FIRE FOR EFFECT Feat. Former MALEVOLENT CREATION Members: Deal With AGONIA RECORDS Announced

FIRE FOR EFFECT, the new death metal band featuring guitarist Gio Geraca (ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION), vocalist Bret Hoffmann (ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION) and drummer Derek Roddy (ex-HATE ETERNAL, NILE), has signed a deal with Agonia Records.

Despite being formed merely two years ago, FIRE FOR EFFECT is not short on experience or talent. With its members drawing from over 25 years of music careers in famed death metal bands, the expectations for FIRE FOR EFFECT's debut album — which is currently being worked on — are high.

FIRE FOR EFFECT found its resting place at Agonia Records after playing several gigs, releasing their first three-song demo "Into The Breach", and reviewing several other record deal offers. The band's origin is undeniably tied with MALEVOLENT CREATION, featuring the latter's two key former members. Originally launched as Garcia's solo project, events took an unexpected turn when singer Bret Hoffmann stepped in, and the duo exited their mother band, MALEVOLENT CREATION, for good. A short time later, they were briefly joined by bassist Tony Choy of progressive death metal icons ATHEIST and CYNIC, and SUFFOCATION's founding drummer Mike Smith. In 2018, Smith was replaced by another gifted drummer, Roddy. Bassist Paul Mcbride (ENDS) completes the band's lineup.

FIRE FOR EFFECT's debut album is planned for late 2018.
