One of my favourite bands Cage was formed in San Diego, USA back in 1992. It took another 3 years before the first CD was recorded but to this day it still remains un-released. The debut album ‘Unveiled’ wasn’t released until 1998 on the Omega label, the follow-up album ‘Astrology’ was released in 2000 also on the Omega label.
In 2002 Cage signed a deal with Massacre Records and the third album ‘Darker than Black’ was released in 2003.
All 3 albums have received great reviews and the boys have toured with Savatage, Seven Witches, Helstar, Steel Prophet, Nevermore and many more but the big break-through has yet to come.
Cage delivers a superb album with ‘Hell Destroyer’, an album that contains 21 tracks, 7 of them are small intros and track number 21 is a bonus track called “King Diamond” and yes it’s a tribute to the King.
The best songs are without a doubt the aggressive “Christhammer” where singer Sean Peck shows the world all about being a singer in a Heavy Metal band, the slow and melodic “Fall of the Angels” is also an incredible piece of work, and last but not least “Beyond the Apocalypse” is a great homage to eighties heavy metal.
There are no fillers on ‘Hell Destroyer’ everything are just perfect, the cover artwork, the production, the music, the musicians and and and...
‘Hell Destroyer’ is the ‘Painkiller’ for the new millennium.
