Cage - Darker Than Black - Fugitive Records - 2003 reviewed by: Chaoslord
This CD has everything a metal fan is looking for--kick ass guitar riffs, thundering drums, phenomenal solos, and a voice that any singer would kill for. I have not stopped listening to this CD yet and grow more fond of it each time I listen to it.
My favorite track thus far is "Chupacabra" due to the guitar riffs and the fact that vocalist Sean Peck sings his ass off. As I read through the booklet, I was totally floored to see that Sean Peck did all the vocals and character voices on the album. What's the big deal you may ask? Well, on the previously mentioned song, Peck pulls off power, death, and black metal vocals all in one song. It's obvious that this guy has a voice that is different and far better than some. He could be a dead ringer for Tim "Ripper" Owens of Judas Priest, but I think that he is way better than Mr. Owens.
Anyone who wants something to headbang to or just sit back and rock out cannot miss picking up this CD. I believe that this is going to be one of the best, if not the best album of 2003. If you consider yourself a fan of metal in any way, shape, or form you cannot afford to miss this album. And for those of you guitar freaks out there, you should definitely check out the work of guitarists Dave Garcia and Anthony McGinnis. Hell, all the guys in the band are great at what they do so go check this album out.
