1 - RAPTORE - BLACKFIRE - (CD) 
DYING VICTIMS


Nevertheless, the fortified RAPTORE lineup began work during 2021 on their second album, Blackfire, entering the esteemed Moontower Studios. Immediately, right from the very first notes, Blackfire EXPLODES with an excitement that simply cannot be contained. Righteously ripping, draped in darkness but lined with purple velvet, RAPTORE here give a masterclass in spooky speed metal: fierce yet fun, authentically rooted in the 80s but not blinkered by the past, and above all ADDICTING. That the quartet can maintain a bristling energy no matter the pace - cruising, headbanging, or overdrive - is some sort of black magick; that each track is anthemic in its own right and then altogether coalesce into a unified statement of intent is simply diabolical. But, while Blackfire is most definitely the bands darkest and fastest recording to date, let it be known that not everything is of a Satanic/vampiric/demonic intent; just as many personal messages exist within the albums eight-song/32-minute runtime. Which is all to say nothing of the evocative lead-work, which is literal FIRE!
