"Dancing on Coals" is the second studio album by funk melodic rock band "Bang Tango" originally released in 1991, reissued in 2011 by `Metal Mind Productions'. The line up features lead singer Joe Leste, guitarists Mark Knight and Kyle Stevens, bassist Kyle Kyle and drummer Tigo Ketler.

Musically, "Dancing on Coals" proved a huge step forward for the band, effectively establishing a style and sound of their own. From their debut it became clear that "Bang Tango" had an attitude towards funk; on this second album the funky groove comes out more refined and in perfect alignment with the leading/melodic instruments of their sound. For that matter, the guitar parts are far more sophisticated than what found on their debut; very precise and clean on the rhythm parts and shredding during the solos. Not to mention that the vocal performance is considerably more disciplined with emphasis on the melodies and choruses.

It would be fair to say that the overall style of the band (both musical concept and image) was ahead of its time, blending a rather noir atmosphere with the groove of rock'n roll and the melodies and choruses of AOR. Such style would later become trademark for contemporary European glam/goth bands much like the "69 Eyes" and others. "Dancing on Coals" was indeed a unique album in its time, standing apart from the majority of the melodic hard rock scene.

Bang Tango - a hair metal band whose 1989 debut Psycho Cafe straddled the line between Poison's pop sensibilities and the Faster Pussycat/L.A. Guns sleaze rock sound - refined their sound considerably for their second album, 1991's Dancin' on Coals. The musicianship, which wasn't shabby in the first place, is tighter, Joe Leste's vocals are less raspy, and the direction of the album has moved from straight-up hair metal to a much more funk-oriented rock sound.

The result is a stronger overall album, but one without any notable "hits". All of the songs are decent, but none really stand out the way Breaking Up a Heart of Stone or Someone Like You did on Psycho Café. Still, it's hard not to like the new, funkier Bang Tango. They pull this kind Red Hot Chili Peppers lite sound off a lot better than bands like the Electric Boys or Mindfunk managed to do.

Dancin' on Coals is a very solid, very enjoyable, funk rock meets hair metal album that should please fans of either style of music, and should thrill fans of BOTH styles of music.

Kinda like a cross between the funky metal guitar and bass of the Infectious Grooves or Chili Peppers minus the humor, with glam metal vocals (Axel, Faster Pussycat). The ballads aren't that great, but the rockers kick..... Personal faves - Cactus Juice and Dancin' On Coals.

I am a big fan of funk like Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and early Faith No More. I'm not into hair. But, I love this album. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because of a couple ballads. Most of album rocks. This album doesn't have much of the typical 80's hair production sound. Thank God! This is truely funk rock, not hair. The singer is the closest thing to hair, but he sings sharp, tight, and funky. As a drummer, I can tell you that the rhythm section is tight and funky. The guitarist smoothly goes from funk to hard rock to an impressive solo. Ah man, this stuff is good.
I would recommend this album over their other album, Psycho cafe. The other album sounds much more like typical 80's hair. Especally the singer, he sounds more raunchy. It is a less funky album.
Go for it! Get the funk out!
