FIFTH ANGEL should be the most underrated American Metal band of the '80s. They released two superb albums in the 2nd half of the decade but sadly both went largely unnoticed at the time, when the rock audience was focused in hair metal / melodic hard rock. Fifth Angel's self titled debut album was initially published by the now legendary Shrapnel Records in 1986 (with different artwork). The band got enough success to get the attention from major label Epic Records which signed them, re-mixed the whole thing and released the disc in 1988.
"Fifth Angel" is a killer album from start to finish. This is pure American Metal / Hard at it's best, full of melody, superb musicianship and awesome production. Think Queensrÿche, Dokken, Savatage and early Scorpions blended together, punchy yet still very commercial and appealing. James Byrd's guitar work is simply outstanding delivering melting riffs and emotional melodic solos, while Ted Pilot is an awesome vocalist with sheer emotion. We have monster drummer Ken Mary as well, who went on to hit the skins for House of Lords, Alice Cooper and many more.
After many reissues granted as official but in fact were bootlegs, finally "Fifth Angel" has been officially remastered for the first time from the original tapes, licensed to an UK label. Be careful if you're looking for a copy, there's still many fake editions on auction sites. This remaster of "Fifth Angel" sound million bucks. It's been more than two decades since Fifth Angel's debut was released, and the album hasn't lost one inch of its power. I dare to say this is a must have for any Hard Rock (and related) fan. Trust me, you'll be pleasantly delighted. Highly Recommended.
