Hellfire are a band from Ukraine that plays a very heavy form of black metal with elements of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2017 cassette "Goat Revenge" which was released by Iron County Records.
A war oriented intro starts off the album and after the intro the music goes into a thrash influenced black metal direction along with a mixture of death metal growls and high pitched black metal screams and the riffs also use a great amount of dark sounding melodies along with the faster sections using a great amount of blast beats.
Both old school and modern black metal influences can be heard in the bands musical style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the tremolo picking in the faster sections of the songs also gives the music more of a raw feeling and melodic guitar leads are also utilized on some of the tracks.
Hellfire plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in a very traditional black metal sound while also adding in a touch of death and thrash metal, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Armageddon, Occultism, Satanism, Darkness, and War themes.
In my opinion Hellfire are a very great sounding traditional black metal band with elements of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hellmass Attack" "Unholy Cult" and "Lord Of The Mighty Horns". 8 out of 10.
