Die erste Review zu "Believe" aus dem Vereinigten Königreich
Iron Mathew Collins von Frenzy Fire schrieb: "Overall, a hardrocking slab of bluesy rock, highly infectious and sing a long able, "Believe" is an enticing appetiser for the band´s upcoming album."
“Was natürlich auf der ganzen Platte heraussticht, ist die Gitarrenarbeit von Guido Stoecker und der manchmal so richtig schön “dreckige” Gesang von Ela.” Hannelore Hämmer from german online magazine Powermetal.
“Album che evidenzia in più di una occasione il talento chitarristico di Guido Stoecker, un vero virtuoso dello strumento, e mette in luce l’estensione vocale di Ela Sturm, vera “goddess” della band. Album da mettere sul piatto e da ascoltare a tutto volume!” An excellent review by Giancarlo De Chirico for italian Extra!Music Magazine.
“De liefhebber van klassieke hardrock (bij vlagen voorzien van een flinke scheut bluesrock) kan z’n hartje ophalen met Bodyguerra’s Fire & Soul.” Chris van der Aar talking about “Fire & Soul”.
“and the excellent uptempo melodic rocker Believe (with its AORish chorus and Ela’s vocals like BONNIE TYLER meets STEVIE NICKS meets BELINDA CARLISLE, a clear 80s influenced piece)” Gabor Kleinbloesem from dutch online magazine Strutter ‘Zine scores “Fire & Soul” 8/10
“Overall, a plethora of rock styles await anyone who presses play – across twelve songs, there is something here for every rock fan to enjoy.” Iron Matthew digged deep into the music and wrote a very nice review about “Fire & Soul”.
“Quite remarkable that the band always sounds like a cohesive unit throughout this. Further the recording is excellent and Stoecker has full control over the variety of techniques and tones he employs, wearing his influences on his sleeve without sounding like a rip-off merchant. The vocals are impeccably assembled with luscious harmonies often being employed to spectacular effect.” Chris Hicklin really digged deep into the music.
“In closing, Bodyguerra will impress you with powerful rock as well as melodic songs with catchy hooks like those found within Stay Free and Steelheart, while the title track Fire & Soul proves that the band is not afraid to include soul influences as well.” Anne Carlini from Exclusive magazine
