Slaughter - Fly To The Angels



"Fly to the Angels" was a world-wide hit for Slaughter, charting #1 on four separate charts including Mainstream Rock. It is also the only Slaughter single to go platinum, and so is their greatest success as far as sales go. It appears to be a requiem for a long-lost, perhaps deceased, lover or close friend. It was also yet another power ballad, at the turn of the 1980s/1990s decade when it seemed every heavy metal band had to release one power ballad in order to chart. Slaughter had two other Hot 100 charters, "Up All Night" and "Spend My Life," both also in the early '90s. The band seemed to suffer from being compared to a lot of the "hair bands" of the time, particularly Skid Row, and from arriving on the metal scene right when grunge was about to come out of Washington and wipe heavy metal off the map for awhile.
