Released back when there was always two sides to every audio story (i.e., side one and side two), Giuffria's second offering houses an interesting concept: polarizing the huffy from the heavy. This is hardly a revolutionary idea, as such was the common format of most AOR at the time, and perhaps for the sake of balance some silk slips into the steel and vice versa, so the record ultimately ends up heavy on the light. The titular titan's bombastic keyboards float like angel feathers amongst David Glen Eisley's lung-busting vocals (Eisley even scats with axeman Lanny Cordola right out of the gate on "No Escape")…

Keyboard maestro Gregg Giuffria originally planned to retain the Angel title for his second high-profile cinematic rock show, but the scalding ivories soaring throughout this record prove he's fully in charge, making the Giuffria moniker an apt band name. The long, blond angel always kicks off his projects with some cool keys, and the pulsing prelude to "Do Me Right" overpowers the rest of the song; like much of the album, this track devolves into a standard hair cut with symphonic trappings…

The first solo album by former (and future) Dio guitarist Craig Goldy. Working under the name Craig Goldy's Ritual, the album features two vocalists. Mike Stone provides vocals for about half of the tracks, while Goldy's ex-Giuffria colleague David Glen Eisley sings on the other half. Eisley has such a powerful voice it's no surprise that his tracks far outshine Stone's. The music on Hidden in Plain Sight is not as "metal" as Goldy's Dio work, instead coming across as more of a straightforward hard rock (perhaps hair metal) approach very similar to Giuffria and House of Lords. It's the kind of memorable melodic hard rock that the early 90's were so well known for.

The voice of Guiffria. Giuffria has released two records with this singer, before Gregg Giuffria left the band and creates House Of Lords. Stranger From The Past, David Glen Eisley's solo album, is a truly rock record. From first to third track, Eisley's songs is full of melody and with fast rock songs compare to the whole record (we are speaking of soft hard rock "à la" Night Ranger).

Angel was a '70s heavy metal band based on the East Coast featuring singer Frank DiMino, guitarist Punky Meadows, and keyboard player Gregg Giuffria. They had their biggest success in 1978 with the album White Hot, which featured their Top 50 cover of "Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore." The group broke up after the release of Can You Feel It, but had their work repackaged in several different collections…

“Saint Of The Lost Souls” is already one of the years most anticipated melodic rock releases and will not disappoint fans of the band or genre. James Christian's well crafted and smooth vocals bring the band's craft to new heights. Guitarist Jimi Bell is on fire and the melodic riffs throughout the album will leave you breathless. A new addition on bass is Chris Tristram, who is no stranger to the rock community. His solid performance adds another dimension to the sound and BJ Zampa brings a solid and powerful rhythm foundation to House of Lords.
