“With its apparent simplicity it has become the blueprint for classic heavy metal”
“There are things that could have been done better, but this is an encouraging first step.”
FFO: Angel Witch, Visigoth
A small release, but tightly packed with interesting and engaging songs.
Suffers from a lack of consistency.
Occasionally fun, but incoherent and weirdly anachronistic.
It’s got a steel dragon shooting lasers on the cover and that’s basically what it sounds like.
Neat offering of dark ambient and metal, but way too short.
A very familiar listen that won’t turn any heads.
There’s a word to describe a record like this, and that word is “banger.”
Hellions of Fire is an album that reminds me why I love metal.
