Review

What we have here is a rare as hell record from Germany. 5 tracks with a length of about half an hour and no one lets you down. Typical mid eighties German Metal with some above-average vocals and amazing guitar work. When you listen to the first track, hearing the vocals of singer Sven Strzyso, who later (1988) joined the band RAGE HEART and released Too late to return”, you might think of another just okay piece of Metal, but as soon as the guitars of Andreas Sieling and Manfred David make your ears bleed, you know for sure, that this record is worth its money. The same goes to the second track. Track number three comes along with a slight epic feeling. I wouldn’t compare this record with the sheer power of a band like ACCEPT, it’s more like the melodic tunes a’ la BLACK FATE. All in all this is a highly recommended collector’s item for all lovers of German Metal. Get it when you can!

Tracks
If heaven cancels light
The proud, the few and the great
Can remember your name
At Vietnam
Raid over Moscow
