The Safety Fire - Mouth of Swords

There’s been alot of build-up to the forthcoming album from The Safety Fire — we’ve heard a fair chunk of the record in the form of videos, teasers and just stand-alone audio streams, but that hasn’t dampened my excitement for the release of this full album stream, which was posted to the band’s Facebook page earlier today:

I’ve only managed to hear it in full once, as of writing this post, but I think it’s fair to say this is a huge step up from their debut Grind The Ocean — every little detail here is refined; the riffs are sharper, the drumming more flashy and McWeeney’s vocals sound better than ever. Also, be on the look out for a guest appearance from Tommy Rogers of Between The Buried And Me on the brilliantly titled ‘Beware The Leopard (Jagwar)‘ at around 17 minutes, it shifts the atmosphere of the track almost immediately. Definitely a year-end list contender.
