Melodic post-rockers the Holy Fire followed up their independent 2004 debut EP with another EP, this time for the Southern California indie imprint The Militia Group. Produced by Flaming Lip Michael Ivins, In the Name of the World is tightly wound, emotive, and succinct in its commercial aspirations without sacrificing any of the Detroit collective''s signature volatility. Ivins, a bass player by trade, has fortified the songs'' foundations in a way that allows each track to succeed on both a musical and muscular level, allowing standout cuts like "Bombs in the Distance" and "Raised on Planes" the room to pound away at the skull before engaging the brain. Vocalist/guitarist Sean Hoen channels everyone from Jeremy Enigk to Robin Zander, giving a lyric like "Kiss me right here with your mouth/All sick from smoke and beer" a necessary dose of desperation and transcendence, the latter of which the Holy Fire seemed destined to achieve." All Music Guide, 2007.
The Holy Fire takes the best things about rock and leaves out the watered down drivel that poulltes most of the radio waves. With the passion of U2 and the artistic sense of Interpol, The Holy Fire has a Midwestern penchant for writing heart-on-sleeve music that sells itself every time.
"In the name of the world" was produced by Michael Ivins of the Flaming Lips.
