Rage Of Angels T-Shirt

Post by hoby85 »

The Connecticut glam metal group Rage of Angels was cited as "one of the most promising bands in Christian metal" and were often compared to the likes of Mötley Crüe. However, the band split up before they even released their only album Rage of Angels in 1989, and several members went to play in the secular band Steelheart.

is it these characters? anything on the back?

The logo is completely different though - but the band and first album were the same name so they could have had different images for both.

If it is them, could have a cult following according to the write-ups...but obscure christian metal definitely wont get the same as obscure thrash metal.

There's also a few comic book references but can't find a similar logo, and don't think they are from the 80s.

Hermosa will probably be able to dig up something on 'em.

Surprisingly I did not find a single completed listing for a rage of angels t-shirt within the last 90 days. This however is the highest selling item for Rage of Angels last 90 days http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0415829133 so there is a decent market out there for their stuff.

I saw your listing for this shirt and i think your title could be better. I would remove "screen stars" and instead add in "Christian Metal" possibly you could also add in "tour" or "concert" even "80s"

Check out the description in that CD listing above for some good key words to use in your title and description. You want to be as specific as possible to help fans and collectors out there find your stuff!
