Review by Mark Pritchard
A couple weeks back I asked Ever Metal about the possibility of reviewing London based Death Metal band ‘LVCIFYRE’ purely, and I will admit this, because I really like the band name. I hadn’t heard of them before, something I regret now that I have heard what they can do. But as with all bands that are new to me, I haven’t looked back, and with heavy guitar playing and hard drumming with intense vocals these guys don’t mess around.
I have been listening to this EP called ‘Sacrament’ for the last few weeks continuously with a few breaks here and there and need I say that I really like it. This EP contains a bit of a lead up to songs, something that I really like. There is a slow start before it leaps into the song really intensively and everything comes at you at 100 mph. There is no time to breathe, just complete and unstoppable headbanging and all I have to say is that thank god I had paracetamol on hand!
I can honestly say that, with Cultus on bass, Menthor on drums and T. Kaos on guitars and vocals, this band aren’t a glass half full band. They are the full glass with water still being poured in and overflowing. One thing I noticed throughout the EP is that there is an intensity in all the songs which really transmits the immense passion they have for what they do and, anyone who listens to them play, either live or via CD, can absolutely see, hear and feel that passion and dedication.
I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this awesome EP which is reflected in the score I have given it. It is such an awesome EP, with high intensity and an ‘in your face’ presence’ and I can’t get enough of it.
I do have a favourite song, ‘Shadowy Wing’ and its nice slow start before hitting into the main song really drew me in.
I want to say a huge thank you to Ever Metal for giving me the chance to review LVCIFYRE and this awesome EP, and I also want to say a huge thank you to the band, itself, for putting so much work and passion into this EP.
It really has been one hell of a listening experience.
