Open Fire – No Uncle Of Mine [1995]

PhotobucketCountry Hawaii          

Style Hard Rock

Rating 72/100

Band Members Chris Yamamoto – Guitar, Erich Wida – Vocals, Jack Azevedo – Bass, Mike Patterson – Drums

Tracks 01. Can’t Find My Way, 02. Takin’ All My Money, 03. Judging The Book By The Cover, 04. Soldier Of Misfortune, 05. Gone Away, 06. Nothin’ Left To Lose, 07. Memory’s Gone, 08. What’s Buggin’ Me, 09. One Step Closer, 10. I Am The Killer

Profile 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!” 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.

    Miss this band, too. They were regulars at The Jazz Cellar in Honolulu. Glad you included them in your website…too bad we can’t find their music anywhere anymore.

    I just found out today that you can find Open Fire on YouTube now. J Azevedo’s channel has Open Fire songs with slideshow videos featuring the band at various shows. Check them out!
