Siren

Siren was one of those bands who showed great early potential (in the form of some excellent demos), but who arguably never realized that potential. No Place Like Home featured several of those demo tunes, and the album itself showed flashes of the brilliance that this band seemed to possess, but the band's odd choice for an album cover, combined with little promotion from the record label, led to an album ignored by, if not unknown to, most of the metal public. The followup album Financial Suicide, featuring an almost all-new lineup, was poorly produced and seemed to show a lack of direction. Vocalist Doug Lee, by that time the only original member left, decided to join Mekong Delta and Siren was done by 1990. In the 2000's original guitarist Rob Phillips put together a new Siren lineup and recorded three albums, the third of which was officially listed under the name Rob Phillips Siren to avoid confusion. While that band still exists, Doug Lee resurrected his (this) version of Siren once again and released Back From The Dead in 2020.

Recent album: A Mercenary's Fate, released on October 4, 2022.
