Saints’ Anger (1983)

Saints’ Anger are a German heavy metal band, formed in 1981 by vocalist / guitarist Harald Piller. Then a three-piece, the trio was completed by Joachim Walter (bass) and Harald Reiter (drums). It wasn’t until April 1983 that they added a fourth member, guitarist Jürgen Knief.

Musically, slight comparisons can be made with fellow countrymen Accept, noticeably on the fast paced ‘Heroes’, with the screeching Udo Dirkschneider-like vocals of Harald Piller, and the best cut on the demo ‘The Ghost’s Tale’, which features some good twin lead work from Piller and Jürgen Knief. On the other hand, ‘Exposured’ and ‘Highway’ are just average rockers, but still worth checking out if you get the chance.
