Album Review

Vintage thrash metal was considered to be a dead dinosaur by many during the '90s, as grunge (Alice in Chains), power metal (Pantera), nu-metal (Korn), and rap-metal (Rage Against the Machine) seemed to all but bury the aforementioned metallic style. But by the early 21st century, countless groups rediscovered the likes of Exodus, Metal Church, and Testament, as thrash metal came roaring back from the dead. Case in point, Fueled by Fire, and their 2007 debut for Metal Blade (a label that almost single-handedly launched thrash in the first place), Spread the Fire. Down-picked crunchy riffs, galloping rhythms, shredding solos, shouted vocals, tasteless album cover art — yep, you know the deal by now — and song titles that absolutely scream "THRASH METAL!" ("Massive Execution," "Command of the Beast," etc.). And the group (all of whom dress like it's still 1987 — as seen on the CD's back cover) appear willing to die by their stylistic sword, as evidenced by "Thrash Is Back" and "Metal Forever." If you want ground-breaking metallic sounds, this is not the place. But for familiar, authentic thrash, Fueled by Fire are your new go-to guys.

This is REAL [yes] metal

I've been into metal since I started high school and being a big fan of the old school metal from the classics to some of the better, modern day acts from Europe, this is by far the one of the best comebacks for metal. I'm tired of all these hardcore bands [sorry kiddies, Scars of Tomorrow and Everytime I Die do not count as 'metal'] getting exposure. This is what needs to be heard. Long live the thrash rebirth.

Thrash Is Back!

I have been a huge THRASH fan since the term was created. These guys made me feel like it was the early '80's all over again. Great band with a tight sound. Great vocals that reminded me of early Exodus. This is a definite standout amongst the stack of discs that have recently been coming out proclaiming to be the best of the "thrash revival". Buy it now!

Thrash is Back

Good to hear the old school thrash sound. Great album.

Biography

Formed: 2002 in Los Angeles, CA

Years Active: '00s, '10s

After nearly a dozen personnel rotations, thrash metal outfit Fueled by Fire fine-tuned their sound into an explosive act in the vein of '80s speed demons Slayer, Overkill, and Testament. The group started humbly enough in 2002, when drummer Carlos Gutierrez and guitarist Sal Zepeda decided to start jamming together. After some asking around, they ultimately found bassist Adrian Gallego and vocalist Rick Rangel, and formed a full band. After some time went by, Gallego quit the group, Rangel moved...
