Light Yourself On Fire is a fine example of Florida's consistent tendency for innovative heavy music. Years prior to the world of "metalcore" (or even the very word), the members of L.Y.O.F. paid their dues in Omega Man and Reversal Of Man, merging elements of raging metal with a strong foundation in hardcore punk. Not crossover thrash exactly, but also unlike any of the "metal" or "hardcore" bands at the time. These bands lived amongst the underappreciated innovators of what would eventually become a very popular and widespread sound.
