Fire is a hard rock band that has been rocking Maltese head bangers since its inception in 1998.
In 2006 Fire released their first album titled Ignite.This was very well received by the local media and the band found themselves on several FM radio playlists.The success of the album led to Fire being chosen as support band for Krokus when the Swiss rockers played a number of gigs in Malta.

- Joe Vella (Pejxa) - Guitars

In 2007 the band played gigs in Manchester and London.
In July 2009 Fire released their second CD titled Thrill Me.This marked a turning point for the band as it led to extensive coverage on all local media.The album introduced the band to a much wider audience and the album topped local radio charts. Like the band’s 2006 debut album Ignite, Thrill Me is a collection of hard rock and metal tracks in the Whitesnake and Judas Priest mould.
However, whilst retaining the strong melodic focus that characterized their debut, Thrill Me sees Fire delivering a harder, edgier sound with songs like Come with Me and Where are Going being considerably heavier and darker than any of the band’s previous offerings.
Other highlights of the album include No More Pain, which reveals the band’s softer, bluesier side, and of course the title track Thrill Me, a foot-stomping crowd pleaser that has already garnered extensive airplay on local radio stations.
In tandem with the album, the band has also produced a video for Thrill Me, the result of a successful collaboration with Talon House Pictures.
The success of Thrill me led to a deal with German based label Avenue of Allies for a worldwide release of the album.
The CD was released internationally on October 30th and is available in several countries. For more info click on the store tab on the reverbnation page.
