Stupide name but awesome band: Danger Angel - All the king's horses

Postby Stevie WOnder » Wed Jan 04, 2017 10:03 am

This is a mix of different things. First off, it's very melodic filled with hooky choruses. I'd say the best description is melodic metal but it's got some power, AOR, prog all mixed in one band. They use lots of modern keys, the singer sounds a bit like Terrence Holler but I'd say he's better. The guitars are heavy, nice production, it's a huge winner for me. Big thanks to Guillaume for finding this one.

One of the best tracks here:

I'm surprised this didn't make Glenn's top 50. Highly recommanded!

A couple more songs from this excellent album.

BTW, PP attendees have already seen the singer of the band live, because DangerAngel's singer BJ also plays guitars and keys for the SOTO band and so played ProgPower in 2015.

OK, I'm digging this one big time..... Three linked songs are all really good. I hear David Readman in the vocals more than Terrance Holler, but I would be happy with EITHER of those names on anything!

Great recommendation!

Glad you enjoy it Mr Exar Kun. I was talking mostly about the track Who You Are. You'll see. ;)

I can also hear the Readman reference. Good call!

Now the vocals make sense. That guy is very talented. As was the entire Soto band. I didn't pick up on Holler myself. Tried 3 tracks, can't say it's my thing. May try again at another time though.
