  5. Let’s All Praise God

This is another demo by Metal Angel – just not sure if it was before or after the other one. This one takes the 3 songs from the other demo and adds two more (or is it that the other one takes two songs away from this demo? The world may never know….). The two additional songs on this demo fit in well with the three from the other demo. The three songs from the other demo sound to be pretty much the same versions – even the exact same recordings. This is one of those bands that probably could have gone further if they had gotten some more attention/exposure/lucky breaks.

Metal Angel – 3-Song Demo

Not much to the details on this demo – not even sure who played on it. Of course, you think it sounds like metal by the name, but those usually turn out to be pop rock at best. In this case… it is actual metal! Not too bad metal at that. They could use a producer and studio, but there are some solid demo-level songs here. The sound is pretty much straight up commercial 80s metal. The vocalist does strain a bit at times, but that could have been dealt with by a producer that knows how to steer bands towards their strengths. There is also another Metal Angel demo from the same year with these three songs and 2 more (and also no cover), so we will see if their other two songs are this good.
