iTunes Review

Upon first listen, Bang’s 1971 eponymous debut sounds like another band vying to ride shotgun on the Black Sabbath bandwagon. But upon closer inspection, the Fort Lauderdale trio was bringing much more to the table than inspired imitations. With its biblical references embedded in the lyrics, the opening “Lions, Christians” may have inadvertently invented Christian-rock. And where most other proto-metal bands were only implementing use of a sole guitar player, Bang’s guitarist Frank Glicken made good use of his studio time by overdubbing some of the genre’s first ever “guitarmonies.” “The Queen” follows with a contagious riff that’s catchier than the vocal melody before “Last Will and Testament” downshifts with swirling acoustic guitars tastefully enveloped in spacey tape-echo effects and bass player/lead singer Frank Ferrara inflecting less like Ozzy to find his own voice (which sort of sounds like a young Robert Plant had he cleared his throat prior to tracking vocals). “Come With Me” takes on a heavy rhythmic swing, akin to what Grand Funk Railroad were doing at the time (check out Ferrara’s high-shrieked wailing at the end).

Bang

There is no doubt that BANG was the offspring of "heavy metal thunder". This has to be one of the best blasts from the past for all of us that were born during the advent of FM radio. Before Sabbath, the Led and Bang no one even knew what a woofer was. Rock On!

It's been 25 years since I BANGED!

Had all my albums stolen in '83, all my BANG was gone. I have been looking for this album ever since. This is my favorite of the BANG collection, it goes places the other recordings don't go. WAY guitar forward rifts and super chord power saturate this one, just the way I like it. As an album this sums up BANG pretty well, although WINDFAIR is my favorite BANG song this album is collectively the most solid. If you are a ex-party-longhair-beerdrinkin-controlled-substance-smokin-child-of-the-80's this should bring back some memories, you know, the one's that were lost in a fog 25+ years ago. It did for me. Man am I glad to find this one again....BANG ON DUDES!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

As the saying goes, many are called but only a few are chosen, and that certainly applies to Bang's disappointing career in the big picture of early-'70s hard rock and heavy metal. Briefly hyped as top contenders fighting for scene supremacy, and once praised as America's answer to Black Sabbath, the power trio quickly saw its promise squandered, instead, due to their own inexperience and overbearing managerial intervention that diluted Bang's original musical vision and derailed their bid for success...
