Their newest and greatest release, HELL DESTROYER, crushes all would be heirs to the heavy metal throne in one massive epic of a concept album. Based on the Bible's Revelations with some creative liberties injected, the story takes the much traveled "end of the world" road and completely invigorates it with a heavy metal make-over. The story travels from the Crucifixion of Christ, through the modern day New World Order, and the eventual Demonic invasion of the Earth by an army led by Satan himself. God's mightiest battle-angel, the HELL DESTROYER, is called into action and lays siege to Hell City! Nothing could be more metal as the story is presented in the world's first ever "Heavy Metal Graphic Novel". Beautifully illustrated by comic artist Forrest Butler, never before have you seen a cd booklet as wickedly illustrated as this as the extra text, lyrics and killer illustrations fully immerse the listener into a pre and post Apocalyptic vision of what could be the future!
The cd took 3 years to write and a year to record with acclaimed producer Richard Carr of DARKER THAN BLACK, HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON, and STEEL PROPHET fame. All the tracks were laid to analog tape and nothing but vintage compressors were used to capture this fat, panoramic, organic heavy metal classic sound. No plug ins or pro tools tricks here, as the real drums and un-altered vocals are heard in all their authentic realness. this cd has set the new standard by which all concept cds will be forever judged as this 75+ minute epic has all killer and no filler. CAGE has somehow managed to top their all time classic, DARKER THAN BLACK, making it 4 in a row now. Although it is packed with atmospheric interludes of character acting, sound effects and storytelling, the headbanging is relentless as CAGE is now faster, more technical and even more vocally over the top than ever before. But don't worry, the magic of the memorable song writing CAGE is legendary for is all there and these songs will have you screaming along halfway through the first listen. With the power of DA records and the distribution might of BCD, HELL DESTROYER will be scattered across North America for metal fans of all ages to devour. fans of Painkiller Era Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, King Diamond, Iced Earth, Primal Fear, and the like, will definitely want this metal monster!
Purchase the hard copy version or go digital 75 minutes of metal magic awaits! Includes such CAGE classics as HELL DESTROYER, METAL DEVIL, I AM THE KING, RISE OF THE BEAST, LEGION OF DEMONS, and many others. 20 tracks in all!

Cage -| Posted June 27, 2008
Now here's a band that delivers a powerful gut wrenching performance! Cage's CD "Hell Destroyer" is just what the doctor ordered for those metal heads who miss music with screeching screams of the likes of a vocal blend of Rob Halford and Bruce Dickinson, guitar riffs with wicked speed, and grinding tunes like those put out by 80's secular metal bands. Bands that came to mind when you listen to the CD include Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and maybe even Death Angel - and yet it is Christian metal! It is melodic metal at its finest, accompanied by lyrics that are illustrative of destroying evil ... A good example of this are the lyrics from the song Christ Hammer ... "The Christ hammer will strike the evil dead." The CD is packed with 20 songs that metal heads are bound to groove to and appreciate! The CD "Hell Destroyer" marks the revival of power Christian metal!
