Record Review of Davey Suicide’s soon to be released record, “Made From Fire” by The Pit Master
Davey Suicide gives this to you from the first note of “Made From Fire” which has a March 24th, 2017 release date. The intro for the record unapologetically melted my face with seven strong power chords and the haunting vocals of Davey Suicide. It also set the tone for what would be a rugged and pleasurable path with the story that surrounds the band.
“Rise Above” is the culmination of a band that has battled with several entities to regain their identity and previous works. This song is a huge middle finger to the system that damn near broke the back of Davey Suicide.
The barrage continues with “Dancing with the Reaper”, “No Angel”, and “Too Many Freaks”. The songs are filled with a rhythm section that punches a person to their soul. Davey Suicide’s vocals are powerful and the lyrics of the songs are to the point. The band showcases some serious guitar solo riffage that has been absent in rock and roll for a while. The use of keyboards during the record put the exclamation point to the songs.
I am aware of the back-story of Davey Suicide’s adventures with a former record label and spending an extensive amount of time regaining rights to their previous work. “Made From Fire” is the journey of a band from the beginning of starting new and shaking their personal demons and concludes with a phoenix-like tale of resurrection and rising from the flames and transformation to complete their battles with the people who took advantage of them.
If you are a fan of Korn, Rammstein, and Marilyn Manson you will hear the influences in their music. “Made From Fire” is loaded with hard hitting messages led by Davey Suicide’s vocals and supported by Drayven Davidson, Needlz, NikoGemini, and Derek Obscura.
The record may not be for everyone, but I like it and “Made From Fire” is in the office rotation.
