At least 2 bands have been known as Sons of Angels:
1) A now defunct Swedish/Norwegian band fronted by Hans Olav Solli
2) The Japan-based band currently known as crush 40
Sons of Angels is a Norwegian/Swedish hard rock band that were active in the end of the 80's and the beginning of the 90's, featuring Hans Olav Solli on vocals, Staffan Willaim-Olsson on guitars, bassplayer Torstein, keyboardplayer Lars Kilevold (nowdays most known for Norwegian TV commercial songs) and drummer Geir Digernes.
They originally released only one album, "Sons Of Angels", in 1990 with the song "Cowgirl" on it, a song that went to be a major hit both in Europe and America before the grunge made the band split up. However, in 2001, the band released another album, "Slumber With The Lion", mostly from old recordings.
Notably vocalist Solli went on to other, mostly short-lived, bands such as Psycho Motel (a project or iron maiden's adrian smith), 21 Guns (a project of thin lizzy's Scott Gorham) and Cat Eye.
