OUTLINE - Fire Whiplash CD
Although a brand-new name, OUTLINE is actually a continuation of speed metal cult DEMONA.
Although a brand-new name, OUTLINE is actually a continuation of speed metal cult DEMONA. Feeling a name-change was necessary to refresh her outlook, mastermind vocalist/guitarist Tanza Speed joined up with HAMMR mainman J. Hammer, and together they released the Demo 1: Fire Whiplash last October via HELLS HEADBANGERS. That debut demo quickly sold out, and it was easy to hear why: OUTLINE continue all the same timeless intensity which endeared DEMONA to legions worldwide while also revealing a newer, more traditional side.
With the stage thus set, OUTLINE now unleash their debut album, fittingly titled Fire Whiplash. If their debut demo presented the band in their rawest state, then Fire Whiplash is the sound of OUTLINE firing on all cylinders, retaining that raw intensity while bolstering the production considerably, and even suggesting a slightly more punkish take on their trademark speed metal. Recorded by MIDNIGHT's Commandor Vanik at his Mercenary Studios and mastering by Toxic Holocaust's Joel Grind, Fire Whiplash positively explodes with an infectiousness that's simply impossible to deny. It comprises all the songs of the demo of the same name and rounds 'em out with three more new ones, but all given a crushing clarity that ably highlights their anthemic nature. Basically, if you loved DEMONA, you'll love OUTLINE just as much - if not more!
