MP3: Spanish Fly by Deathly Fighter

This is what Doug wrote about Deathly Fighter:

Of all the bands on the current Columbus landscape, Deathly Fighter are the most difficult to pin down. Their first show sounded like an SPK groove on repeat. It was a fairly well-received set considering the number of ideas brought forth (1). Their next show was more distorted and antagonistic, clearing the room at Bourbon St. in about ten minutes. Their recordings explore an assortment of black and white sounds from early Hardcore to Industrial, classic Dub to Dubstep to House, without ever fully committing to a single genre. And then there’s the Deathly Fighter aesthetic, which may be more clearly defined than the music itself, with themes of sadomasochism, violence, cassette culture and DIY appearing in their graphic design and general presence. (continued)

Mike Carney, the public face of the band, has released several demos via our message board. I wanted to highlight this one, “Spanish Fly”, which also features Ahmed from Sinkane on drums.

The band has a full length album coming out next year, but it is not to be discussed in public until the time is right.
