I am a fan of Oi! and Oi!-influenced punk rock, and this record is one of the best Christian Oi!-punk records I’ve heard in a while. With their in your face lyrics about their faith, Brazil’s Living Fire are not pulling any punches on this record. Lyrically and musically it’s an onslaught of fast and loud punk rock that could be played in a youth group or in a pub.
One of the highlights of this record is “J.C.H.C.,” a hardcore Oi! song plays like a throwback to the heyday of the Christian hardcore punk scene that will have you slam dancing and singing a long where ever you are. “Skinheads 4 Christ” will be the new anthem of all believing skinheads soon enough, with it’s great lead riff and catchy lyrics this song will have you singing out loud with one fist in the air.
But the standout track is “Desire of The Deer,” a killer Oi! sing-a-long track that is reminiscent of the great Oi! bands like Booze and Glory and Cockney Rejects. Dead to Sin is a fun and catchy barrage of songs that you will want to hear again and again. I highly recommend this record to fans of Flatfoot 56 and the Oi!-punk sound.
