Motorfire are a band from Serbia that plays a hard rock form of heavy metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Rising Fire" which was released by Metal Tank Records.
Motorcycle noises start off the album along with the sounds of chaos before going into a heavy old school metal direction along with some powerful sounding bass lines and melodic guitar leads and after the intro the Iron Maiden influence really starts showing in their sound while the vocals have a more Michael Kiske era Helloween sound to them.
There are some more mainstream metal and aor hard rock elements being added into the bands musical sound at times along with a small amount of back up shouts and the band takes an 80's style of metal and makes it sound more modern with the way the music is produced while still having all of the catchy old school elements to their sound as well as a grea t amount of NWOBHM style guitar solos and leads.
As the album progresses the music starts mixing the heaviness of true metal with the poppy song structures of hair metal while being a little bit too heavy for that particular sub genre and later on during the recording acoustic guitars are brought into the music briefly along with a power ballad before returning back to a harder direction on the following tracks which also has a few seconds of growls that have a death metal feeling to them while the guitars never get heavy in that direction and on of the tracks towards the end has a slight pre-speed metal feeling to it.
Motorfire play a very retro and hard rocking form of heavy metal but with a more updated take on the genre as well as having a great amount of catchy melodies in their sound, the production sounds very professional and the lyrics cover dark and everyday themes.
In my opinion Motorfire are a very great sounding hard rock/heavy metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Burn Out" "Ghost Rider" "Miss You" and "Demoni". 8/5 out of 10.
