Bonafide – Denim Devils Award winner

Denim Devils
by Katarzyna Zakolska at 22 February 2015, 4:43 AM

BONAFIDE is Hard Rock / Classic Rock band from Malmö in Sweden. The band was formed by singer/guitarist Pontus Snibb in 2006. They have released the following albums: debut “Bonafide” in 2007, "Something´s dripping" in 2009, EP “Fill Your Head With Rock – Old, New, Tried & True” in 2011, “Ultimate Rebel” in 2012, “Bombo” in 2013 and fifth studio album “Denim Devils” released on 2nd February 2015.

From first sounds of “Round And Round ” we know & feel that we have contact with true & happy Rock'n'Roll. Nice rockin climate & Rock 'N' Roll guitars with hoarse vocal. Very enjoyable & catchy track! Guitar riffs remind me of AC/DC in way of playing. Rockin riffs in “Hold Down The Fort” are incredibly catchy and excellent with great choruses adds flavour to this track! Clear rhytgmic section & riffs with great refrain and Rock 'N' Roll choir is in “Rock 'n' Roll Lifestyle” and I love these sounds!

My number one on this CD is track “One Kiss” with strong guitar riffs & grand rhythmic section. Refrain in this song is very cool, melodic choir with commercial echoes & very memorable with melody. It gives true happy moods and riffs are in Rock 'N' Roll style. Another kick-ass is “Killer” with great working rhythm, interesting riffs, nice atmosphere and fantastic choir! Amazing climate in “Good Stuff” with rockin rhythm and incredible riffs remind me AC/DC and THE DARKNESS climate.

A calmer track is “Get A Grip” with nice rhythmic section working in a Bluesy style, incredible singing and memorable riffs Maybe even LED ZEPELLIN and DEEP PURPLE are noticeable. Energetic track “50/50” has gorgeous atmosphere with Classic Rock and Rock 'N' Roll style and very powerful “This One's For You” has great melody with CHICKENFOOT influences. “The Game” also has amazing atmosphere with Hard Rock guitars and brilliant guitar solo and the guys also recorded the  song “Missing You” with a calmer style in mind with a Bluesy vibe – very nice!

I think that Swedish BONAFIDE are really great. They are experienced musicians and their power resonated. Catchy and melodic refrains are still in your mind after giving the album a spin. I'm sure that everyone who loves Hard Rock, Rock 'n' Roll, Blues and catchy melodies will enjoy this CD. Highly recommended to every Rock lover!
