The Fire Next Time- Sound Of A Threat CD. The Fire Next Time formed out of a need to fill a void in Goleta, California where three of the four members resided at the time. They came together with an array of musical diversity, Andres Fraire (Call and Response) brought in some clever time signature drumming, loud and crashy similar to Sleepy Time Trio. Alex Pasternak's heavily influenced Shotmaker rhythms came through well in collaboration with Steve Aoki's interests in forming the heavy handed sound that comes out of The Fire Next Time. This is most definitely rock and this is most definitely hardcore.
