Review

I must anticipate: I have no informations about this obscure private released single! So let's get straigth to the music itself: Both tracks offer very good 80ies Power with an edge of Speed Metal, good guitarwork, the soundquality also is good, the vocals are typical for the german metal of the mid/late 80ies, not outstanding but perfectly fitting to the music. >Screams and Thunder< is more midtempo based with a nice chorus ("...Screams and Thunder - that's the voice of war; Screams and Thunder - pain and death for all...") and a lot of power. >Evil Attack< is pure Speed Metal with some "nightmarish" lyrics (as far as I understand) and this track will not let you sitting still any longer, ha ha!
This single has been distributed at live-gigs (only?), I have no idea how many copies had been pressed but I don't think that it were more than a few hundrets. This piece of steel really is forgotten as it seems and I can not even tell the exact year of release, guess it was around 86 - 88 maybe. There is no address or any other helpful information printed on the back of the sleeve so many secrets around this band remain and maybe never will be lifted...
