BONFIRE release their new album ‘Temple Of Lies’ on 13th April on AFM Records
A quick analysis of the album as a whole ticks all of the boxes that we would hope for from a Bonfire release. Those bemoaning the departure of Lessmanm who went on to form Phantom 5 need not worry with this release as Stahl is a more than adequate replacement.

With such a storied career in the AOR hard rock world, it isn’t surprising that Lessman rebounded so quickly
After the successful release of 2015’s Glörious, Bavarian hard rock legends BONFIRE are proving they still have a great future to come – this year, the band celebrates 30 years on stage
For a band that will admit they’ve never made it as big as they might have done, “but we did get this close….” says Danny Vaughn, they have amassed a solid following that has managed to give them a 25 year career and allowed them to celebrate the wonderful milestone for the release of their debut album.
These guys gave a sterling rock and roll performance tonight and I was suitable impressed with Mr. Hans Ziller on lead guitar, who’s skills on the axe out shone Claus’s jokes. Keep the Bonfire burning guys!

Personally I think it is a fantastic collection and will likely be the closest I get to experiencing them live. It also has me pumped for their new album and has me chomping at the bit to pull out their catalog and reacquaint myself with some old friends.
