UK / US progressive heavy metal band ALCHEMY FIRE have released a new video for the song "Native Son" from their self-titled debut album.

Alchemy Fire’s self-titled album was released during Spring 2023 via US record label QUMRAN Records on CD and 160 gram stunning deep purple vinyl.

Alchemy Fire vocalist David Reed Watson comments:

Native Son is our second video from our album "Alchemy Fire". I've always had an affinity towards the Native American culture. It's shameful that we pretend their suppression isn't happening anymore. As I was driving recently through northern Arizona on my way to Las Vegas, seeing the mobile homes with wooden planks over what used to be windows made me cry. Seeing signs saying, 'Please don't feed the homeless' like they aren't even human reminds me how cruel we humans can be. In the Chorus, "I am a Native Son, Apache to Wompanoag..." The Wompanoag tribe is on Cape Cod where I used to live. They are beautiful people.

Alchemy Fire is a progressive heavy metal band founded in 2018 by Nottingham UK based lead guitarist and songwriter, Paul Wright. With its members located in the UK and USA, this international band attributes influences such as Iron Maiden, Helloween, Queensryche and Judas Priest to name a few.

Through an acquaintance, Paul Wright was introduced to Tom Schofield. This introduction led to the collaboration and recording of guitar and drum scratch tracks. David Reed Watson accepted the invitation as vocalist and together with Paul Wright worked on lyrics and harmonies for this upcoming album.

Using guest musicians for bass and keyboard, the band’s album was recorded at Monster Trax Studio in Newark/Nottingham UK by accomplished musician/guitarist, Composer and Producer Misha Nikolic (Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash). Grammy nominated, multi-platinum Producer and Mixer, Ulrich Wild, well-known for his work with bands such as Dethklok, Pantera, Static-X, White Zombie, Deftones and Breaking Benjamin, mixed and recorded the album at his LA studio, The Wilderness. Mastering was done by NYC based Grammy winning and multi-platinum awarded Mastering Engineer, Alex Psaroudakis.

With the musical precision and talent of the band, along with the high-level engineering and production backgrounds involved, the album will hit you with a heavy metal wall of sound containing progressive elements. Soaring vocals and harmonies with atmospheric keyboards are backed by thunderous drumming and heavy bass tones to give the listener a balanced mix of fast to mid-paced guitar shredding songs.
