If there are any fans of Spike or Frankie Miller who are on the fence regarding whether to get this album or not, then I would say to definitely buy it. The same goes for anyone with an open mind and an interest in quality songs played by some of the best in the business. Despite being a bit of a departure from my usual riff-filled listening, I thoroughly enjoyed this album, although, for me personally, I would have preferred a bit less of the country influence on some songs but that’s just me. If you appreciate that style of music then I imagine your rating would be even higher.
Rage of Angels sophomore effort is something very special indeed. Whilst the début included a who’s who of melodic rock royalty providing guest vocals on each of the tracks, this is a far stronger more streamlined release that benefits from Rob Moratti being front and centre on each of the 10 tracks on offer.

The band lays down an interlaced path of hooks and melodies that are hidden in deep in the submersion of the sound
