Review

Melbourne metal band issued on the same label as other Aussie sought after collectable S.A.S., Renegade, Taipan. A raw production follow up to the Death Wish EP released 3 years previous sees the band encompassing thrash (Dogs of War), melodic moments (No Tomorrow, Guardian), double kick (War Heads, This Is War), traditional elements (Grey Slayer, The Dark, Thousand Years Gone) & mellow bits (Sir Megma, Damaged). The title track & a faithful rendition of S.O.D.'s Freddy Kruger are indicative to the musical path the band were headed down (thrash) before disbanding, guitarist Wooley to later take rank in Hobbs Angel Of Death. Certainly one of the earliest exponents of the style in Oz land.
