Review

This band from Finland released one of the best LPs of the scandinavian metal scene. Strongly influenced by NWoBHM, they sound pretty much as a UK band. Actually, this LP was their last effort as the had already released two 7" singles earlier the same year with the LP release ("rock n' roll priest/touch me" & "soldier of the world/nuclear nightmare"). All the songs have quality and none of them will dissapoint you although there is one song that alone can make this record a must for everybody: "Soldier of the world"!!! One of the best songs in metal history, yes, you've read right...
