Blackfire played their first show in 1989, since then they have toured national and internationally, with numerous U.S. tours (including a recent stint on the Vans Warped Tour), European tours, treks to Canada, Mexico and even twice to the sub-Saharan deserts of Africa for the "Festival in the Desert". Blackfire only plays all ages venues and sometimes combines performances with their Native American dance troupe, the Jones Benally Family. Joey Ramone recorded his last vocal session on Blackfire's full length album "One Nation Under". Blackfire was awarded "Group of the Year" for the 2005 Native American Music Awards. 2) Blackfire is a black metal band from Malaysia.

They were probably the first extreme metal band in South East Asia. First known as Metal Ghost when they formed in 1982, they later changed their name to Blackfire in 1984. They were also the first black metal band to write lyrics in Malay, though their songs had never been recorded until relatively recently. This was probably done in fear of upsetting religious authorities and attracting government attention. However, they were already known from their frequent performances in rock festivals and gigs around Malaysia in the 80's. Their debut album, Lahir Dari Api, was released in 2006.
