HASH(0x9f47a00c) out of 5 stars American Heavy/Power/Thrash metal holocaust- "CAGE" ARE BACK!! Dec 25 2011
By Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"Supermacy of steel" is the brand new sixth studio album by American heavy/power metal band "Cage". "Cage" has been active since the late `90s featuring guitarists Anthony Wayne McGinnis and Dave Garcia, bassist Mike Giordano, drummer Norm Leggio and powerhouse vocalist Sean Peck.

Music-wise "Cage" could be described roughly as a mixture of "Primal Fear" and "Iced Earth" (Owens Era) which is an obvious comparison due to the up-tempo power/thrash rhythm section, the twin guitar riffs and solos, plus Peck's high pitched vocal attack. However, a more thorough play reveals that "Cage"s sound draws strongly upon early `80s American heavy metal; indeed experienced fans should be able to hear a good deal of early "Satan's host" and "Salem's wytch" on the heavy/power metal juggernaut that is "Supermacy of steel".

It has to be addressed that "Cage" rely much more on speedy riffs than melodies on "Supermacy of Steel" which, combined with the thick-yet impeccable-production, gives a thrash-metal flavor to most songs. "The beast of bray road", "King of the wasteland" and "Metal Empire" may rely substantially on lyrical clichés, still when performed and produced to such high standards, stand as a guarantee for fans of heavy/power metal. Equally impressive are the "Sabbaton"-esque "Flying Fortress" and the groovy/industrial "Braindead women".

Overall, if you enjoy a brand of metal that combines `80s heavy/power metal with thrash metal of the same era, then "Cage-Supermacy of steel" is for you. Fans of "Iced Earth", "Sabbaton" "Empires of Eden" and "Primal Fear" should make the most of this metal powerhouse.

HASH(0x9f47a024) out of 5 stars The power and the glory! Dec 15 2011
By Justin G. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
US power/traditional heavy metal wrecking crew Cage are back with a new album, their sixth overall, titled Supremacy of Steel. Cage is one of the most consistent (and consistently awesome) bands in the American metal scene, and Supremacy of Steel (great title, by the way) does not disappoint.

If you're unfamiliar with the band, Cage is more or less operating from the Judas Priest playbook, with a killer twin axe attack, pulse-pounding rhythms and Sean Peck's stratospheric shrieking vocals. This is power metal in the sense that the songs are really powerful, not in the ultra-melodic, sing-song European way (not that there's anything wrong with that). With Supremacy of Steel, Cage essentially takes their core sound and turns everything up to eleven. The riffs are faster, the rhythms heavier, Peck's vocals are more dynamic and the whole vibe is more intense. Honestly, you're likely to be exhausted after this album is over!

Lyrically, Supremacy of Steel tackles all the usual subjects Cage is so well known for, like love, loss, nature and pacifism. OK, that was obviously a joke. You're getting songs about metal, steel, battles, evil, and battling evil with metal and steel. Oh, and Doctor Doom, who is at least kind of metal, so there's that.

Supremacy of Steel is another winner from Cage, who still doesn't have a fraction of the attention their amazing music (and incredible live performances) deserves. If you're already a fan, you're going to love this album. If you're new to the band, but are into bands like Judas Priest, Primal Fear and Iced Earth, Supremacy of Steel will absolutely make you a believer.

HASH(0x9f47a45c) out of 5 stars Solid power metal album which tapers off a little at the end and suffers from poor production Sept. 14 2012
By dustmouse - Published on

These guys deserve way more recognition than they get. This album has some of the most solid power metal songs I've heard. It sounds like a combination of Iced Earth and Judas Priest, while still maintaining its own unique style. The first 8 tracks are awesome (except the lyrics on Metal Empire, which make me cringe). After that the album goes downhill a little (not a lot, but the last 1/3 isn't quite as strong).

The production is quite tinny and trebly. I have no idea who the hell was in charge of sound quality. Were they going for an old school black metal feel?? It was hard not to notice the sound quality when I first listened to the album, but I hardly notice anymore.

If you want to know what's in store for you on this album, go on YouTube and listen to the first track, Bloodsteel.

Rock solid power metal that pulls out all the stops. I gave it 5/5 stars, even though there are the couple issues I mentioned, because the good parts pinch off a 1,000 ton steel turd on the bad.

What we have here is another absolute crusher from the guys from San Diego. It's every bit as heavy and fast as Science of Annihilation but with just a little more melody.

Like Justin Gains said there is definitely a lot of Priest influence but there is a lot of other stuff going on as well.

It opens with Bloodsteel which kind of reminds me of the song Scream Machine from Beyond Fear. It has a similar intensity in both the music and vocals. The Beast of Bray Road would have fit in just as well on Science of Annihilation and even references Black River Falls. King of the Wasteland, Metal Empire, and War of the Undead all keep the momentum going and are just punishing. I always enjoy stories about WWII and so I love it when Cage does songs on that topic so I really enjoyed Flying Fortress. Cage must really love Marvel Comics characters because Doctor Doom is the 4th one they've done so far and is my favorite of the four. Getting back to what I was saying about other stuff going on you can definitely here the King Diamond/Merciful Fate influence in Annaliese Michel and is done very well. She was a German Catholic woman who was said to be possessed by demons and underwent an exorcism. Three movies, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Requiem, and Asylum film Anneliese Michel: The Exorcist Tapes, are loosely based on Michel's story. Braindead Woman puts a slight speed bump in the momentum of the album but is still good song. I just think it would have sounded better at the end as a bonus. Then we get back to another history lesson with the Monitor. The USS Monitor was the first ironclad warship commissioned by the United States Navy during the American Civil War. I love it when they do these types of songs. Then we come to Hell Destroyer vs. Metal Devil. Wow! That song is epic. It brings the whole Hell Destroyer story line to a close and would have sounded great on the end of that one as well. On the copy I own track twelve is Blood, White, and Blue not Skinned Alive. Either song rounds out the album.

Sean Peck's vocals continue to amaze me. I really enjoy his lyrics. How deep they are all depends on the subject of the particular song itself but they're always entertaining and not just a bunch of nonsense phrases strung in one after another.

They've gone through another lineup change with Steve Brogden replacing Anthony Wayne McGinnis on guitars and Pete Stone replacing Mike Giordano on bass and along with Dave Garcia the band still sounds as good as ever.

The only minor complaint is still in the production. Norm Leggio is an excellent drummer. The clicking noise I mentioned in my review of Science of Annihilation is still there but not as much. If the opportunity ever presents itself I'd really like to see them live. I'm betting that clicking sound wouldn't be there. The vocals come in clearer on this cd though.

Overall this is a great cd. I really wish you could give these ratings in 1/2 or even 3/4 increments. The cd is really great and falls just a slight notch below a 5 star. The more I listen to it the more I enjoy it.

If you are a fan of screaming heavy metal in the vein of the PAINKILLER album by Judas Priest then you will very much enjoy this offering. All songs are top notch awesome metal...high vocals, double bass, great riffs/solos and melody. One exception is Braindead Woman. They should have put that one on the album as a bonus but it is pretty funny. Not 5 stars because I would like a better production.
