EP Review: Zero Fire – Second Sun (Self Released)

Canadian hard rock/Alternative metal band Zero Fire will unleash their new EP, Second Sun on March 22nd 2019.

The band commented “We’re very excited to release our new EP, Second Sun, on March 22nd, 2019. We’ve worked long and hard to try and craft something that captures the essence of what our band is about. We’ve tried to draw from our influences like Deftones, Queens of the Stone Age and The Mars Volta to create something that’s full of heavy riffs but also stays stuck in your head. We hope everyone enjoys this record as much as we do.”

Zero Fire 2

Reminiscent of melodic heavy soundscapes that the likes of Deftones create, Zero Fire’s brand of hard rock has much appeal. Booming bass hooks, fascinating riffs and sultry vocals, Second Sun is a riveting listen.

Slides is an immediate absorbing listen with hidden depths while Ghosts is a far more straight-forward listen with these moments of vivid heaviness. The dreary melody of Disaster Symphony initially flounders but the as it goes on, the guitars really breathe life into it. Making it a far more gratifying listen.

The pace then quickens for Gout Mouth and then slows again for Heart Divided. The grungy rhythm in the latter is very welcome and as an EP conclusion, more then satisfying.

Overall, it’s a solid and dependable EP. Nothing major stands out but nothing about isn’t enjoyable either.
