Bonfire – Fistful of Fire

This new album is the fourth with Stahl as the frontman, if you include the mastodon yet quite unnecessary double covers album Legends (2018) and with that it really feels like Bonfire has finally found themselves at ease. As an outsider, it’s impossible to not think of Lessmann as THE voice of Bonfire, even still, but since Stahl’s voice is quite similar to Lessmann’s – and no, I’m not saying he’s a clone – it’s way easier to get a Bonfire vibe out the band. That was never the case with Reece at all. Personally, my relationship with Bonfire had faded after the release of the magnificent Knock Out (1991) even though there was some pretty good releases after that. Stahl’s debut Byte The Bullet (2017) wasn’t perfect but it was a good record that showed lots of potential and 2018’s Temple Of Lies was a surprisingly vital album, full of damn good songs and Bonfire’s best effort since Knock Out. This of course brought hope that they would deliver the goods this time as well.
