Exa – Fuel for Fire Song Review

Today we are featuring another remarkable thrash metal band; Exa, from Berlin, Germany. We have reviewed their badass song; Fuel for Fire, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Exa is another promising 90s thrash metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about a month ago with this song; Fuel for Fire, off from their latest single with the same title, which was released in 2019. When I heard this song for the first time I realized how much I missed listening to old fashioned stuff like this. Early Metallica period, Megadeth, Exodus, Machine Head, Slayer and many other bands like them were storming the world with their irresistible energy just like on this example here. I strongly recommend you to check it out while reading the rest of the article.

Fuel for Fire is a classic thrash metal song structured almost in the same way Metallica was doing back in Ride the Lightning era. I thought about Kill’Em All, And Justice for All and Master of Puppets albums, yet Fuel For Fire has more in common with the Ride the Lightning period. The structure is progressive in its own way. Nothing is too simple yet easy-going at the same time. We all know that this music is special with its pure energy and makes a huge difference when performed live. As a musician myself, this is the only music style I love playing the most on stage and I am sure these German gentlemen feel the same way. As we can also see in their music video, they are not hiding their mighty Metallica influence on their music. Some people are strongly against these things but I don’t really care as long as the music feels good. Fuel for Fire sounded fresh enough to me to decide to feature and recommending them here on Metalhead Community. I know I won’t be the only one who’ll enjoy and bang their head on this badass song after publishing this article here.


Technically Fuel for Fire has top class standards. Hands down. This is one of the few greatest and also natural sounding metal songs I have listened to lately. Believe me, fellas, this is very crucial. The world is getting more and more digital every day such as the music and the production industry. We have to hold onto everything that belongs to us, in my opinion. And this song is quite a good example of it. No bullshit, no digitals, pure thrash metal. And I fuckin’ loved it. I don’t know who was their producer on this recording but he has done a fantastic job, gave life to a remarkable song. Time to time I come across old fashioned thrash metal music like this and I still enjoy listening to it just like the first times. This means only one thing to me that this music style doesn’t have an expiration date at all!

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Exa. They are on the right track and have a lot in common with most of the metalheads in this world. I believe once they start making periodical releases and performing good on stage, it’ll be impossible to stop them. Like I said earlier, it is all about working hard, making regular releases and performing great on stage. And I can see that these German fellas have the right spirit for the job!
