Sabatan - Fire Angel (CD)

Fire Angel
by Michael Dalakos at 04 November 2006, 9:16 AM

Spain. Like every other Mediterranean country Spain is mostly known for its traditional / classic metal acts. Sabatan are one of the most known underground acts in this field from this country. They have released a series of demo / mini CD's and they are considered a quite popular act even abroad. An interesting trivia about them is the fact that they featured in the past the ex-Dark Moor / current Dreamaker singer Elisa C. Martin.
In Fire Angel now the band shows a bit different face than they did in the past. Their sound has been revamped towards a more modern style and to be honest with you this was a bit of a turn down for me. Without totally losing grip from their roots they incorporate elements of modern metal that doesn't fit right in my opinion. Two other things also caused me a headache. First is the production that definitely could have been much better. I understand that an underground act doesn't have the luxury of an expensive production - still from such an experienced act I expected something better. Also the new singer Miguel is not of my taste. Though he has a good voice that fits nicely with the bands modern attitude I can say that he impressed me (not to say that he often annoyed me).
My opinion is that this change of direction won't work in favor of the band. I can understand and respect their need to try something different but thinking about it they should probably stick to what they know best - classic heavy metal that is… album highlights: When Death Rubs Hands and Seprent King
