This American band comes from Ohio. The music of the band carries influences of 80's rough melodic hard rock that was incredibly popular in L.A. back then with bands like RATT, FIREHOUSE or SLAUGHTER as the major bands. LOST ANGEL is sometimes a bit heavier, but very melodic at each song. On their self-produced CD are only 8 tracks, but they are all very fine to listen to. Opener "Rock" is a bit simple rock'n'roll like something KIX, BRITNY FOX or KISS produced in the 80s. The following tracks "Comes around goes around" and "Kiana" as well as "Gateway to heaven" are the best tracks of LOST ANGEL. These are examples of how melodic hard rock must sound. The songs are all uptempo, catchy and there are even some hooklines. I would describe the songs as a mixture of FIREHOUSE, SLAUGHTER and MASS. The choruses are very melodic and very fine to listen to. The tracks "Bitch from hell" and "Hell to pay" are also uptempo melodic hard rock, but sound more like the old RATT sound. There is also a nice melodic rock ballad on the CD titled "A place called heaven (the lost angel)". The closing track is "Nights off", the heaviest track on the CD, but with very melodic choruses again. LOST ANGEL has released a good album that is listenable all the way, no fillers here! Recommended if you're into the classic melodic hard rock of L.A. bands like FIREHOUSE, SLAUGHTER or perhaps LOUD'N'CLEAR (a bit heavier).
