Home Artists - A to K Artists - A Angel

Angel

Angel, like Kiss and Cheap Trick, took the flamboyance of the glam rock bands of the earlier 70s and added the heavier sounds of the likes of Black Sabbath in a way which was to prove influential on the decade that followed.

Perhaps even more than Kiss, Angel pointed towards the glossy rock of such successful 80’s bands as Dokken and Poison.

White Hot (1978) is arguably their best album, having lost some of the prog influences from their early work, but retaining the hard rock edge which was to be diluted in their later albums.

Anthemic tunes such as Over and OverHold Me, Squeeze Me and Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore showcased the band at its concise, punchy best, delivering hook-laden pop-metal of the highest quality.
