Perhaps not everyone is familiar with the band name Hail Mary. However, it should be different with Leatherwolf. The metallers from Huntington Beach, California have caught attention with very good albums, whereby the best records were certainly made in the first phase between 1985 and 1989.
The first era of Leatherwolf ended after the release of the very successful ‘Street Ready’ album and instead of just giving up, Geoffrey Gayer, Michael Olivieri, and Carey Howe got together to form Hail Mary. The Triple Axe Attack was thus still active, trying to counter the burgeoning grunge hype. The three recorded several songs together with Marco Forcone and Patrick Guyton. Some of these ended up on demos and in addition Hail Mary also had recordings with Tom Fletcher as part of a development deal with Epic Records.
Unfortunately, Hail Mary had never been a release until today. Now, however, Eönian Records is issuing demo recordings and the Tom Fletcher recordings as ‘Disturbing the Peace’ album on July 4. A total of 12 songs show a band that has and had a lot to offer musically, but was not really in the right place at the right time. If you like Leatherwolf in particular and melodic US-metal in general you should take note of ‘Disturbing the Peace’.
