Years of tour experience, decades of studying music, and a lifelong dedication to the underground. These are the things that have come to define Death On Fire, a Chicago death metal band who will never bend the knee. Formed in 2016 as a studio project by frontman Tim Kenefic, the project has rapidly evolved into a hard-touring sonic abomination. Dedicated to crafting technical, interesting and above all, boundary breaking music, Death On Fire has rapidly built a name for themselves as road warriors, hustling across the country in the name of that next sick and twisted show. Intense and unapologetic, Death On Fire have come to embody the spirit of modern death metal.
Death On Fire have descended from a different musical ancestry than many of their contemporaries. While Carcass is perhaps an obvious point of reference, multiple listens will uncover musical nods to Frank Zappa and ABBA. These diverse influences have inspired their breakneck release schedule, with three releases in the last two years and another on the way. By dedicating themselves to constant content creation, Death On Fire have been able to scrabble for opening slots for Obituary, Phil Anselmo and many more icons of our age. This is a band who have strived from the first to deliver the complete package, and their hard work is paying off. After selling out of their recent album Witch Hunter, the band is preparing to release a deluxe digipack with new art and bonus tracks.
“We are extremely excited to have sold out of the first press of Witch Hunter. We wanted to do something different so we updated some art and made a digipack with three live tracks exclusive to this next pressing. Very humbled by the support on the road. Very excited for the future. Check our website deathonfire.com, or deathonfire.bandcamp.com to get you some.”
This updated edition of Witch Hunter will be released on July 15th.
