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".

Kourosofsteel3 is right, sometimes this one sounds more like RJ Dio than Fifth angel.

Especially the first single "the third secret".

    • Pulling out is like like signing a genocide order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • It's a blatant ripoff of Roger Dean and his work for Yes and Asia like "Union" and "The Ladder". 
    • Such a random album cover and band logo... looks more like Saga... or something like that..
    • I did see these when I was googling (and in turn ogling) her the other night. Very delicious. 
    • I was actually spinning it on Thursday/Friday too and stand by my comments. Solid album, but easily the weakest of their last three. Really missing some knock-out blows. But solid. 
    • Got my advance digital copy of the Donnie album and it is defo not an EZN album by any means, with that above song being the only one that really captures that classic sound. Much like most of his releases, this is a more laid back affair for the most part but does have some great songs on it. As expected, a much better album than the EZN one, but would certainly not appeal to everyone. Unsurprisingly the Beatles and Cheap Trick influences are on show here as well.   If you are familiar with the rest of his solo career, then that is pretty much what is on offer here as well.
    • also pulling out of Paris agreement is grossly negligent imo and those tax cuts are gonna hurt the US in the long run....driving up debt will only lead to austerity measures in years to come. Trump won't mind tho cos he's saving millions as a result of his tax cuts lol. 
    • it's not booming in the rest of the world....mainly affected by his ludicrous trade war.
