Anyone familiar with the band Enola G-a-y (excuse the spelling, by-passing the filter) from Germany? While I was looking through the discount section at Century Media, I saw their disc Strange Encounter for $6 bucks. They are described as power metal with a slight Nevermore vibe. Is this accurate? I read Ult's review and it sounded pretty decent.

Anyone else?

I've only heard a song on a compilation album. And that made them go right on my wantlist. That's all I know.

GREAT band! 🤘

I would say that description is pretty accurate - Some Speed Metal influence can be thrown in as well.


And how come you can't write merry? Is it offensive? scratch

Love 'em. Totally underrated power metal band. 🤘

Didn't know "gay" was a filtered word. That's merry! Razz

I have STRANGE ENCOUNTER... it's a pretty cool disc. I'd say Nevermore would be a decent comparison, though they're not quite as technical as Nevermore can be.

They did a great cover of "Heaven & Hell" on Century Media's HOLY DIO tribute album, that's what prompted me to seek out more of their material.

Just got Strange Encounter in a trade from Coma.
Haven`t had time to listen to it yet, but will come back with my thoughts on them.

I think I'll have to pick this up, sounds interesting. CM Distro has a coupla other things in that discount section that I'm gonna get so I might add this to the list.

So much for my cd spending freeze.

I think "Pressure" is my favorite, but all three of their albums are good IMO.

I have only Pressure. I love this one, they are very melodical but also heavy and powerful. They do a very good Beatles cover on this CD.

Ha-ha. Almost 3 years later and I still never purchased this (on any other Enola ga-hey) discs. Ah well. Guess I don't miss them that much.

EDIT: 10 years later and still no Enola Gay in my collection. Dang?! 10 years I've been wasting time here?

Zombie thread...back from the dead.... urrrrgh...

I dusted off Enola Gay's Strange Encounter for the ride to work this AM. Haven't listened to it in quite some time, still some pretty good crunchy stuff, tho I gotta say the singer's heavy German accent does lend some unintentional comedy to the vocals.

I found myself wondering whatever happened to this band, so I looked'em up on Metal Archives - looks like Strange Encounter was their last album, M.A. sez they're "split up." Oh well.

...side note, looks like "Gay" is no longer a "filtered" word on this forum. Progress! Very Happy

I was just going to try typing the word in when I saw the thread, but since I was beaten to the punch, oh well.
