New York's Fire For Effect - featuring former members of Malevolent Creation, Pestilence and Suffocation - signed on with Agonia Records for a debut album expected late this year (2018). A promo clip, featuring studio footage and commentary can be seen above.
The band commented: "Hey Guys, We are very happy to announce that we will be working with Agonia Records. As you can see we are working hard and rehearsing our songs that will be appearing on our debut album coming out later this year. You all will be very pleased with what you hear."
Fire For Effect was formed in 2016 and found its resting place at Agonia Records after playing several gigs and releasing their first 3-song demo "Into The Breach." The band's origin is undeniably tied with Malevolent Creation - featuring the latter's two key, currently ex-members. Originally launched as guitarist's Gio Garcia's solo project, events took an unexpected turn when singer Brett Hofmann stepped in, and the duo exited Malevolent Creation for good. Shortly later they were briefly joined by bassist Tony Choy of progressive death metal icons Atheist and Cyinc, and Suffocation's founding drummer Mike Smith. In 2018 Smith was replaced by another gifted drummer, Derek Roddy (previously of Hate Eternal). Bassist Paul Mcbride (Ends) completes the band's line-up.
Stay tuned for more information, which is expected soon.
