3 stars Bonfire is a dutch rock band that only produced one album. The music has elements that also can be found in the music of Finch and Focus. It is all instrumental and the main parts are reserved for the piano of Frank Witte (who is also the main composer) and the guitar of Eugene den Hoed (who also plays flute). On the a side of the album there are five short tracks and on the b side there is the long Sage Of The Running Nose.

The music has influences from the Canterbury scene (Chinese in Europe and The Sage Of The Running Nose), Focus (Contrast and Vuurstaal) and Camel (Circle). It is complex, varied and melodic and it sounds fresh. The music is well played but somehow it is a bit cold and emotionless.

On the cd four bonus tracks are added. Two edits from album tracks and two demos that were recorded by a complete new band (except for original member Witte) in 1980.

Agemo | 3/5 |
