Finishing off Stage 3 on Thursday we have Flame Fracture. A five piece bringing their own blend of melodic death metal to the stage at Hammerfest.
The band have a cohesive sound and it’s good to hear their influences seeping through into the music. This is not just blunt force trauma by music, this is a band putting their twist on the death metal scene.
Don’t misunderstand me, the death metal sound is all there and done with all the skills required present and correct. The heaviness and ferocity of the deft drumming is married well to harmonising guitar breaks along with a more usual vicious stringed assault.
Vocal changes and backing vocals complimenting each other, lifting the music to provide extra balance and derivation to the songs.
The minimal space available on stage the over-excited band members jostled happily, eager to perform. Even with five members and a tiny stage, Flame Fracture managed plenty of movement to draw the crowd closer. Once the crowd were champing at the bit, stoking Flame Fracture’s musical fire, they threw all they had into their 30 minutes of stage time. One powerful set later and the crowds musical hunger was satisfied once more.
