By this time they were still touring the world alongside such successful acts as Black Sabbath and grasping contributions from Patti Smith who worked on the title track and Michael Moorcock working on 'Veteran of the Psychic Wars'.
Unfortunately, the first thing that will stand out to you on 'Fire Interestingly, most of the album is very quirky and faster paced than on 'Cultosaurus As evident on 'Fire On 'Veteran of Psychic Wars' in particular, the band could not sound any more different had they fully adopted a Hip-Hop musical style.
In fact, you could link this to Hawkwind's conceptual album of that is 'The Chronicle of the Black Sword', purely for the music and lyrical content itself. This excellent use of mysterious lyrics continues throughout, as on the sorrowful 'Sole Survivor' and Creepily referenced 'Joan crawford'. Musically speaking however, many will either be disappointed or pleased with the change in sound. The title track, 'Vengeance The Pact ', 'After Dark' and curiously titled closer 'Don't turn your back' all favour the synthesisers to full effect, and even though this makes the songs stand out with enough quirkiness and energy to make listeners feel invigorated, it may put those who prefer the band's heavier sound off.
However, it sounds as if the band love doing this. Every song here gives off the impression of a band having complete and utter fun with their instruments, and if you can get past the fact that it is more of a pop album than it is strictly Heavy Metal, you will come to love this album a lot. There are heavier moment here however. The aptly titled 'Heavy metal The Black and Silver ' focusses fully on each guitarist's efforts, and it certainly works well.
The solos rip through each minute of the song, the riffs accompany the powerful lyrics, and some guitar licks even contribute to the effectual vocals of Eric Bloom. Even on the stunning title track, wherein Bloom seems to enjoy every one of Patti Smith's lyrics, solos serve as a fitting background to the keyboards and synthesisers contained within.
As mentioned before, many will want this album to be heavier than it actually is, but you can't blame the band for wanting to take their mysterious sounds and excellent lyrics to the next level.
