Feels like there's a Bonfire album every year. Not that I'm complaining.

I'm more of a fan of Claus Lessmann. I'm ready for something new from him.

Have not given the new singer a chance yet.

Cheesy album cover, cheesy album title, cheesy first single

The trifecta of cheese!

Not exactly their best work but not completely awful either.  Here's hoping there's 8 or 9 tracks on the new album that are better.

I'm more with Mafisen and Tabe on this one. Truth is, with better lyrics that would be a pretty killer hard rock tune. Even with those lyrics, it's still a keeper to me. 

As much as I love Lessman and Bonfire with him in it, I would openly admit that the last few Bonfire albums without him have been far, far better than the last few Bonfire albums with him.

Listening to the album now. Off to a good start with h Gotta Get Away. To be updated. 

Have to say I really like it. Could do without the intro and the instrumental interludes, but this album is the best of the Stahl era for me. Nothing new being invented, but it rocks plenty and the slower stuff is good too.  

5 out of 6.

Bonfire had dropped off my radar the past decade (someone mentioned an album a year!!!).   This samples I've heard on the forth coming album have drawn my attention once again and hopefully, this is a refreshing new face for the band's music.    Definitely going to grab a copy of the new one

Like I said above, in my opinion their last few albums have been a lot better than the last few they recorded with Lessman. A lot of similar bands like Jaded Heart (only really recently- they have plenty of very good post-Borman albums) , Dynazty, Shakra, Crystal Ball etc. all hold no interest at all to me anymore, but Bonfire seem to be keeping the dream alive to a degree. It's not startling stuff, but I heard this yesterday and it sounds like another good slab of no nonsense melodic heavy rock. Good stuff.

I'd agree with those thoughts.  Similar to the last album they've included a few tracks that lean a little more to the melodic metal side of the spectrum.  Other than some so-so lyrical content the album is solid throughout.  My initial favorites are Gotta Get Away, Ride the Blade, and Breaking Out.

Liking this more and more. Finding myself listening to it all the way through, even the intro and interludes. 

It's a top album.

Dabbled with it, and so far comes off as one of those albums where it's a gonna take some time and repeated listens to get into.

    • Yeah, that's great stuff. I have all the "Pop Evil" albums and I like everything I've heard (Boss's Daughter is one of my favourite ever songs), but it's all about finding the time to get into them. You seem to be the resident "Pop Evil" expert, so hit me with five tracks that will blow me away!  BTW, I've posted this clip before and I think you may have as well  but it never gets old.    
    • Here's two great, very iconic old school Aussie tracks that I have a connection with. My first job when leaving school at 16 was as a storeman for a stationery company. The other storeman was a guy named Robert "Huk" Treloar. He was a drummer and member of "Blackfeather" in 1978. This track from 1972 is their only hit. I remember him telling me, when they used to play clubs that this track was on the setlist about four times. He was also a member of "The Little Heroes" in 1982. That's actually him playing drums on the single. Again, as with Tommy Vucur from "Vanishing Point" who is a commercial painter that I work with now, it amazes me how these guys go back to being "normal people" and how hard it is to actually "make it" in the industry.      
    • This one's for Cody. Another reason for Alisson Langdon's perfection.    
    • yep that was a really good album but truth be told I would have preferred it as a full Degreed album - didn't really suit Ted's vocals for me 
    • Took a while to get good, but I like the new song too. Apparently I liked the first two as well, so fingers crossed it's a good album.  As for number of tracks, I'll take 10 over more any day of the week, unless it's one of my absolute favourite bands in a groove where they can do no wrong. BFT are certainly not that, so 10 is good for me. Hope they nail them all. 
    • Seen the new ones? fucking hilarious.    
    • I think Night Drive is awesome sounds like an end of credits track from an 80’s James Bond movie. Sounds like LeBrock which is great to my ears.   I’ve loved all three tracks so far. 
    • Personally I don't eat anything that isn't well cooked and this is a good reason to continue that habit! https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/doctors-remove-live-worm-from-woman-s-tonsil-1.5023719
