Stay True Or Die!!!


THIS BLOG IS NOT DEAD!!! Okay with that out of the way allow me to introduce you to a band I recently stumbled across who just blew me away with a youthful vigor and unyielding love for real Heavy Metal. No retro cool, no ironic facial hair, no tattoos, just five baby faced bangers from Daly City calling themselves Hell Fire. These duders are just barely out of high school and already outplaying many of the seasoned Shreddy Roosevelts out there, and doing it on some right crappy gear no less. Kind of sounding like the classic German bands Grave Digger and Helloween, Hell Fire also inject a bit of Bay Area dirt head thrash in their trip. They were cool enough to flow me this cool CDR demo with a the humble caveat that this is a bit outdated and may not be the best representation of the band. I tend to agree, the drums are a bit "suspicious" sounding and this piece of plastic can in no way truly convey the sheer joy of playing and charm Hell Fire overflow with in the live setting. Seriously, support these kids, they absolutely deserve it.

Glad you are back!

The lack of retro cool and ironic facial hair (sick of that shit) makes me like Hellfire already.

Completely off topic, but I was wondering if you had any other links for the Maria Kannon stuff? It seems as though they had been victims of the great file-sharing holocaust.

Hellfire are great kidz; I'm pretty sure at least one of their dads was part of the early days of the original Bay Area Metal scene. I consider them to be one of the heirs to the Murder In The Front Row legacy.

Thanks for this. Good to see a local metal band that's not doing the same stuff as everyone else. Yeah, I can defo. hear Grave Digger & Kai Hansen-era Helloween and a bit of Running Wild. Also, points for the phrase "Shreddy Roosevelts". And welcome back.
