Inspirational lyrics with good vocals. Music rocks with balance between contempo
Hi energy music rocks with a balanced blend of traditional/contemporary sound/vocals.
The lyrics reflect an awareness of global issues relevant to Humanity's survival yet project encouragement.
NDN Alien is my fav as it speaks for how I feel inside.

Sience Is A Weapon
Since Wounded Knee in 1973, I have not been able to hear our AIM song without feeling the deepest emotions, pride and loss and maybe anger, then the kickass music begins. For the first time I am ordering a disk of this kind, a mix of traditional and rock. Thank you Blackfire "WK 73" Vet

Oh Yeah!
I ordered this CD after coming across the band while google searching for something else. This CD rocks. Some songs remind me of other bands, but Blackfire also has their own sound at the same time.If you like early punk rock and/or X you might enjoy this band. They have some stuff on youtube if you want to check them out. Highly recommended. I bought a second CD for a friend.
