Album Review

It’s after dark again and again I have nothing better to do than listening to old-school heavy stuff and try to write something beautiful. Tonight, I offer you: SAINT’S ANGER! This band was formed in Germany in 1981, they became known in the orbit of TRANCE and even got a contract the management / label Trance - Music. Later on, at Aardshock Festival, they sold lots of cassettes and merchandise which impressed the boss of Mausoleum records who, after visiting the band in their rehearsal room, got them signed for his label. In 1985 they released their only LP ‘Danger Metal’, this is a review of the 2020 Remaster by Neudi (Golden Core, Deaf Forever, Breakout Magazine, Drums in TRANCE, MANILLA ROAD, JAMESON RAID etc).

Knowhow-wise I got caught with my pants down with this one (never heard of this band) but that’s partly because of the curse of the born-to-late generation. SAINT’S ANGER is clearly pretty old-school and vocals-wise there is a certain Speed Metal feel to it (not because of the tempo, because of the raw and high pitched screaming every here and there) Piller’s voice sometimes reminds me a bit of the never conceived love-child of Lawless and Bach (that certain kind of sound when singing in the low centre or his higher tones).this makes the sound a bit punk like sometimes but in a bold and somewhat cocky way. Instrumentally this is solid as a (Heavy) Rock, talent on string and drum duty which help narrate the whole thing in a groovy NWOBHM kind a way. I learned something tonight, join me and check out SAINT’S ANGER!
