The combination of toughness and great melodies suites Bonfire perfectly. The German Hard Rock Legends prove this with their newest studio album “Fistful Of Fire”, which again has all trademarks typical to Bonfire: charismatic vocals, catchy riffs and hooks and driving grooves!
“Fistful Of Fire” is definitely one of the toughest Bonfire albums ever. “This development already became apparent the last time around,” explains guitarist and founding member Hans Ziller. “However, this time our approach was even more focused and consistent. I’ve always been the tough guy in Bonfire but haven’t always been able to implement my ideas the way I wanted. But since our tour with Judas Priest, we’ve known that toughness in combination with great melodies suits Bonfire perfectly.”
“Fistful Of Fire” features this very mix: throughout 11 songs (plus three intros) the band fires on all cylinders. “Unlike previous Bonfire vocalists, Alexx oozes so much energy that you may occasionally have to hold him back rather than motivate him.”
Everything comes together perfectly on “Fistful Of Fire”, which was recorded in collaboration with sound engineer Tom M ller at Ingolstadt’s Flatliners Recording Studios again: the charismatic vocals, the catchy riffs and hooks courtesy of guitarists Ziller and Frank Pan , the rich bass sound provided by their American colleague Ronnie Parkes and the driving grooves contributed by new addition Andr Hilgers (ex-Rage, Axxis), who has completed the line-up for a number of months. “This team delivers without mercy and has turned into a really tight unit,” Ziller enthuses.
