Angel Dust - Bleed Review

back to reviews

Artist: Angel Dust

Album: Bleed

Released: 1999

A mixture of styles and genres: Melodic Power Metal


Is that the same Angle Dust who used to play Thrash / Speed Metal in the 80's??? Looking on the lineup I realize that I'm right (though only 2 members of the original Angel Dust lineup are left in the band - Dirk Assmuth and Frank Banx).
First track (Bleed) on the album just blew me away, so I decided to buy the CD. When I was listening to it at home I understood that the rest of the album is also very good. Powerful and atmospheric Metal music with lots of keyboards, mighty vocals, very interesting ideas.
Talking about keyboards, they play not the last part on the album, I'd say they are one of the main instruments. Guys almost got rid of their Thrash / Speed sound. I'd say that it's a new band playing high quality Power Metal, and they _KNOW_ how to play and _CAN_ play it!!!
Combine the best of Savatage, Dream Theater and Crimson Glory in one band, add some speedy sound and you've got Angel Dust with the album Bleed.
Also check out these guys on the Ronnie James DIO tribute album Holy Dio with their version of Temple Of The King, though it lost its original sound it kicks major ass!
