Origin: Mansfield, England
Genres: NWOBHM


Savage's Loose 'n' Lethal was easily the best album releasd by the British indie label Ebony Records (though Grim Reaper ultimately became more popular), and as good a representation of the classic NWOBHM style as any album of the day. The standout track from that album, "Let It Loose", was covered by none other than Metallica on one of their early demos. With the success of that debut album came a move to a bigger record label, but the resulting album, Hyperactive, wasn't quite as well received, and with continual organizational problems, the band through in the towel soon afterward. It would be ten years before the core duo of Andy Dawson and Chris Bradley would come back together in a reformed Savage, releasing three albums from 1995 to 2000 that by all accounts retains their NWOBHM heritage. Interestingly enough, the aforementioned demo track by Metallica was actually tacked on to the end of the last Savage album, Xtreme Machine.
