Red Seas Fire

wheelandfire:

The new Red Seas Fire EP, Confrontation, is absolutely brilliant. Everything about it is a big step up from their previous releases, and I loved every single second of those as well. The heavy is heavier, the pretty is prettier, and the composition only continues to show exactly why, in my opinion, PeteyG and co are some of the best songsmiths in the genre. I’m probably most blown away by the vocal performance. I have always loved Robin’s voice and approach, and hearing how he’s developed it across each release has been great fun. This time out, he’s firing on all cylinders, delivering a performance that hasn’t yet stopped giving me goosebumps. His screams are more visceral and unique than ever, and delivered with absolute feeling. And while he’s always had a great singing voice, he seems to be perfectly in his element on Confrontation.  He’s done an amazing job conveying the emotion behind the lyrics; there’s a bit towards the end of Compass, a mostly sung piece, where he slides into a scream, his voice cracks on the last word and you can just feel the anxiety he’s trying to convey. The attention to detail put into recording this EP is obvious. These guys deserve more credit and fame. Yo Periphery/Tesseract/Intervals/etc, I’m real happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Red Seas Fire has some of the most concise, emotionally moving and exhilarating prog metal of all time.

If you haven’t listened to it yet, please do yourself a favor and head to www.redseasfire.com and give Confrontation a download. It, and all their releases, are available for free! But if you like what you hear (and you will), please think about donating or purchasing merch. These lads deserve every cent. 

This means so SO much. Thanks dude!

Red Seas Fire - Compass, from their latest EP, Confrontation

this band is pure feeling

Red Seas Fire - “Compass”

"The moral compass set to south
Down down where you’re heading
There is no light to see underground
No light to see what is missing
One day you’ll see the surface
To create a life worth living

Now I see you for what you are (we’ve left alone)
And It’s a mess you’ve made
How the promises faded away

The story goes that I have lost
The only way of stopping you

Stop talking down to me
You may think that it shows superiority
But all I see are the cracks in your composure
Revealing insecurities

This is bred through your inferiority
And the lack of who take you seriously
A desperate cry to be heard
A foolish cry to be accepted by
Those who never care nor quiver at your words.

I’m done with taking orders
It’s time to live life as I please
If all the mistakes I’ve made
Have made me the man I am today
How can I feel regret
This is the end that I’ve made
The suffering you’ve caused
Will never cease to end

Streaming with colours
Pierced by the eyes
That scream out your name
And they pray its not the end

Streaming with colours
Pierced by the eyes
That scream out your name
And they pray its not the end

We can’t, we’d suffer again
To find the words unspoken
I can see what I’ve become

We can’t, we’d suffer again
To find the words unspoken
I can see what I’ve become

The end is closer in this life
Than I care to dream, but its not over yet.”
