Joining the ranks at Sliptrick Records this week:
Age Of Fire (US) Heavy Metal | Progressive Metal | Instrumental Metal
Formed in South Florida in 1988 by Greg Brown and Jeff Osias, Age Of Fire quickly set out to create their own form own thrash metal paying homage to their influences. Soon after, the pair were joined by Clint Jacoby on bass. Their self-titled debut album was released the same year and received numerous positive reviews the local and national magazines of the time. Having played clubs in New York, New Jersey and across Florida, with airplay on WSHE, WSOU, WKPX and many other radio stations, the group proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Over the following years they morphed into The Village Idiots and played more alternative rock until they disbanded in 1993.
Turn the clock to 2018 and Greg released the 30th anniversary disc of Age Of Fire that was released via all the major digital outlets. In December that year, a brand new album entitled Obsidian Dreams came out. With the overwhelmingly positive response to the release of Obsidian Dreams, this has kick-started an exciting new chapter for the band.
2019 has been a busy and productive year for Age Of Fire with more and more streaming outlets and radio station picking up their music. A new line-up including Michael Heck and Laura Viglione have been working hard on an upcoming album called Shades Of Shadow and hope to have the recording completed by the end of the year ready for release via Sliptrick Records. Shades Of Shadow expands the bands musical palette with classical influences, more instrumentals but some classic thrash as well.
