Masters Of Disguise  

There's an interesting back story for this band. Savage Grace was a prototypical Los Angeles indie metal band of the 80's, releasing a couple of reasonably well-received power/speed metal albums before inevitably fading away. Around 2009, sole founding member Chris Logue did some gigs with several hired guns, and some time after that, most if not all of those hired guns formed Masters Of Disguise, named after the 1985 Savage Grace album. Presumably Logue (who's not featured here) is ok with all of this, else the band might be sued for plagiarism or copyright infringement, what with naming an album The Savage And The Grace and liberally applying SG's logo and imagery. So, Masters Of Disguise is not a cover band, it's not a tribute band, and it's not really Savage Grace Mk II, though that last description might be the closest. The band themselves state they aren't copying SG, but they "fill the musical gap Savage Grace have left". Naturally, the music here harkens back to 80's speed metal, updated with modern production values. For retro 80's indie metal, these guys definitely fit the bill.
