For me, the best and most "Bonfire" sounding song since Claus left.

Still don't like 'em. Claus or no Bonfire.

The new tune is pretty good, and although I've enjoyed some songs from their last few albums it is hard thinking of the band as Bonfire still, without Claus on vocals

Very similar to 'Praying for a miracle' in places, which was an absolute monster song from their last album. 

I can understand the Claus argument, but let's lay down the facts. Their last album was the best Bonfire has sounded for a long time. Probably since 'Fuel to the flames.' And this new song sounds pretty great too. Alternatively, Lessman's last album with Phantom 5 was pretty standard stuff. 

I'm just a fan of good music, and if Bonfire with this kid on vocals are releasing good music, I'm on board. 

They're churning it out quick, hey? A new album in April. When was the last one released? Less than a year ago, or just over? Quick turnaround. Which isn't a bad thing if the product is good.

I'm a Bonfire fan, and agree good music is good music. I will buy/listen to it if good, but I think Bonfire has put out some really good albums from the last 2 decades.

Absolutely agree with everything Geoff said. 

Really liked their last album and this song is very good too. 

The last album was their best in ages and this promises to be more of the same.

I've been listening to the new album for a few weeks, and I gotta say, it's darned good. The vocals will never be what Bonfire was, but in and of itself it's a very enjoyable listen, IMO.

Very old school Helloween.

I was thinking along those same lines, especially when the singer belts out those opening shouts.  Solid tune, but had I heard it on the radio I'd never guess it was Bonfire.

If someone asked me to sell this album to them, I'd say this:

Sounds like a leftover Jack Ponti song... and one of his few good ones too, lol. Killer tune.

decent tune. very predictable but solid

Unfortunately the other song in this thread is every I detest about Euro rock. lots of silly screaming, double kick and silly lyrics :(

I couldn't find it on Youtube, but if you can track down the track "On the Wings of an Angel", you should check it out. It screams vintage Fair Warning to me. Love it!

It's not bad but I wish it wasn't called Bonfire.

Is Temple of Lies on the album?

If so this is my take on the 3 songs I've heard -

Crazy over you - GOOD

Stand or Fall - OK

Temple of Lies - SHIT

Wow there's a massive swing in quality on this from really great to pretty damned terrible.

Feed the Fire (like the bonfire) lol - I nearly spat my coffee out when I read that title. hilarious. The song is awful too.

I gave their new release a listen today.   For me, it is a little less consistent than their last album.  The title track , "Temple of Lies", is probably the heaviest song they've recorded, but I preferred the more melodic numbers.  My favorites are "On the Wings of an Angel", " Love the Way You Hate Me", "I'll Never Be Loved By You" and "Crazy Over You" .

Yeah, I'm liking the album but I also think it's not as good as the last one. Good, solid stuff, though.

those 4 are basically all you need to hear. not an album I'll be returning to much if ever
