Yes, 2017 will be pretty exciting. Not only will we be looking to the future by making a new record, at the same time we will also be revisiting the past, by bringing our debut album ‘Ecstasy And Danger’ live, in its entirety, for the first time since 1984!
‘Ecstasy and Danger’ contains several classics tunes, like the 8-minute long opening track ‘Queen of Desire’, ‘Scream Out’, and the pounding title track ‘Ecstasy and Danger’, songs that are often featured in our live set. But other tracks haven’t been played in a while now and songs like ‘Stormbringer’ and ‘A Bitch Again’ haven’t been performed live since 1984, since the touring campaing for the ‘Ecstacy and Danger’ album, 32 years ago.
When editor in chief Metal Mike reviewed the album for Dutch Aardschok magazine, back in January 1984, he wrote “Ecstasy and Danger is the best hard rock album any Belgian band has ever produced, so far” and he gave the album a blistering score of 9/10.
When Jeff Wagner reviewed the album for British Iron Fist magazine in 2014 he wrote “‘Queen of Desire’ is the best song they would ever write, a terrific 8 minutes, packed to the gills with events. It reeks of 70′s era Judas Priest, except for the balladic middle section, which recalls the ethereal moments – ‘Remember Tomorrow’, ‘Strange World’ – from that first Iron Maiden album” and he concluded with the words “a formidale set of songs, each having something tasty to chew on”.
Both editors were spot on with their words. ‘Ecstasy and Danger’ has proven to be a classic 80′s hard rock album and a fan favorite, together with the legendary EP ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’, released one year earlier in 1983.
