Fire For Glory - Single Review: Daughters

05 Dec 2017 // A review by voodoobloo
Two things have always stayed consistent (for me at least) when listening to Fire For Glory:

1. The vocal work on every track never fails to impress me

2. I can never get enough of their ever-growing sound, becoming more and more definitive with each project FFG release.

Their latest single, Daughters follows this pattern, though I can't help but feel that it has done more than just that, I feel that Fire for Glory's latest project has given me a truly new experience I was not expecting, keeping me hungry for more.

This track does a great job of mixing the old with the new. As soon as I heard those opening synths chiming in I knew something was different this time around, but the guitar riffs on this thing definitely made me feel like I was taken back to the "The Kid's Got Guts" days. To hear this great, big mix of new artistic directions and the band bringing themselves back to their roots really makes me excited for what the future has to offer.

Though to say this definitive sound did not have any influences would be untruthful. Personally, I hear quite a lot of Korn and various other nu-metal artists that could have easily persuaded this single into the song it has become.

One thing I really have to give props to is the awesome vocals. Every listen of this track is an absolute pleasure, and having such a distinctive, wide vocal range on every FFG track (especially this latest release) is something I cannot get enough of.

If you haven't done already, go and check out Fire for Glory's latest release Daughters on Spotify, and hopefully you'll be just as excited as me for the future of this band.

About Fire For Glory

Fire For Glory were a pop-punk band based in Auckland (Now known as Stray Dogs). Bringing together elements of 2000’s era pop punk and post hardcore, Fire For Glory delivered high energy live shows that won them a solid local following throughout New Zealand, and the band made their second successful self-funded venture to Australia. As a result of a hard working, DIY touring ethic, the band earned themselves supporting slots with bands such as Motion City Soundtrack (USA), Hawthorne Heights (USA), Joyce Manor (USA) and Silverstein (Canada).

Fire For Glory saw great commercial success, having both of their EPs Phantoms, Ghosts and Monsters and The Kid’s Got Guts, and their LP Shipwreck! all reaching #1 on the iTunes New Zealand rock chart. The single Frog Prince from the second EP was also featured on Spotify’s official rock playlist, and gained the band high amounts of streaming attention.

Fire For Glory is now known as Stray Dogs!

Mundi - Album Review: The Pale Blue Dot
27 Feb 2019 // by voodoobloo
Going into this album I thought I knew what to expect from Mundi. This psychedelic dance project wowed me with their live performance at the Wellington Botanical Gardens earlier this year, but I couldn't help but feel like I'd heard all of the tricks they had hiding up their sleeves.
Gig Review: Mundi @ Botanical Gardens, Wellington - 10/01/2019
15 Jan 2019 // by voodoobloo
Before even arriving at the venue, I knew I was in for a treat. This wasn't my first visit to the Soundshell at the Wellington Botanical Gardens, but it was obvious that Mundi and the venue would go hand in hand after listening to their latest single Still Song Goes On.
Pale Lady - EP Review: Told To Fold
04 Jul 2018 // by voodoobloo
I’ve been a big fan of Pale Lady right from the first moment I saw them perform live back in 2017. Their solid alt-rock sound infused with so many other flavours makes them a very refreshing yet familiar sounding act.
Gig Review: Glen Matlock @ Valhalla, Wellington - 25/11/2017
05 Dec 2017 // by voodoobloo
As soon as I saw him walk so casually over from the side of the bar up on stage, I knew that this would be a different kind of gig, and possibly one of the most intimate experiences I would have with one of punks most beloved musicians, Glen Matlock.Throughout the night, Glen took us on an audio tour of his career, belting out songs from the rich kids, Glen Matlock and the Philistines, and what you will recognize him best for, the sex pistols.
Album Review: Headroller
18 Oct 2017 // by voodoobloo
"Stay with us now as we cross live to some poor bastard we sent straight to the depths of hell to bring you the exclusive footage you need, Jeff tell me, how much blood is there?"Now, I might have heard that quote wrong (even after multiple run-throughs of the song, Visions), but if I could fit the feeling of this whole album into a few short, simple words, it would definitely be this little skit from the beginning of the 7th track, Visions.
