A shame that many will not hear this

"Anybody out there a Rob Halford fan? Forget about the industrial synth of Two, I'm talking about The Priest, Fight, and his more recent solo stuff with Roy Z. How about heavy metal with memorable melody and chorus? C'mon, I know you're out there! Cage and their vocalist Sean Peck are waiting for you to discover them!

No neo-classical, no progressive, no keyboards, no ballads, no shred. This is classic hard riffing power. Nothing less.

As I said, Sean Peck has obviously listened to his Judas Priest, because he appears to have graduated at the top of his class with a Master of Halford degree. But he's no clone! He puts his own stamp on that style, taking chances with his range, and pulls off a masterpiece. There's even a slight amount of black metal screeching vocals on "White Magic". I normally can't stand that style (it's the only thing keeping me from picking up any Children of Bodom) but, considering the song's topic, they accentuate this song quite well.

Since they're from San Diego, it's seems fitting that they have a little bilingual action. It's not enough to record a song about the legendary Latino "Chupacabra", but there are both English AND Spanish versions! The Spanish version is "hidden" on track 47. Very nice!

Thank God for the internet, because I would never have found this band without it. I downloaded "Kill the Devil" and was hooked. Go to cageheavymetal dot com, to the download section, and click on the Darker Than Black section to hear for yourself."
Classic Metal !

"I have had this disc now for 3 weeks & am simply amazed at the quality overall. The guitar work is very, very strong- bringing us back to the glory days of metal. Sean Peck's vocals are perfect for this music, downright evil sounding on White Magic & Secrets of Fatima.
There are a couple tunes that don't have any "lead breaks", but you'd never miss it because the twin harmony guitars are great throughout the entire songs. Has very much a Judas Priest feel but don't be fooled, this is well written & well executed metal by CAGE! Not a stinker on the entire disc, it's hard to pick favorites, but the 2 above mentioned, Kill the Devil, Chupacabra, & Wings of Destruction are on the metal highlights reel - just killer overall."
Metal Masterpiece.

"One of my favorite cds of alltime every song is amazing Sean Peck is one of the greatest metal singers just as good as Rob Halford i don't understand why they're not as famous as they should be.."
