More old-school Death Metal from Sweden’s Crucifyre can be found on their second full-length, Black Magic Fire. This stuff hearkens back to Reign in Blood-era Slayer and albums that were spawned in its wake. The riffs are thrashy, the vocals rough and evil and the lyrics profane. The songwriting is a cut above, especially the haunting, "Reign in Blood"-inspired opening to "Apocalypse Whore" and the instances of fell choirs on a couple of the other tracks. This gives Black Magic Fire enough individuality to make it worth seeking out but beyond those items most of the stuff on here isn’t particularly distinctive. We aren’t talking Desaster here but Crucifyre definitely mean business and have an undeniable passion for things unholy so grab a copy of Black Magic Fire if your tastes run in that direction. You might not be blown away but if you aren’t throwing some horns in the air you may want to check your pulse.
