The Safety Fire – ‘Huge Hammers’

The Safety Fire – ‘Huge Hammers’

The Safety Fire are a progressive metal band who have only recently signed to Inside Out Music. After being sent a link to their most recent single entitled “Huge Hammers” I didn’t know what to expect because in honesty I had not heard of these guys before. I am now hanging my head in shame for not discovering these guys sooner.
After watching the lyrical video for ‘Huge Hammers’ several times on YouTube it is plain to see that this is the definition of progressive metal. It is obvious that The Safety Fire having been homing their craft since their formation in 2006 and that it’s paying off for them as they set off on tour with Rise To Remain this month.
With the music being progressive it is all the harder to pigeon hole and compare with other bands which is obviously what the band are aiming towards but never the less it makes it rather difficult for us poor writers. With an exciting mix of screaming that sounds as if front man Sean McWeeney has been suckling on an exhaust pipe alongside an infectious clean vocal make for an exciting listen.
Along with this vocal attack comes music that is anything but simple through out the entirety of the track. Consistently going from fast paced metal to a mellow down beat groove shows that The Safety Fire are more than capable of exploring metal music in all its different genres and showing the theory that lies behind it.
All in all this track is a must listen, even if you aren’t into metal or rock you can’t discard the talent that these guys possess. 8/10
