Sirens is Savatage's debut album released in 1983 on the Metal Blade label. I have the 1994 version which has 2 additional tracks "Lady in Disguise" and "The Message." The album has a great sound to me, much heavier than their other albums it has a very clean and clear sound to it, angry vocals are mixed with in tune screams whilst played to some of the finest examples of early speed metal to date.
There is a focus on the title of the song (which usually acts as the chorus too) being belted out i.e. Holocaust, Final Loss, Holocaust and Sirens, Sirens, Hungry for Man Tonight, Sirens, Sirens, Claiming the sailors' lives etc and guitar solos. There are however a few melodical parts to the songs (particular in the ballad Lady in Disguise and the track I Believe) fitted in nicely, which would be used more and more as the band becomes more progressive. A nice early raw sound is shown in the tracks "Living for the Night" and "The Message" but it still sounds well produced.
There are a couple of songs however that seem a little too standard and lack a real bit of bite, an example of this would be Twisted Little Sister.
