MASS - FIGHTER
Metal To Infinity
me father for I have sinned! Damn, I really am ashamed that I have nothing of
Mass in my collection and I have already contacted my local CD store to ask what
is available from these guys. Retroactive Records really is a label to keep your
eyes on if you’re into US Christian Metal anyway because these guys also
re-released the first Deliverance
CD’s, two forgotten gems by the way. Furthermore other awesome records came
out through this label; think Faith Factor, Saint, Fires Of Babylon, Jacob’s
isn’t of course a new band, these guys are around since a few decades! As far
as I know their very first album was released in 1984. These guys play typical
US Eighties Metal, Heavy Metal pur sang, melodic and focused on good rhythms. At
some points they hardly cross the boundaries of what we could call Glam Metal
but it would be unfair to label them in that direction. No, bands like Warrior,
Stryper, Q5, TNT etc. are crossing my mind instead and therefore I repeat that
it’s such a shame I discover the band’s music now.
like “Watch Her Walk”, “Part Of Me”, “Voyager”, the title track etc.
are good enough to make this a band I need to spit out any further! I’ve read
this album was never released before, fans should try anything to lay their
hands on it.“Do You Love Me” made it to a number one track in 1985, not
federal but on a Boston Radio Station. It’s a very commercial song from which
I can imagine it was popular in those days but unfortunately Mass never really
broke through, although not in Europe. As a matter of fact this is the kind of
songs that fans of Ratt, White Lion, Poison, Guns ‘n Roses etc. would
heavier songs are more the way I like my Metal, don’t hesitate to try the band
out at their Myspace.com site, no matter how slow it works on that forum
nowadays. This CD breathes everything that the Eighties Heavy Metal sound really
holds and therefore it is more than worth checking this one out. New Metal heads
will maintain the perfect idea of that specific scène, old fans will make a
trip to Memory Lane.
good singer, great guitar solos, fantastic songs and after all it’s a pity
this band didn’t get any bigger but don’t ask me what went wrong with this
band, what made them hold into the underground. In my opinion they had anything
a big base of Metal fans really wanted two decades ago but they prove again
there’s more needed than just good music to become a Rock star.
above it seems not everything from these guys released is available but my
advice is to get as much as you can! Visit their site at
Another good reason to listen to Christian Metal!
