Burning Bright

Burning Bright
(Frontiers - 2010)

This new release from Kevin Chalfant and friends is an amazingly well-produced CD with a mix of rock and metal qualities. The band members all have a common background in the bands Journey and The Storm, but it is Chalfant who is behind all the 11 songs.
Although the band Two Fires have been around since 2000 the band members have been involved in other projects, but now it is time to concentrate the focus on Two Fires again. 8 hard rock / metal songs and 3 ballads, but all the songs are with fresh and enjoyable guitars rounded beautifully by the strong voice of Kevin Chalfant. If Chalfant and the guys are fully concentrated on the future of Two Fires I could see them have a successful concert tour to spread the knowledge of their music.
Favorites on this album should be Is It Any Wonder, Lost In The Sky and Relentless and the beautiful ballad Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid.

(Frontiers - 2002)

This is the second album of Two Fires the band of Kevin Chalfante and his partner Josh Ramos. They're coming from hard rock and that's what they did the last 20 years in different bands. For some fans Kevin Chalfante and Two Fires is the heir of Journey as long as there ain't no new Journey album. Even if the duo got a many known musicians to record with them the current album, they can't reach the level of Journey. But who can? Anyway, one of my personal highlights of the album is More Than A Mystery, a ballad which could have been of Giant... Unfortunately they can't keep it on this level and especially the 'faster' tracks can't keep it. The more balladesque songs are on a higher level and make this album worth listening. Check out: I'm Falling, I See Red and I Will Remember You.
