Death On Fire: Band who will never bend the knee!

Death On Fire - Slave

Midwest death metal outfit Death On Fire present their new single Slave.

The band comments: «Slave deals with the struggles of depression, addiction, and self-hate. It is a hard look back at life and a reminder of the decisions we face and the impacts they have on others».

Slave draws inspiration from the established pillars of extreme metal while enhancing Death On Fire s signature edge. The outfit are unafraid to push the beyond and unapologetic for striving further. Indulge in this raw and intense experience as they pursue the dark and the heavy. Death on Fire are ready to take on the world with their unique brand of metal music.

Years of touring experience, decades of studying music and a lifelong dedication to the underground. These are the things that have come to define Death On Fire, an Indiana death metal band who will never bend the knee. Formed in 2016 as a studio project by front man Tim Kenefic, the project has rapidly evolved into a hard touring sonic abomination. Dedicated to crafting technical, interesting and above all, boundary breaking music, Death On Fire has rapidly built a name for themselves as road warriors, hustling across the country in the name of that next sick show. With two full lengths, an EP and a split under their collective belts, Death On Fire have come to embody the spirit of modern death metal.

The track A Hell of Our Own Design, «Recorded on our first post COVID tour of 2021. This video highlights the fans, venues, and bands that make everything possible».

Death On Fire have descended from a different sonic ancestry from many of their contemporaries. While Carcass is perhaps an obvious point of reference, multiple listens will uncover musical references to Frank Zappa and ABBA. These diverse influences have inspired their breakneck release schedule, with four releases in the last three years.

By dedicating themselves to constant content creation, Death OnFire have been able to scrabble for opening slots for Phil Anselmo and The Illegals, Obituary and many more underground metal titans. This is a band who have strived, from the first to deliver the complete package and they are finally achieving the success they so desire.

Having rapidly made an impact across the Midwest metal scene, the band is only growing in reputation and stature. This is the sort of forward thinking project which entire scenes revolve around. The band has carefully counterbalanced their work with a strong DIY mentality. This has helped them win a unique place in the underground.

There is a sense of struggle throughout the groups work that only serves to expand on what they have done. Their latest record, Ghost Songs, is just the next step in this bold journey. Now with countless tours completed and many more to come, Death On Fire looks to take on the world.


About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
