Gladiators Eat Fire: Gladiators Eat Fire

Seattle is the place to be if you want to hear angry, loud music in the USA. The self-titled debut full length by Gladiators Eat Fire will peel the wallpaper of your room, an ear bleeding collection of hardcore post-grunge songs.

Loud Is The New Freedom is their mantra, but there is method in their sonic mayhem. Listen closely and plenty of patterns come crawling out. Psychedelica and progressive rock are lurking in the shadow. Sure, they wear evil grins but once you come closer they are quite friendly. The slow burning Obarama contains a few licks that Robert Fripp could have come up with. Thumbs up for the new contestants in the musical arena.

Gladiators Eat Fire:
Mark Blazer : vocals
Brian Kim : guitar
