Formed in 1979 and split sometime after 1981, this U.S. obscurity features a pre-CARNIVORE Peter Steele and other members of CARNIVORE, AGNOSTIC FRONT, AGGRESSION and ORIGINAL SIN. Don't let that confuse you though, this is straight up classic metal. At first I really thought the keyboards were just too much, but now after repeat listens I think they fucking rule, their cheesy as hell but they rule. This is pretty straight forward shit and Mr.Steele's vocals are awesome, however this lacks some of the sheer hatred of CARNIVORE, but the sleazy element is still intact. First up is the song "Rock hard",its a total classic and like I said before the keyboard is so cheap and cheesy that its almost shocking, this one also has a weird SABBATH type ballad break down in it for some reason, pretty damn great I must say. Next is the b-side "Batteries not included", though not as immediately awesome as the a-side, it's still a good track that actually hints at some of the TYPE O NEGATIVE sound, then it kicks into a more metal jam with some cool solo parts and back down to low gear.I just got to say that I fucking love this cover, what a great idea, tits and gasmasks, can it be that simple? A great single for sure, check it out.
