Unholy Metal Crunch! What is this loudness torturing my eardrums? Something crude. In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi? Well, almost, but blasphemously close enough. A juicy mix of a thrashy Heavy Metal beat, Death Metal and deep, dark Black Metal. And the EP Goat Revenge from the Ukrainian horde Hellfire really puts the pedal to the metal on this one in a way seldom heard these days.
Unleashing full-blooded, highly potent riffs together with throaty Death Metal growls and Black Metal rasps, their tune will awake your head-banging urges, make no mistake. At times Goat Revenge sounds like a meatier, more energized sibling of the late NordWitch record. On top, I really got a kick out of the nod to the late Abbath record in their track War Apocalypse Battery.
Hellfire got into its unholy existence in Kremenchug, Ukraine in late 2014, formed by members of the Black Metal gig Paranomia. Soon after its inception, Hellfire got down to write their own material and started to perform live by the end of 2015. With an astonishing result, as evidenced by this very short chunk of metal. Goat Revenge is their début, signed to Witches Brew records.
Great stuff, a band to be watched. Now, give in to your urge and headbang away.
Enjoy a taste of this unclean goodness:
