Profile SABER is a melodic hard rock band, from Maryville, Tennessee, USA formed in 1986, gave us only one album named “Do or Die”  released in 1997. What makes this album different is the switching voices between the songs. Both bass player Jerry Traxler and guitarist Chuck Utley sings on the album, even the second guitarist Jeff Finger does lead vocals on one song.

Anyway the album has everything from the melodies, song structures, musicianship, vocals, smokin’ guitars, production and cool-looking inserts make this one of the finest AOR/melodic hard rock indies ever. Imagine lucious harmony vocals blended with generous doses of Doubletake, The Creek and Bootleg.

The songs stand out is the opener “Baby Don’t Go”, a hell of a catchy AOR  uptempo melodic rocker with perfect harmonies, the straight-ahead rocker “Come and Get it”, the titled song “Do or Die” a wonderful 80s typed power AOR ballad with some lovely harmonies,  the melodic rocker “Tears Falling Down” and the highlight “Go Away”, a superb early 80s uptempo melodic rock/AOR song with some very impressive lead vocals of guitarist Chuck Utley. An ultra rare melodic album and smooth as silk. For fans of bands like Fanatix, Mae West and Dixon Jane
