Suppressive Fire, Nemesis, Enigmatic Path

When: Fri., Dec. 4, 9:30 p.m. 2015

The first hint of Suppressive Fire’s debut LP, Bedlam, is the four-and-a-quarter minute rush “The Hellwraith.” The rest of Bedlam won’t emerge until January, but the Raleigh band’s preview single excites the appetite. Mingling the surging pace of thrash with death metal deliberation, it suggests Celtic Frost’s momentum and Toxic Holocaust’s enthusiasm. While last year’s Hellwraith demo showed Suppressive Fire’s reverence for its influences, it felt like heavy metal comfort food—satisfying but not particularly adventurous. Bedlam suggests a next step, where old sounds start to take on new life. —Bryan C. Reed
