Fire In Their Cities

Year Released: 2007
Format: 7"
Label: Right To Refuse
Reviewed by Kunal Nandi on Feb 6, 2008
The awesome destructive power of Burning The Prospect is barely contained on this fun little platter. While they basically play thrashy hardcore, with all the usual connotations and accoutrements the genre entails, the band are simply so damn good at it, banging out riff after riff of gnarly Entombed-esque action, raging speed more than matched by the crushing heaviness, with a catchy thread of melody through the two tracks on here. It sounds absolutely massive, and while it's a shame it's only a one-sided record, it is being sold for cheap. Expect their first album soon on FETO, the label co-run by Shane Embury of Napalm Death fame!
