From 8 years ago:

According to Melodicrock.com, singer Ted Pilot will not be fronting Seattle metal band FIFTH ANGEL when the group makes its live debut in April, at the Keep it True Festival, in Germany. The vocalist, renowned for his work on Fifth Angel's self-titled debut, Fifth Angel in 1986 and its second album, Time Will Tell in 1989, tried to balance time between personal commitments and the Fifth Angel project and ultimately, the demands on Pilot's time were too great.

"The time constraints Ted faces with other ventures just didn't allow him to take part in Fifth Angel's reunion like we all hoped,"said Ed Archer, Fifth Angel guitarist. "He really wanted to do this, but given his schedule, it's just not feasible. We're disappointed, but respect and appreciate his position."
"This was an amicable parting," Archer added. "Ted understands our desire to move forward as Fifth Angel and we're all still friends. Everyone is at peace with his decision. Pilot's decision was not unexpected. The band has been in contact with another singer throughout the past few months, in anticipation that Pilot would not be able to perform. We've got another singer in mind that we feel is worthy of filling Ted's shoes, Archer explained. We don't want to announce who it is just yet, but we will as our plans firm up, in advance of the Keep it True Festival later this year."

Fifth Angel is working on its third album, slated for release in late 2010. For more on the band, visit www.fifthangel.com and www.fifthangel.net.

It's cool that it's three original member, but one of them really needs to be the lead vocalist. The song is okay - a real 50/50 number. Kind of bland, but okay on some level. It just doesn't sound like proper Fifth Angel without Pilot, though. :(

This is a pretty good album.  The songs aren't quite as catchy/memorable as their earlier albums and as such it isn't on par with those, for me.   Kendall does a solid job on vocals but I believe Ted would have raised things to another level.  Don't let the first promo track mislead you, the majority of this is more straight forward metal.   Everything is well played  (I've read Ed Archer contributes as well) with a nice production.  My favorite tracks would be "This is War", "Hearts of Stone" and "Stars Are Falling".

    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.  
    • It's average for them IMO. Good to hear that singer again though. She was on a lot of their songs a few years ago when they were at their best.
    • I just discovered this album this morning after Spotify recommended it to me, it was definitely awesome!
    • "Victory" by Lonely Fire. Hey, I think this is the first contemporary AOR song I've posted on here!
