Fire For Effect

Death metal band from New York City (US), notably featuring founder & guitarist Gio Geraca (ex-Malevolent Creation), vocalist Bret Hoffman (ex-Malevolent Creation) and drummer Derek Roddy (ex-Hate Eternal, ex-Nile).

FIRE FOR EFFECT came to life in 2016 and found its resting place at Agonia Records two years later, after playing several gigs and releasing their first 3-song demo "Into The Breach". The band's origin is undeniably tied with Malevolent Creation - featuring the latter's two key, currently ex-members. Originally launched as guitarist's Gio Garcia's solo project, events took an unexpected turn when singer Brett Hofmann stepped in, and the duo exited their mother band, Malevolent Creation, for good. Shortly later they were briefly joined by bassist Tony Choy of progressive death metal icons Atheist and Cyinc, and Suffocation's founding drummer Mike Smith. In 2018 Smith was replaced by another gifted drummer, Derek Roddy (previously of Hate Eternal). Bassist Paul Mcbride (Ends) completes the band's line-up. FIRE FOR EFFECT's debut album is currently being worked on in studio and is planned for late 2018.

Line-up: 
Gio Geraca - guitars
Bret Hoffman - vocals  
Derek Roddy - drums
Paul Mcbride - bass
