Satrox - Heaven Sent: A Swiss Heavy Metal Revelation
Album Description:

In the vibrant and diverse landscape of 1990s heavy metal, Swiss band Satrox emerged with their debut album, "Heaven Sent." Released in 1990, this LP stands as a testament to the genre's global reach and the unique contributions of bands outside the traditional metal strongholds.

Historical Context

By the early 1990s, heavy metal had diversified into numerous subgenres, from thrash and death metal to power and progressive metal. Satrox, however, embraced a classic heavy metal sound with a touch of hard rock, reminiscent of bands like Judas Priest and Accept. This sound, combined with their Swiss heritage, gave them a distinct identity in the global metal scene.

Musical Exploration

"Heaven Sent" is a melodic journey through heavy metal. The album's nine tracks blend powerful riffs, soaring vocals, and catchy choruses. Songs like "(Love Is) More Than a Feeling," "Powerlights," and the epic "Keeper of Sadness" showcase the band's ability to create anthemic and emotionally charged compositions. Werner Schweizer's powerful vocals, reminiscent of Rob Halford, add a dynamic element to the music.

Production Team and Studio

"Heaven Sent" was produced by Satrox and recorded at Powerplay Studios in Maur, Switzerland. The album was then mastered at the Hit Factory in New York City by Tim Young, known for his work with renowned artists like The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. This collaboration resulted in a polished and professional sound that showcased the band's musical talent.
