Love it! I was too big of a fan of the last 2 albums. Hopefully the new stuff will sound like the Charade stuff

Maybe after the other asshats in JH fucked him over and took HIS band and name out from under him, he doesn't trust too many people

BONFIRE Decide On New Vocalist; Michael Bormann Out

Because of the sudden departure and separation from David Reece after two very successful charting CDs GLÖRIOUS & the double album PEARLS the place of the lead vocalist and Frontman of BONFIRE became vacant.

 

Originally BONFIRE found a new shouter in Michael Bormann, however, prior obligations kept him from starting his duties with Bonfire until mid-October 2016.

As so-called "transition singer" ALEXX STEEL (MASTERS OF DISGUISE, ROXXCALIBUR) spontaneously offered his help so BONFIRE where able to play the agreed 16 summer events .

 

ALEXX STAHL uses this time and concerts in order to sing himself into the hearts of the fans and the band members.

 

That he is a great musician, BONFIRE knew, but that it would also function as human friendly and makes so much fun to work with him to act and to travel, that was already a pleasant surprise.Alexx is a real gentleman!

Therefore, the musicians around band founder HANS ZILLER decided to undertake Alexx permanently as the new Bonfire singer.

 

Our big thank you goes to Michael Bormann - which is certainly an absolute exceptional singer , and this he has been proved for years in various projects - for his willingness to enter into BONFIRE and also for his understanding to our final decision and wish him for his future musical path only the very best. And we all mean that honestly !!!!!

The new BONFIRE - STUDIO ALBUM appears in the March / April 2017

Don't know why you'd say that, absolutely none of his post-JH lyrics suggest anything like that. ;)

 

Anyway, this is really disappointing only seeing all this today. For me, Bormann would be a good (and German) fit for the band, as well as having a history with the band too. What a shame. Impatient fucks. ;)

 

I assume the new guy will be out in a couple of weeks anyway... I just hope there is still opportunity for Bormann to slot back in. Before he leaves and Tony Harnell becomes the new singer for Bonfire... before he then leaves so Jeff Scott Soto can be their vocalist. Before David Reece comes back. And then finally Lessman returns. Before Reece comes back...

This just in: I'm the new singer in Bonfire.

 

...never mind, I just quit. I accepted an offer to be the new bassist in Bobby Blotzer's Ratt instead.

 

...oh wait, nevermind again, I just quit that too.

Who really cares anymore about Bonfire?

 

Especially now?

 

I would definitely care about Bonfire with Bormann in the band. Both have been pottering around for a while now, but together I feel like that could have been something really worthwhile. Something close to prime time Jaded Heart, even? It's shame it didn't work out and to be honest, I'm surprised Ziller isn't more intelligent than that... using "Oh, we can't possibly wait until October - we have sooo much to do!" as an excuse to miss out on a highly reputable singer and presence that could legitimately fix what has become a bit of a joke of a band. Stupid decision.

For me Glorious was more like Atrocious yet I still thought Phantom 5 was enjoyable.

As for Charade I was not that impressed.

Michael Bormann vocals are great but sometimes I think it don't always fit right.

I wish he would do something closer to old Bon Jovi / Blue Tears style

As for the new vocals I'll have to wait and see.

Right now I guess I'm sticking with Phantom 5 or whatever Claus Lessmann puts out.

I like the Phantom 5 album, and so much better than Glorious for me anyway.

Phantom 5 seems to be another one I missed completely. I wonder if it also came out while I was Indonesia last year...

Yeah, that's what I mean. I was active in the thread basically right up until it was released, which suggests to me I was away when it was released and the discussion was long dead by the time I returned to the forum. The Roth Brock was another one I totally missed, and Tempt. A few releases in a block last year that I missed and need to catch up on.

Yeah, given it a couple of spins at the end of last week and it's nice. Good solid album which I all but missed entirely after the initial commentary early on.

    • New single 'April Rain' from the album 'Naked Soul'. And ADV ruining everything... From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce T3nors, a very special new AOR project. Two of America’s greatest AOR singers, Robbie LaBlanc and Toby Hitchock join forces with one of Sweden’s finest AOR singers, Kent Hilli to form the vocali trio of T3nors. These absolutely outstanding vocalists have come together on one glorious melodic rock album, "Naked Soul", which will be released on February 10, 2023.  The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years as Frontiers has been wanting to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. With the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, everyone's availability, for better or for worse, became more flexible and the idea started to become reality.  Pairing Robbie, Toby, and Kent together seemed an ideal team up and all three were enthusiastic about the idea when approached to participate. The rest, as they say, is history. Kent Hilli is the newest of the three singers on the scene, but has quickly made an impact with the albums he has released with his main band Perfect Plan, as well as being the new frontman for GIANT, solo material, and guest appearances with Restless Spirits, the melodic rock project from Lords Of Black guitarist Tony Hernando.  Toby Hitchcock is an American singer known for his solo albums as well as his work with the esteemed melodic rock genius Jim Peterik in Pride Of Lions. Robbie LaBlanc is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Blanc Faces, Find Me, a project with The Murder Of My Sweet drummer/producer Daniel Flores, East Temple Avenue, and more.  If you are a lover of all things AOR, then T3nors' debut album, "Naked Soul" is a can't miss release!   Tracklisting:1.

    • Very sad news. She had a lovely voice. I absolutely love both 'Rumours' and 'Tango In The Night'...both part of my musical journey. 
    • Superb album...one of the best pure Westcoast releases this year. Love the Chaka Khan cover of 'Ain't Nobody' as well. Great stuff
    • Not perfect by a long way, but the album a hell of a lot better than some in the other stuff Frontiers put out on a regular basis
    • Very nice...Move out of the way ADV, Dennis is back .....very solid band with The Greatest Wonder especially being absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to this one a lot
    • I I know I'm way behind the 8 ball here as I had never paid attention to these guys either but just clicked on the Daylight video myself and dug it.  Found my way to this thread and digging some of these other tunes too.  I think the different kind of sound is appealing to me a bit at the moment.  It's almost like if Axel Rose were fronting Tora Tora or something.   Gonna have to give the album a listen to see if it sticks but initially Daylight, Wall Said To Call and Feel Alright are sounding interesting to me from just watching the videos above.  Will have to check the album out. 
    • I used to love this band so much on their first 3 albums. Who could have guessed it would end up with this complete shit show. Bands should NOT air their dirty laundry in public
    • Def Leppard/ Magnum - St. Albans City Hall  April 5th 1980 Saxon - St. Albans City Hall  May 2nd 1980  
    • Just clicked on this to check it out as I had never heard of this band....Not too bad!  Kinda reminds me musically of early Tora Tora but I hear some Axel Rose in those vocals. I might have to check this album out to see if anything else grabs me on it.      
    • Some choice picks there. That VHS Collection album I only heard it a month or so ago, but it's really good.
