CD review BONAFIDE "Flames"

Veröffentlicht am 22. Februar 2017 von Markus W. in Bonafide, Rock, Hardrock, News, CD Review

(7/10) Bonafide is the brain child of singer/guitarist Pontus Snibb. It was in 2006 when he laid the foundation of the band that released several records up to date. Live gigs and a couple of festival shows at Sweden Rock familiarized the rock fans with Bonafide and the four-piece band attracted more attention. As we speak Bonafide’s next studio album sits in the starting blocks, ready to run.

What can the listener expect from the new longplayer? A new sound? No. A revolution in music? No. Good stuff? Absolutely.

The story of rock doesn't need to be rewritten due to Bonafide's new longplayer "Flames". However, the record is definitely hot. Bonafide keeps the hardrock fire burning, a flame that was ignited by bands like AC/DC many decades ago. It's the Australian legends that influenced songs like the opener "Back in Flames" and the great "Bottle of Jack". Next to Angus & Co it was also Aerosmith and Kiss that obviously belongs to Bonadide's favorites, at least you could get this idea while listening to songs like "Power Down" and "Written in Stone".

"Flames" is a grooving hardrock longplayer that includes solid songs. In case you're looking for a cool party soundtrack - these nine songs will do the job.





  1. Back in Flames
  2. Smoke & Fire
  3. Power Down
  4. Bottle of Jack
  5. Written in Stone
  6. Like it Now
  7. Keep a Safe Distance
  8. Gotta Go
  9. Flipside Groovin’
  10. Under Your Spell

The last three albums of Bonafide have been incredible and now our Swedish Rock n Roll Rebels have taken Ultimate Rebel, Bombo and Denim Devils and put into a new groovy gatefold aptly named “Treble Charged".

There will only be 500 copies of this prestigous set produced and it is availble now, on pre order from the Off Yer Rocka Virtual Store as well as all favourite outlets like Amazon & HMV.

Bonafide Head Honcho Pontus snibb said: "It’s been a long time coming…in fact it's way overdue. Ever since I went through my Dad's old vinyl collection as a kid, I’ve loved the format. Listening to the Golden Oldies, the classics and the legends...looking at the big pictures just dreaming away to that infamous rumble. Bonafide on vinyl has been on my wishing list from the very start, and even though it's not Xmas yet, here we have our very own Bonafide Box set with our three latest albums all in one. Stick that needle in the groove, turn the dials up, grab a beer or whatever's your poison and just lean back and enjoy! A Rock ’n’ Roll skål to you all
