Quasy Modo "We Are The People" - cover, tracklist, release date: 20th February 2015


The release date of the Quasy Modo album "We Are The People" on CD is February 20th, 2015. The preorder phase will start on February 6th, 2015 in the webshop of Pure Steel Records.

Quasy Modo, from south-west Germany, have been active since the band was formed in 1983. They always stayed true to their original style of melodic heavy metal. In 1989 they released a mini-album with 4 songs which is very rare today. “White Dog” reminds you strongly of Ozzy Osbourne (voice and songwriting) and is truly worth of Ozzy. The following songs from a 7inch and other recordings which were put on a tape “Here we go” (1994) can now be found on this CD. Songs like the epic "I wish I" or the catchy “Christine” are absolutely worth listening to for all fans of 80s Metal.

Quasy Modo had very good song material but unfortunately there were a few shortcomings concerning marketing, e.g. the cover artworks weren’t very expressive. But their musical craftsmanship was impressive, they could do very strong half-ballads (“Goodbye”) and powerful rock-songs (“Highway Night Rider”). If they had had someone to tell them how to present themselves to the public they might have been successful in the 80s.
