Henk : Desolation Angels is a band that has been busy since 1981. In all those years, however, Lords Of Metal never paid attention. Apparently the band's albums did not reach headquarters. However, the new album 'King' has arrived, hence the debut of Desolation Angels on your beloved webzine. A special fact of this record is that it was produced by the recently deceased Chris Tsangarides. Perhaps this is the last thing he worked on. Anyway, tt has become a good album. The band brings us nine songs in just over three quarters of an hour. There are comparisons with the NWOBHM and in particular bands such as Saxon and Judas Priest. Not all songs are equally successful though. 'Find Your Life' is a bit of a dull song. Luckily there are rockers like 'Rotten To The Core' and the absolute outstanding 'Another Turn Of The Screw'. The better songs are in the majority which makes 'King' a more than decent album. The album sound is natural without all the modern compression of today. Traditional hard rock and heavy metal fans should check this out.
