In the summer of 1992 CAGE formed out of the ashes of 2 of San Diego’s premier metal bands NOMAD and CRUSHER with the sole purpose of creating head banging heavy metal that would make the grand masters proud!
In 1999, CAGE released their debut cd UNVEILED, which surprised everyone by delivering a pure heavy metal record that struck at the heart of the alternative, grunge movement, impaling it with its’ metal magic. This garnered them major attention and fans of the German ROCK HARD magazine voted them as the best unsigned band of 1999. As a result of winning the competition, CAGE was invited to play at the prestigious DYNAMO Open Air Festival in Holland being headlined that year by the mighty METALLICA.
In 2001, their astonishing 2nd cd ASTROLOGY was released, which seemed as if it was CAGE 10 years later. Such rapid development had seldom been seen and the fans and metal media alike embraced CAGE for their unequaled ability to combine the classic heavy metal feel with a new millennium identity all their own. The band saw them playing shows as special guests to legendary bands such as IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST, DIO and DOKKEN among many others. Touring in support for the cd, saw CAGE playing at the world famous WACKEN Open Air Festival in Germany and the METAL DAYZ Festival in Switzerland, in addition to other festivals / shows throughout the United States.
