HI m8. I think they are the same band who released the single "city of flames". You can check MA and band members line ups. And I believe they are from Us not from GER. I ll check it again further...

I just saw that MA infos have changed....

When I prepared this post I was thinking the same as you did, but when I double checked the info about band I change it as well.

Yes, the band members are American but the band was formed and active in Germany. It is a bit the same with the band Aska which was formed by the members of US Army stationed in Germany.

Hi all,

This is Shane 'Snoop' Tyler (drummer of Sabre) No, we only did the one album while stationed in Karlsruhe, Germany in 1984/85 time frame.
A lot of fun and in fact, the album just turned 30!

Me, Pat Murphy and Kenny Browder are still in touch (Facebook) but no one knows the whereabouts of Kevin Marshall. Sad, because we probably could have gotten back together for a reunion gig or something.

Oh well, thanks for enjoying it!

Hello Shane!

Thank you for contacting us:) It is great that a member of a band contacting us and providing information. I hope that you guys are oke that this album has been posted here on the blog.

I hope that you can find Kevin Marshall and be able to do a reunion gig or two or even record something :)

Indeed, I didn't realize it, it is 30 years already, man time flies by...

Thanks again for your comment and keep it heavy brother!
