Public Glory, Secret Agony (Breaker/Nuclear Blast)
by Scott Hefflon
Now signed to Udo’s Breaker Records and licensed by Nuclear Blast, these power metal fellows loved mid-’80s female-fronted metal like Warlock, Hellion, and Lita Ford so much (or they just wanted to not have to watch a guy’s ass strut in front of them every night) that they enlisted a leather-lunged vixen to belt out whatever silly lyrics happened to occur to them. And while they write pretty third-rate rhythms, they can play pretty bad-ass and Frederica De Boni does have quite a pair of, um, lungs.
