IF YOU ARE BUYING MULTIPLE ITEMS PUT THEM IN THE CART AND REQUEST A TOTAL IF NOT I WILL REFUND AMOUNT ONCE IT IS SHIPPED These guys were a fairly unique heavy/ almost glam metal band hailing from the Florida scene of the period which spawned countless dominating heavy and power metal bands.
The opener is probably the most memorable number; a dark, moody, yet rather catchy anthem almost commercial sound. The melodic heavy metal feel is a heavier Kuni or Cacumen. Much of the same blending happens in ‘Lovers Hell’; even the title itself blends both glam and power metal, and again, this is basically what’s going on. Mark Togie’s keyboards add a slushy, dreamlike and moody quality which underscores the somber vocal harmonies of the capable and distinctive Rick Bale. Guitar work in this one is exceptional, with very strong solos, adding to the sad emotions of the track. However, giving more of a distinctive, unique feel to the bands characteristic sound, these guitars are mixed down, and washed out. This really adds to the strange, dreamlike quality of the record. It’s things like this which make the band so original; usually, this level of washing out the guitars is the stuff of melodic, pop orientated bands, like what NWOBHM band CHARIOT became. This is excellent commercial metal and U.S. Power metal. A good comparison is Leatherwolf with a very dark, and moody, with even ‘Lace & Leather’, the most commercial song, having a very power metal tone. Arguably, this is power metal in that vein, but only some of the instrumentation feels that way, other times it feels like melodic heavy metal. Perplexing, but actually thoroughly enjoyable, and totally unique music from a completely unknown outfit. In fact, these guys remind me of Diamond Tyr – another band with somewhat of a similar blending of power metal, melodic hard rock and god knows what else, combining to make a memorable, often dark blend of power metal tunes. Again this is the original release in 1988 very few were made
