody Fjords. Long-time collaborator Bec Dennison of Bullet on a String was keen to join in and she created the main logo using thin lines reflecting life on the planet hanging in the balance.

All music has been written, performed and produced by Doug Rimington. Session drummer, Chris Allan, engineered the drums and mixed the album with mastering carried out by Justin Hill, (Heart of a Coward, Walls of Jericho, SikTh).

Speaking on the album and project as a whole, Doug explains, ‘This album is my vent to the world of all my frustrations at the state of the environment and the way mankind treats our very home. I hope to use this platform to raise awareness and also to support those who fight for the planet by donating all profits to environmental charities’.
