Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Black Angels - 1984 Black Angels [EP]



ARTIST: Black Angels
ALBUM: Black Angels [EP]
LABEL: Gull
SERIAL: GULS 8112
YEAR: 1984

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Ron Phillips - vocals * Andy McKay - guitar * Mark Egg - guitar * Walt Lion - bass * Harry Stone - keyboards * Tom Stuart - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Blind Like A Fool * 02 Rock The City * 03 You're All That I've Got Tonight


Background
Here's a Swiss band mentioned in the International Encyclopedia of Hard Rock & Heavy Metal. Black Angels are cast from the same piece of stone as Krokus, Stve Whitney Band and Killer. Formed in 1979, the band didn't achieve the same lofty heights as their fellow countrymen, however the band did release four albums and an EP during their time together. During 1983, Black Angels recruited producer Martin Pearson to work on their second album 'Kickdown'. Pearson had also worked with Krokus. 'Kickdown' was released throughout Europe by the Bellaphon label, plus Gull Records in the UK. Gull also followed up a year later to release the 1984 'Black Angels EP', which we are touching on with this article.



The Songs
The Black Angels boys certainly have the image, and admittedly it's hard to avoid the Krokus comparison. The EP only contains three tracks.. 'Blind Like A Fool' is a good mildly rampaging rocker in that typical Euro metal style. It was also released as a single too. 'Rock The City' is a bit copy-cat to Krokus I have to say, though entertaining enough in a harmless way. 'You're All I Got Tonight' drops the metal pretensions, and despite the boogie like riffs (again similar to Krokus), this one strikes out in a Lucifers Friend meets Tokyo workout.


In Summary
For their next album; 1985's 'Black And White', the Black Angels had replaced the singer Ron Phillips and drummer Tom Stuart with Clive Murray and Brian Irving respectively. In later years, some of the Black Angels material has been reissued on CD courtesy of Karthago Records, namely their debut album 'Hell Machine' and 'Black And White'. Probably not essential listening, feel free to add Black Angels to the history of Swiss hard rock.
