Band information

Black Alice was a Perth heavy metal band from the early 1980s that sounded like Judas Priest. The group picked up some interest from RCA who sponsored their recording session in Singapore and released the album internationally before it was made available in Australia. It was not a particular success and Black Alice effectively ceased to be shortly afterward.

In 1988 Page and Hartley revived the band with help from Cichon and Johnston from Rose Tattoo to provide the soundtrack for the film Sons of Steel in which Hartley starred.

Page formed Trilogy in 1984 with two former members of Saracen and later did extensive session work including two Angus McDeth albums and in the mid-90s formed a cover band called Black and Blue that evolved into Black Steel.
