BAND Desolation Angels
ALBUM WHILE THE FLAME STILL BURNS
LABEL Dissonance Productions
OUT March 20th, 2020
OUR RATING 84/100
A new album by NWOBHM band DESOLATION ANGELS? Not..due to the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus which forced the band to cancel their forthcoming tour and to delay the recording and release of next album, “Burning Black”.
Back in 1990, when the band was in LA, they released ‘While The Flame Still Burns’ with ROBIN BRANCHER and KEITH SHARP on guitars, Lee Addison on vocals, Sam Willmore on drums and Dave Scutt on bass.
They have decided to re-issue this album, thanks to DISSONANCE PRODUCTIONS; it’s available since March 20th, 2020.
They starts with ONLY TIME WILL TELL, classic and squared and with some typical trademarks of NWOBHM, a great one. SOUL OF THE CITY provides an embracing rhythm, more rockin’ with Lee Addison hittin’ of notes with an adhesive chorus.
The title track starts with lower vocals, a sweet arpeggio and with a riffing at times more thoughtful, at times stronger.
Different attitude in I’M ON FIRE, squared and more “American”, while POWER HUNGRY is a solid rocking one.
More structured WINGS ON MY HEELS, while KILLER is again more direct and powerful.
The last shot is FEELS LIKE THUNDER which ends in the best way this great album, starting with a breeze of chords followed by a massive guitar journey.
SURELY INTERESTING TO KNOW ANOTHER SIDE OF THE HISTORY OF THE BAND!!
