Elias Black brings the “fire”
Half stoner, half post-metal, half rock, half… sing along? I know we’re already over the limit of “halfs”, but this is how it sounds like
Elias Black‘s single “Fire” is a song of multiple aspects and musical influences. The immediate impression is kinda stoner, fuzzy guitars. As we go on these guitars “unfuzz” a little, kick on the distortion and the chorus of the track becomes a rather easy to follow sing along style verse. The vocals remind me a little of Neurosis, with female vocals chorusing a few of the lyrics that add extra melody. A surprise pops in mid track or so with the piano accompanying the guitars.
The single “Fire” is the opening track of alt-rocker Elias Black’s darkly cathartic album, Reclamation. The album covers recovering from loss, professional and personal upheaval. It’s a vulnerable and vicious masterwork made in the face of great adversity. A kind of black celebration.
“I’ve been alone a lot recently, away from the people that I love for weeks on end. That song is about the effect of that, it exhausts you and tests you as an individual. It tests your relationships,” says Elias about “Fire”.
