Profile Not to be confused with the US band. Firehouse is an Italian band from Milan formed in 1986 from the ashes of Macid an hard rock/prog band with some punk influences, by the Caruso brothers with two albums to active while they recorded a demo-split with a Swiss band (Sensation White) that yielded a contract to record an album. Their first album released in 1988 and contains excellent songs defined as progressive hard and despite good review finds no particular response.

“Labyrinth” is the second band’s album released in 1994 came out from Arexong Records contains the logical continuation of the sound of the period with a wink of an eye on the prog metal. The great rockin’ that open the album “I Need the Fire” is one of best tunes of the record with exceptional guitar riffs and a catchy chorus. The hearfelt ballad “In my Eyes” is another gem as the poweful “Striking”, a song that will blow you with it’s dynamic and the great chorus and last but not least is the catchy “Fly by Night”. It’s not only the remarkable chorus but also the way that song performed. The band split up in 1995 and the brothers Caruso formed “Arachnes” left behind their hard rock style and brand a new musical-concept with lots of different influences and more oriented to the virtuoso-approach of guitars and arrangements.
