About Me

The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David more. The reason Anthrax are so low on the list is because they're patchy. 'Among the Living' is a monster - with crap attempts at humour. Their following 2 are forgettable, though 'Sound of White Noise' was pretty good.



The band featured three Rough Cutt members, Amir Derakh, Matt Thorr, and Dave Alford along with guitarist Michael Raphael and vocalist Danny Simon . The band would later release three more albums but never achieved commercial success. Hurricane is notable for having the brothers of Carlos Cavazo and Rudy Sarzo from Quiet Riot, Tony Cavazo, and Robert Sarzo as bassist and guitarist. Kelly Hansen, who now fronts Foreigner was the fantastic vocalist that rounded out the band along with drummer Jay Schellen. The band had the biggest success with 1988’s "Over The Edge" album, but never quite made it to the level of bands like Motley Crue, Ratt, and others that were dominating the L.A. Recently, Hurricane has reunited with only Sarzo and Cavazo as the original members and has plans to record new material in the near future.



Most of their material follows a slower, pulsing pace—at times leaning a touch more towards classic, traditional heavy metal than much of this list (notably during "On My Way," dueling leads 'n' all). Then again, "Heat Me Up" is a prime cut of typically structured hair metal with a raspier snarl to the vocals; while "She's Untouchable" combines crunchy rhythms, fluid melodies, and slick vocal harmonies. Anyway Master Of Disguise is perhaps the only album on this blog that truly left me fucking speechless. Read more about buy Insta Likes here. I love all of the album's I've mentioned but this one brings a whole different kind of intensity. Savage Grace was a short lived speed/power metal act from the good ol United States that kicked fucking ass plain and simple. They only had 2 albums to my knowledge and some eps as well.



The album is still sought after by collectors and fetches top dollars in auctions. The self-titled album had some great tracks like "Sleaze if you Please", "Take It or Leave It" and "Tonight, Tonight". The band released a second album in 1993 but it failed to capture the spirit of the original album. A documentary DVD was also filmed showing the band’s struggles that kept them from reaching the top of charts alongside bands like Dokken, Ratt, and Motley Crue. Sweet Savage was a glam band based out of Texas that just never reached the next level. I’m sure the cover photos of all 4 members appearing shirtless with bleached blonde hair didn’t help their case.



Last but not least, Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers effortlessly plays the drums on all but "Mrs. The last third of Earthling is packed with guest appearances. If this were a concert, this is where things would really take off. Stevie Wonder ignites the party and soloes the harmonica to pieces on fast-stomping "Try", and before we gain our breath, Sir Elton John jumps out of the cake. On the countryfied "Picture", the duet between Vedder and Sir Elton John delights to a cheeky but very heartwarming degree.



Check out the old TKO albums also, they are basically Q5 without Floyd Rose. Joker's high-level songwriting is at times poppier than other selections on this list, dropping some huge sing-along choruses. As a whole, this record does have minor ups and downs.



Amazingly Roxanne reunited and released the new album "Radio Silence" 30 years after their debut album in 2018. Christian metal band Rage Of Angels released their only self-titled album in 1989. Featuring a sound that resembled secular metal which Christian metal fans were seeking, the band made a big splash on the Christian rock scene with just this one album.



And album that’s definitely top five definitive albums from the time. It’s a double diamond album at this point and is one of four legendary records from the band. And they’re also one of the first bands to do stadium shows in the round.
