This band has its fine ingredients and glory moments. One spice from the rack is Paul Mario Day, (ex More and really early Maiden casualty). Then there is two old Weapon escapees in Bisland and Summers, a decent backbone that do a clear-headed job unleashing a bevy of civilized, respectable, and fortunately bendable hooks and corners. Metal, powered by commercially viable fuel that luckily falls short of skirt-chasing scumbag rock or the AOR red flag, though when you finally pass finale Eyes of the Future, theres little doubt Wildfire couldve rolled up with much softer tires if they wanted. Cool n dashing are Violator and Another Daymare, sliding along with enough dynamic steam. Victim of Love, If I Tried, Eyes of the Future, Lovelight – very melodic while stirring up a small nest of catchiness.
On the worldwide front, Wildfire rounded the table but couldn’t find their name-place amongst the Whitesnakes and Dokkens, but as they duked it out with more battle dressed Crossfire and Ostrogoth for Mausoleums marketing eye, they sorta succeeded, coercing from the label some full page ads and another LP.


A fan plays on his guitar: “as part of my Unsung Classics guitar video series. Wildfire was a NWOBHM band that had a LOT of potential but never made it big. This song features an amazing guitar solo – one of my favorites ever”
