Review

Second vinyl output, unbelievable fresh and powerful Melodic Speed/Power Metal, reminds strongly on ancient HELLOWEEN, and is just as great!
All 3 tracks on this 1-sided Maxi are fast, furious and played with loads of passion. Not a perfect sound, not perfect musicians, not even a real cover (only black/white insert) but they had fun and believed in what they were doing, you can clearly hear that, no matter what track you are playing. These guys had metal in there veins, they never gained much attention, but who cares?
When you have the chance, get LOST IN A DREAM, it's a perfect example of german Melodic Speed Metal. Also try to get the debut-LP WHO DARES WINS, another great release! The later releases are not that fantastic anymore, still above average.
