Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Victim of Fire deliver an exceedingly harsh and metallic hardcore engulfed in a searing d-beat chaos and burning rage on their three track demo.
Taking nods from bands like Severed Head of State, World Burns To Death and Deathreat, these guys are seriously trying to scorch all to hell, then spit out a mouthful of ashes.
Besides the shredding guitars and galloping d-beats, this demo has some dramatic interludes and well-structured metallic hardcore parts that occasionally stray into From Ashes Rise territory, while still keeping the raw and aggressive formula in place.
It’s been really hard to find any interesting crust punk / d-beat demos recently, but Victim of Fire definitely grabbed my attention. If you haven’t heard these guys yet, now is the time.
