So this is where Bill Steer ended up after Carcass broke up. Firebird is a million miles away from Steer's previous bands, insteading opting for a bluesy, stoner rock groove that has often often been likened to Cream. Not as heavy as many of the stoner bands currently making the rounds, Firebird is nonetheless an interesting group.
