Science of Annihilation
Supremacy of Steel
Known for crafting great memorable songs, capturing the essence of the classic NWOBHM sound, and always sounding unique and modern, CAGE somehow effortlessly shows how the limits of the genre can be pushed without losing what makes the Heavy Metal sound a worldwide calling for the faithful. Throughout the 11 tracks, all the smashing CAGE elements are found along with fresh new surprises that are tastefully sprinkled about in just the right fashion.
From the blast beats in the opening scream fest "Bloodsteel", to the eerie KING DIAMOND-like falsettos in "Annaliese Michel", CAGE fans new and old will be banging their heads with horns in the air throughout this entire long player for decades to come. "Supremacy Of Steel" also contains the epic, long awaited sequel song "Hell Destroyer vs. Metal Devil" and a remake of their unreleased cult classic song, "Braindead Woman". Anthems like "Metal Empire" and "King Of The Wasteland" will have all Metal fans unable to resist such true, convincing Metal emotion.
Their latest and greatest lineup yet includes the hulking frame of riff master DAVE “Conan” GARCIA, the unmatched vocal diversity and range of singer SEAN “The Hell Destroyer” PECK, drummer NORM “The Legend” LEGGIO also of PSYCHOTIC WALTZ, and debuting the new additions of thunder-thrash guitarist STEVE “Bloodsteel” BROGDEN and the amazing bass playing of one America’s best, PETE “Hands Of” STONE.
All the power and speed from their previous award winning albums has once more been ramped up with faster drums, blazing leads and riffs that will stay with you into the night, and the highest of inhumanly impossible supersonic screams. This is all pointless without great songs but CAGE has always had their song writing as their greatest strength and "Supremacy Of Steel" is absolutely no exception. CAGE has carved yet another stone to fit into the foundation that reinforces their title as the American Power Metal Kings.
As always, CAGE has spared no expense when it comes to the presentation and packaging of their products. The amazing artwork of MARC SASSO (DIO, HALFORD, MARVEL COMICS) depicts the band in a live setting with the very Metal Godz themselves looking down upon the mayhem! The 16 page interior booklet is second to none with various artists chronicling the contents of each song in vivid color and truly has to be seen to be believed. It may be the finest looking metal booklet ever and that is no exaggeration!
Voted best new band in 1999 in ROCK HARD’s Unerhort competition, CAGE has gone on to win album of the month and album of the year awards with each subsequent release, in various publications and web sites all over the world. True Metal fans all over the world have embraced CAGE as one of the few that can consistently deliver the magic that only this kind of sound can give. Having ramped up their touring over the last 4 years more and more people have gotten to experience the CAGE sound live and thus the fan base for them has grown greatly in recent times.
Formed in 1992 at the height of the grunge era in San Diego California was no easy task for CAGE. Their thirst for metal glory was unshaken during these metal dark ages and thus their commitment to the genre is equaled only by few. Opening for the legends IRON MAIDEN, DIO, and JUDAS PRIEST had them forging their sound in the hottest of Viking fires. Their amalgamation of all that is good in metal is worn proudly on their black leather and glittering steel sleeves. Defying all that would have them believe that heavy metal was dead, CAGE not only showed America the "Supremacy Of Steel", but they have taken that message around the world as well. Now, almost two decades later, perhaps their finest work is here for you to experience!
