Rage of Angels – Rage of Angels – 1989

This was the one and only album from Rage of Angels and if you have the vinyl version it’s actually quite collectible. This was another late 80’s glam metal band but they were a notch up from some of the metal bands of the time. I am always surprised by the metal bands that come out of nowhere, put out an excellent album and then disappear again. Reportedly the band broke up before the album even came out which is too bad as I really feel they were very good. Two members of the band, John Fowler and Frank Di Costanzo went on to form Steelheart. The other members didn’t appear again on an album and unfortunately drummer John Fowler passed away in 2008. If you like your metal albums you will like this one and if your only a fan of hard rock give it a chance too, you might like it. I did.
