The symbiosis of classy, sophisticated song writing characteristic for the US and the traditional Heavy Metal values and virtues of European combos turn ‚Outsiders‘ into a metal fireworks par excellence.

MASTERS OF DISGUISE – Back With A Vengeance
Even though it may seem so at first glance, „Back With A Vengeance“ by MASTERS OF DISGUISE is NOT copying the legendary past of Savage Grace, the speed metal legends whose name can still be seen on patches on the jackets of one in three metal fans. No, MASTERS OF DISGUISE fills the musical gap, which Savage Grace left behind them, and they do it brilliantly with incredible self-assurance. „Back With A Vengeance“ is a furious firework of speed and power, topped with a decent portion of melodies taking their talents to the musical limits.
