1985. Warning Of Danger
is the second album by band Omen.
USPM was such a short and area-specific movement that very few bands emerged with more than one classic album; or even more than one decent album. Originally overshadowed by the NWOBHM, thrash would take over in popularity before USPM really had a chance to get off the ground. Only a couple of bands would gain even remote commercial success (Queensryche, Fates Warning, Jag Panzer), and only a handful of others would go on to achieve any significant level of recognition. Omen were one of those bands, and with good reason - Battle Cry is one of the pinnacles of USPM, and the following two albums were nearly as good. Only a few other bands were able to produce three or more quality albums - Helstar, Manilla Road, Shok Paris, Virgin Steele, and Liege Lord are pretty much the extent of that list.
With Warning of Danger is endlessly replayable and hooky as fuck, and if you have a shred of metal in you, it’s a given that you’ll love this, the album is the same quality as their debut Battle Cry.
“…shake the earth without a tear, all are running lost with fear…”
