Cage are a power metal band from San Diego, California USA, formed in 1992 out of the ashes of the metal bands Nomad and Crusher.

Cage recorded a full-length CD as early as 1995, however this album was never made available until 2007 when it was released as The Lost CD as an iTunes exclusive. Instead their first official release was the 1999 album, Unveiled. The line-up on this album consisted of Sean Peck (vocals), Dave Garcia (guitar), Eric Horton (guitar), Mike Giordano (bass), Damien Arletto (drums).

In 2001 Cage released their second album, Astrology. As of this album, Arletto had been replaced by drummer Mikey Niel.

In 2003 Cage released Darker than Black. Anthony Wayne McGinnis had replaced Eric Horton as one of the band's guitarist by this point. Also with this line-up Cage released the album Hell Destroyer in 2007.

In 2009 Cage released their fifth album, Science of Annihilation. Norm Leggio

CAGE Unveiled

Album · 1998 · US Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Unveiled" is the debut full-length studio album by US power metal act Cage. The album was released through Omega Records in September 1998. Cage were formed in 1992 in San Diego, California. The members came from the two disbanded acts Nomad and Crusher. While "Unveiled" is the band´s official debut album, they actually recorded a full-length album in 1995, that ended up shelved. The unreleased album saw an iTunes exclusive release in 2007.

Stylistically the music on "Unveiled" is "classic" US power metal in the harder edged end of the spectrum. That means a more butch version of traditional heavy metal with the occasional nod towards thrash metal. Lead vocalist Sean Peck is incredibly talented and has a wide range that goes from high pitched screaming to lower more raw type vocals. He is a very convincing singer and a great asset to the band´s sound. The instrumental part of the band´s sound fortunately follows suit. Crushingly heavy and tastefully played riffs, melodic solos, and a pounding and precise rhythm section are the main ingredients.

The 15 track, 53:08 minutes long album is filled to the brim with solid US power metal tracks, but 15 tracks are honestly a couple too many. The listening experience and the overall flow of the album suffer a bit from the long playing time, and I think "Unveiled" could have benefitted from trimming the fat. Still "Unveiled" is well produced and highly recommendable if you enjoy artists like Savatage and Iced Earth and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved. It´s a very promising start for Cage.

DippoMagoo
For the past few years, Cage had been one of those surprising gaps in my power metal collection. I had heard great things about them, but my attempts to get into their two previous albums Science of Annihilation and Supremacy of Steel did not go nearly as well as I expected based on all the praise I had seen for the band, so I made no further efforts to check out their music. Until now, that is. Whatever that something was that I found missing from their previous two albums, it’s there in full force for their upcoming seventh full length release Ancient Evil, which has proven to be both my favorite US power metal album since Pharaoh’s 2012 release Bury the Light, and one of my biggest surprises of 2015.

One thing that immediately sets Ancient Evil apart is that it’s a concept album that takes the form of a really cheesy horror story, apparently based on a novel written by vocalist Sean Peck. As a big fan of concept albums, this immediately caught my attention, and while I certainly wouldn’t say it’s the only reason I enjoy the album as much I do, I definitely think they pulled it off very well. The lyrics are engaging throughout, and the 5-voiceover tracks that advance the plot are all nicely done, while the occasional use of narration during the songs never becomes a distraction. One nice touch is that the band brought in vocalist Blaze Bayley to voice the main character on these tracks, and he did a surprisingly great job.

As for the actual music, this is easily the most enjoyable Cage album I’ve heard so far. For those unfamiliar with the band, they play an extremely aggressive brand of US power metal, with guitarists Dave Garcia and Casey Trask leading the way with excellent thrashy riffs and great solo work throughout. At times the guitar work on this album has a very dark tone, which adds to the horror atmosphere they were going for. This is especially evident on lead single “The Procedure” and following track “The Appetite”. Even compared to other bands in their field, Cage tends to represent the absolute most extreme side of power metal, and this album is certainly no exception. On the flip side, I find this album more accessible than their previous two, in large part due to some surprisingly strong choruses and a larger focus on melodies, especially on instant highlight “The Expedition”, where the vocals during the chorus are simply incredible. Another area where I feel this album is stronger than expected is in the very powerful and crisp production, which allows the riffs to come through stronger than on the much muddier sounding previous album, where I found the production to be especially lacking. Here, none of the raw aggression has been scarified, but everything just sounds much clearer.

Even when I struggled with their previous releases, one thing I always appreciated about Cage was the amazing vocal work of Sean Peck. He is without a doubt one of the best in his field. His high pitched wails are among the best I’ve ever heard, and he has a very powerful voice and aggressive style that fits the music perfectly, but on this album especially I find he does an amazing job toning it down just a bit on the more melodic parts, and he even uses a deeper voice at times to enhance some of the creepier sections. All around, an excellent performance from him, as always.

