Risk

Risk was the band formerly known as Faithful Breath, who by the mid-eighties had become a respectable and fairly well known German power metal band. It's not quite clear why the band felt the need to change name, but in any case the musical style didn't change radically (though they dropped the Viking image of the old band), still in the Accept realm of straightahead power metal, maybe a bit more aggressive than in the past, possibly due to the addition of guitarist Romme Keymer, who had previously played in Angel Dust in their speed metal days. Despite some decent albums they never made it to the upper levels of metal stardom, and faded away in the mid-nineties.
