Twenty five years ago, BONFIRE was founded in Ingolstadt, Germany. The 2011 BONFIRE lineup features original members Claus Lessmann (vocals) and Hans Ziller (lead guitar). The first BONFIRE studio full-length album, Don’t Touch The Light, was released back in 1986, on RCA Records. Since 1986 13 studio albums (including a German version of 1996’s Feel’s Like Comin’ Home) have been released. From 1993 to 2009, nine BONFIRE compilation and/or live albums have been released.

  1. I’ve always liked Bonfire. Got two albums and saw them live way back in 1988, my friends band supported them at a club in London. The song Proud of My Country made me forgive Germany for the war.

    • metalodyssey Says:

      Very cool that your friends band opened for Bonfire in a small club. YOU LUCKY. I never saw Bonfire live. 😦

      Thanks for sharing that last thought. Music is a universal language that brings people together… I’ve always felt that way. 🙂
