Album of the month

Some things never changes, amongst them you can find Bonfire ! This Hard-Rock band has been around from as long as I can remember, and to tell you the truth I'm pretty glad about that. This new album is a pure jewel of the genre, it's emotion packed rockin' Hard-Rock that will blow your mind cells away and leave you begging for more. What a slap my friends !!!

The previous album was already a nice one, but this time Bonfire are striking back with style ! This one immediately rejoins their collection as one of the best album they did (with Fireworks and Point Blank). Songs like Strike Back for example, which reminds me a lot one of their old song (You're Back from the Point Blank album) is one of the best Hard-Rock song I've heard in the last 10 years ! Its riff will certainly produce a huge pain in your neck as for the chorus melody, your ears simply won't believe it and don't even get me started on the exceptional guitar solo of this song ! But that's only one example, the album is filled with only good to excellent songs, from fast to mid-tempo or standard Bonfire ballads, everything being delivered with a top production and with this little touch of attitude that makes me love them so much.

This new album is for all the fans who love good old Hard-Rock with good riffs and solos, great vocals and who like me love to headbang crazy while you drive (don't do it though, it's very dangerous believe me :) ). Impressive, the best of it's kind since last year Axxis' Back To The Kingdom. Keep on going guys !
