PHIL ACCARDI'S CHALICE - Take Control (1988)

One of the most sought after 80's indie american hard rock-metal out there.
Not my fav style in any form, but this is a mega rare baby .
Self-released on cassette only (there's a "radio station only vinyl promo" even more rare)
Phil Accardi has the chops, crunchy sound, good solos.
Nice layered keyboards and acceptable voice.
Production is so-so, but c'mon, it's a self produced indie.
If you like this kind of 'hard 'n heavy', try this one.

1 - Eyes Of Burning Fire
2 - On My Way
3 - More than Anything
4 - High on Love
5 - Take Control
6 - Running Around
7 - Victim of the Night
8 - Bright as the Stars

Phil Accardi - Vocals, Guitars
Bill Poulos - Bass
Mike Muller - add. Guitar
Guy Lodico - Keyboards

Thanks for this! One of the VERY few Def Leppard sounding bands of Christian music. In fact, the only other DL stuff I know of is individual songs that sound like them but the rest of the band doesn't (i.e. "Living on the Edge" by X-Sinner.)
