Death On Fire are a solo project from Chicago, Illinois that plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal with a touch of jazz and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "LazerWulf Demos" which will be released in May.
Tragic sounding keyboards start off the album before going into a heavier direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording while the vocals add in a more aggressive style of thrash and you can also hear a great amount of melody in the guitar riffing.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with the heaviness of death metal while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and elements of groove metal are also used at times along and growls are also utilized at times. while later tracks also show the vocals adding melody into the aggressive parts and as the album progresses elements of jazz and acoustic guitars are also added into certain sections of the recording and a later track also add in a few seconds of spoken word parts.
Death On Fire plays a musical style that takes melodic death metal and mixes it with modern thrash, groove metal and jazz to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Death On Fire a very decent sounding melodic mixture of death and thrash metal with a touch of jazz and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Slave By Your Own Hand" "Blood Eagle" "Around Your Neck" and "Coward". 7/5 out of 10.
