ALBUM CONSUMED BY FIRE
OUR RATING 85/100
The second album of Messerschmitt, which has just been released on May 23rd, was out.
CONSUMED BY FIRE is a great example of oldschool speed metal metal which you’ll surely appreciate.
This new album is availible actually digitally only at the moment; there will be CDs and vinyl versions on FTWCTP records in the last slice of the years.
FAIRCHILD is the first shot, an attack with a giant dose of steel, classic no-frills speed metal enhanced by roaring bass and pressing but dynamic drums.
Vocals and backing vocals are effective and we can appreciate smart changes of time and inspired solo parts.
The following song is the title track, fast and furious, maybe a bit darker, while PSYCHOQUEEN provides a various texture and again solo parts are to remark.
THE VANISHING STRAINS, after a soft arpeggio starts more classic, powerful but less fast before the mad run in the last slice.
ARMS OF HAVOC is a war machine, a relentless speed metal track followed by A MASTERFUL BLOODSHED, another ace.
HEMATIC WRATH shows a great structure, all sounds perfect, before AND I CRAVE TO DIE ends in the best way this great platter!
TO SUGGEST WITHOUT HESITATION!!
