Sweet Savage's music is a mixture of hard rock & heavy metal, with its heaviness of two guitars, thundering bass & powerhouse drums. However, even though they were often considered among the forerunners of the NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) movement, success eluded them and they disbanded shortly after 1982.

Def Leppardguitarist Vivian Campbell. Sweet Savage recorded an EP with Vivian, and later recorded the full length albums "Killing Time" and "Rune" after Vivian Campbell left the band.

The current line up of Ray Haller, Speedo Wilson, Trevor Fleming & Jules Watson has been cited as being 'the strongest version of the band' by the industry professionals and as frontman Ray Haller explains 'All this interest lately, has come out of the blue and it's phenomenal how well the band is being received by everyone. We played Germany for the first time recently and were surprised to hear the kids singing out tunes back to us, we really had no idea how popular the band are'.
