Profile 48 Crash was formed from members of the former German metal band called Gravestone. Gravestone produced 5 albums in their career from 1977 to 1986 on the label Scratch Records. As time changed, so did the band and a hard rockin’ album came from the ashes. What was once a crashing metal sound was brought down to a more commercial sounding rock album with 48 Crash. To some fans, this might have been the cause of the artist’s popularity demise.

The songs “Forever Goodby,” “Madeleine” and “All Your Love,” “Wings Of Passion” are much better than the unfortunately rather poor sales figures suggest the debut disc. 48 CRASH offer really great and powerful melodic hard rock with great riffs and beautiful harmonies.

The drummer, Thomas Imbacher, also performed in a project titled Stranger and is featured on their 1990 release “Pretty Angels”. The one album the band released as 48 Crash in the very late 80’s was to be the only item under this moniker and they disbanded in 1990.

    Good review. The album is quite solid, but there were fewer metal moments here than on the last Gravestone album, and even that one was already commercial-leaning. The four songs off this album that are on the reissue are as hard as it gets for this album.
