Omen - "Warning of Danger" [1985]

Artist: Omen
Title: Warning of Danger
Genre: Heavy Metal
Country: USA
Release date: 1985

Track List:
  1. Warning of Danger
  2. March On
  3. Ruby Eyes (of the Serpent)
  4. Don't Fear the Night
  5. V.B.P
  6. Premonition
  7. Termination
  8. Make Me Your King
  9. Red Horizon
  10. Hell's Gates
The sophomore release by Omen isn't as interesting as their debut "Battle Cry", yet it still contain some pretty good music. The first three tracks, for instance, sound quite nice, although the album overall is more boring than "Battle Cry" despite better quality of production. The lyrics have become much more simplistic, even to the level of being primitive at times, although sometimes this "primitivism" is working quite well:

"March on metal warrior
March to battle
To battle with all your might
March on metal warrior
You can't lose
You can't win without a fight..."

...Well, some other lyrics on this album aren't as simplistic, but still lacking in quality - i.e. "Red Horizon" (Cold War era propaganda, unfortunately) or "Termination" (re-telling the plot of the first Terminator movie wasn't a very good idea), but, all these flaws considering, "Warning of Danger" is still an album worth listening to.