This album takes very little time to get going. The opening voiceover does a great job of introducing the concept and setting the tone, while the fast paced title track would serve as a great introduction to the band for anyone who hasn’t heard them before, as it’s pretty much a perfect demonstration of what they’re all about. The following track “Behind the Walls of Newgate” is more subdued, but it does an excellent job of showing their more melodic side, as well as the darker side of this album. Perhaps my favourite track on the album is “Blinded by Rage”, yet another heavier track, which starts off at a more controlled pace, before absolutely exploding during the last two minutes, where everything speeds up and goes into overdrive, resulting in easily my favorite two minutes of the album. This leads into one of the more memorable voiceover parts, and then the momentum carries on with “The Expedition”, one of the faster tracks on the album and probably the catchiest and most melodic as well. I find the second half of the album to be a bit more focused on the narrative than on individual tracks, though this works fine as everything flows together well, and there aren’t any less than great songs on the album. My favorite songs in this latter section are “Symphony of Sin” and the much slower but very memorable “Tomorrow Never Came”, which gives way to a delightfully cheesy ending in the brief closing voiceover.

I expected very little from Ancient Evil, so in the end I was pleasantly surprised when it become one of my favorite US power metal albums I’ve heard, as well as one of the best concept albums I’ve heard in recent years. If my experience is any indication, it should serve as great entry point for newcomers, especially those looking for a more brutal, more aggressive brand of power metal, and I’m sure longtime fans of Cage will be pleased with it.

Warthur
Cage may pack in a few pledges of allegiance to the cause of TRUE METAL!!! in the lyrics of Supremacy of Steel, but they're no Manowar - instead, their sound represents an exciting mashup of influences including Judas Priest and Mercyful Fate. When the band show such excellent taste in their influences, as well as great skill in blending two very distinct and different sounds to create a third one unique to Cage but still retaining echoes of the band's inspirations, the end result is a power metal presentation which is almost entirely absent of cheesiness. Fans of the more traditional heavy metal end of power metal will be well-served here.

Time Signature
Doctor doom....

Genre: speed metal / power thrash

The band is called Cage. The album is called "Supremacy of Steel". There are songs with titles like "Bloodsteel", "Metal Empire", "War of the Undead", "Flying Fortress", "Doctor Doom", and "Hell Destroyer vs. Metal Devil". The cover artwork displays the band playing on a skull-ornamented stage with three giant monsters (a viking, the Devil and the Grim Reaper) in the background.

Now, the message that all of this conveys to me is: "Metal as fuck".

But what about the music? Well, if there are three words that describe the tunes on the release then it is "metal as fuck"!

Cage deliver the goods on the album in the form of aggressive speed metal tracks with elements from US power metal (such as big choruses and the whole larger-than-life feel) and traditional metal (such as certain passages with lower tempos and more focus on melody). Apart from a couple of heavier songs, the tempo is generally fast and ferocious, ranging from midtempo to uptempo, and there are even a couple of blastbeats every now and then, and the Ripper Owen-esque screaming vocals by Sean Peck (aka. "The Hell Destroyer") suit the aggressive speed metal perfectly. Although Cage consistently stick to the aesthetics of speed metal and power-thrash, there is actually a lot of variation on the album, both in terms of riffage and vocal melodies.

The musicianship is top notch, as is the production, and guitar fans can look forward to a lot of tasty, shreddy, and classic guitar solos of all types, while the drums, while kept in the confinements of the speed and power metal styles, is dynamic and full of nice wee details.

Fans of old school speed metal and power-thrash are going to love this album, while fans of more modern types of metal can also look forward to a couple of more modern elements. In conclusion, Cage's awesome "Supremacy of Steel" is, in every possible way...

Metal.

As.

Fuck.

American stalwarts Cage return in 2009 with yet another lesson in aggressive, rip-it-to-shreds, speedy Heavy Metal. Now, a lot of people file Cage under the Power Metal tag but, while not entirely untrue, it doesn’t quite cover it. Don’t come here looking for the epic grandeur of a Rhapsody (Of Fire) or Fairyland. This stuff is pissed off and intense…think “Painkiller” in a screaming road-rage fit.

This is the kind of Metal that leaves audiences sweaty and nursing sore necks. Science Of Annihilation is double-kick madness, razor-sharp riffs and soaring, intense melody. Taking cues from the likes of Judas Priest, Agent Steel, Helstar and even some of Vicious Rumors’ more intense moments, Cage absolutely brings the Metal. Both “Planet Crusher” and “Scarlet Witch” will have hair flying, horns in the air and steam rising from the audience. The guitar leads all throughout this album are outstanding…intricate and precise to the max. “Spirit Of Vengeance” gives us a short break from the metallic tornado with a strong, mid-tempo rocker. Don’t despair, however, the intensity doesn’t let up and the vocals are in your face. Just when you were catching your breath, here comes “Black River Falls” to spear-tackle you and throw you back on Cage’s speeding train. “Stranger In Black” has a beastly headbanging groove on the intro before jumping head first into another mid-tempo ‘banger. The only even remotely subdued song on the album would be also be the shortest and it’s called “Spectre Of War”, but make no mistake, this is no “power ballad”…this is dark, haunting and brooding. The twin guitar theme in the chorus is amazingly sinister sounding. But just two short minutes after it begins, the album’s title track, a 3-part epic, literally comes in breaking necks with furious speed.

Man, this album is a wild ride. Cage is nothing if not, I’ll say it yet again, intense. I’m a fan of the heavier, darker side of melodic Heavy Metal and this stuff is top notch. Get on the interstate, roll down all the windows, blast this album and I guarantee you a speeding ticket. Go. Buy it. Now.
