After a near four-year hiatus, Virginia quintet Spitfire have returned to thrill longtime fans and to introduce a new audience to their aural insanity. Self-Help marks a dramatic improvement in the bands style and sound. Goodfellow. 2006.

"Self-Help" came as a surprise for me. Having been a fan of Spitfire since their original self made EP, I had really anticipated each of their releases. Their Tooth and Nail release (Dead Next Door) offered initial pleasure, but didn't have lasting power. After they made the album, Spitfire seemingly disappeared into obscurity. On the opposite of "Dead Next Door", "Self-Help" is a no frills, to the point hardcore album that doesn't disappoint on any level and continues to get better with each listen.

While the message of the lyrics seem cryptic, they are nonetheless engaging. Lines such as "I feel my retinas burning, I feel my loins yearning, for us to be together" extend the album beyond any trite break up lyric found in most "scene" bands today. What stands out the most however is the fantastic music. The guitar work is creative and precise. Technical lines will integrate a toned feedback as part of a riff, creating songs that are familiar yet unique. The screaming is as intense as ever, and the drummer is always on point. The intensity of the music mixed with obvious metal influences reminds me of early Converge. To their benefit, songs are short, and they start at the point - no self conscious/overlong intros, or laborious experimental tracks. Everything on "Self Help" serves a purpose and heads in a specific direction.

I am baffled as to why this band isn't more popular. Perhaps "Spitfire" is too mature for much of the emo crowd, but for those willing to give them a try, there is a great sonic reward.
