Lots of power & attitude, but most of the songs lack a good hook. Still, if you like it hard & heavy (musically-speaking, that is), then this rare little indie may get you all fired up. Not the worst thing you've ever heard, but certainly not the best either. The guitars really crank though, bristling with the kind of heavy edge that will have AOR-lovers screaming "Uncle!" in about 2.7 seconds flat. But that's really all there is...slamming guitars and tons of 'tude. No more, no less.

I had this disc and sincerely didn t bother me but itís not a must indeed.Some good catchy metal riff and some decent melodick approach sometimes,vocals not spectacular but ok.Traded it recently.

Very average hard rock/metal wannabe's. This release does nothing for me. Save your cash on other quality releases. Not bad but nothing special to offer on this release. Rated 4/10.

Not particularly my cup of tea either, but, OPEN FIRE are basically a guitar oriented metal band with some hard rock influences. If you're into bands like ASPHALT BALLET and WILDSIDE then you may like this one.

Bought this album in Honolulu, as a souvenir (I am from Amsterdam). The guitars remind me of The Sweet. It's mediocre, but enjoyable - and nice as an original treasure from far far away.
