FYRE! – “Missy Powerful” (2014)

Label: Flaming Passion Music/AFM

Review by Tony Cannella

FYRE! is a powerful and energetic hard rock outfit fronted by Argentinean vocalist Alejandra Burgos. The band has released their debut album “Missy Powerful” via AFM and it features 14-songs and 50-minutes worth of infectiously rollicking hard rock tunes that are impossible not to like and have some affinity for.

Let’s get started… Right out of the gate “We Are Here” is a great opening and introduction to this killer band. “Get the Hell Out” follows and it features a nice up-tempo, bouncy chorus and also includes a saxophone solo and some cool interplay between the lead guitars and sax. “Stay Until the Moonshine” has a bit of an acoustic base but is still an up-tempo rocker. “No Happiness” is a great melodic mid-tempo rocker and “I Love to Rock” is an anthemic rocker. The biggest surprise is the cover of the Led Zeppelin classic “Stairway to Heaven” which closes the album and you know what? The band does a great job with their version. Other highlights include: “Crazy Little Woman”, “27” and “Devil is Me”. Lead vocalist Alejandra Burgos really shines with her slightly raspy, high energy approach.

With their debut album, FYRE! totally blew me away. Sometimes something comes out of nowhere and hits you unexpectedly, and for me “Missy Powerful” is one such album. FYRE! is a cool band and musically they play a style which you don’t get a ton of these days and something we need more of.

Rating – 90/100
