Single:
“From Forge To Fire”
is a furious modern metal track which starts with a blistering solo after a short intro.
The vocals are aggressive in the couplets and melodic in the chorus’s. The breakdown is heavy and slows the song down.

A second solo will blast into your ears after a pounding drumbreak.

Lyrics wise there is a messages behind but it’s up to the listener to have their own interpretation.
