More Proof of the ’90s Industrial Metal Revival: Letters From the Fire’s New Banger “Comfort You”


Hogwasche, Sparrow, the surprisingly good new(ish) Powerman 5000 single, the entire synthwave genre, the goth culture resurgence… it’s HAPPENING people, I’m telling you. The ’90s industrial metal revival is nigh! Shit, it’s already here.

The latest nostalgic delight to come across my desk: Letters From the Fire, who just released a video for the bangin’ track “Comfort You” (with a songwriting assist from John 5). The pulsating beats, the blips and bloops, the buzzsaw guitars, the distorted vocals, the undeniable, gigantic hook… it’s all fucking here. Not the least of which is the look: friend-o-MetalSucks Eli thinks the band members need “more black boots and chains,” and I get what he’s saying, but I think their aesthetic works just fine. Especially when you consider the dynamic that lead vocalist Nina Bergman’s actual ballet moves bring to the picture (she’s a former ballerina in Moscow’s world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet). It’s kinda like Republica but more modern (and better).

This song and video are basically perfect for 2018 and I genuinely cannot wait to hear more from Letters From the Fire. Their self-titled sophomore album will come out on June 15th.
