This U.S band is a real mix up. A blend of thrash, power metal and NWOBHM styles. The music is pretty heavy, with very crunchy guitars and reminds me alot of a heavier HOLOCAUST or CLOVEN HOOF with a harder edge. The vocals by Mike Villamena are what really make this great, sung in the classic NWOBHM style, they add an angry youth feeling that makes so many of these records awesome. This sounds much older than 89. Many of these songs were previously on the album "As for me , as for you (1988)" in different versions, but the album featured here is of far Superior recording quality and performance. Some of this shows these dudes pushing into thrashier territory with some faster playing and meaner riffs, but they had to already be throwbacks by 1989 so this couldn't have been that popular. Since death metal was about to take complete control of the metal scene and well all know what happened after that. So I'm pretty sure most kids at the time thought this was old hat. Still this is a great if not classic piece of vinyl for fans of NWOBHM, early thrash and power metal. This is a hell of alot better than any new school retro band your gonna put down your hard earned money for, so check it out!
