In the Pit With Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire
Check out my review of "Ultimate Songs From the Pit" over on


Bottom of the Pit? No, the Top of the pit at lest!
Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire are a chiptune rock band. That means that they combine rock with the bips and boops from video game sounds. They also have songs that are inspired by games, but that is not their whole style. The music on this album is full of energy and passion. My personal favorite songs are "Tip Eht Fo Mottob" and "Area Dolls Guy". Though not on this album they also have the best cover of "Sonny Came Home" sung by a man, and the best rock covers of "Chinese Ninja Warrior" and "True Faith". The music of this band will cover eclectic styles and range, and Shael Riley is an impressive vocalist with a good range and a good deal of experience singing and even rapping. Full Seal of Approval.
