Bonfire


The Rocker

Recommended Posts

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

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.

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.

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

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

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM
