Previously on October 20, 2016, Phoenix In Flames announced via Facebook that their gig at the Rock Cafe Le Stage in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada on October 29th would be their last with their current line-up and that they had a major announcement that they would make.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Phoenix In Flames‘ last EP Howling For Power which was released back on August 1, 2014: “A heavy blues based band — that is the best way for me to describe Montreal based Phoenix In Flames on their second EP Howling For Power. Once I got over the fact (but still don’t want to accept it) that none of the songs pick up much speed from the cool guitar and bass riffs that sometimes open them, I was able to appreciate and find some good moments on Howling For Power.”
With respect to Phoenix In Flames‘ previous EP Rise From The Ashes released in early 2013, Sleaze Roxx stated in its review: “Had someone given me Rise From The Ashes to listen to without letting me know who the band was, I would have never been able to guess that it was the same group that would later release Howling For Power. First of all, Phoenix In Flames had a member playing keyboards (Mike DaniHell’s, who apparently left the band to study cooking), and secondly Black is actually singing on Rise From The Ashes — albeit with a French accent at times — compared to the “growls” that he often let out on the follow-up. Finally, Rise From The Ashes has better overall songwriting and a retro feel to it, akin to the great ’70s hard rock and metal records that had full-time keyboardists to complement the sound.”
