Lurid - Fire Spell
"...The band deal in raw atmospheric presence and frosted melodic strength. The deep monstrous growls and some of the harsher riffs lend a brutal edge to the music in places, while the addition of serrated screams deliver sharper highlights. Lurid demonstrate an effective mix of crushing blackened heaviness and emotive melodic atmosphere. It’s a combination that suits them well and has helped the band to establish their own character early on in their existence. While the melodies are rich in feeling and very capably delivered, I’ll mention the riffs again, as Lurid apparently have an entire arsenal of them hidden away somewhere, deploying them with lethal tactical skill across the tracks. The songs are well-written and easy to enjoy. Each song is a winner, but I especially enjoy Burned at the Stake with its ferocious melodic attack."—Wonderbox Metal
