Review

Only a handful of (not exactly cheap priced) copies of this 7" surfaced so far, so you may expect a smaller pressung of 500 copies or perhaps even less, though I'm not convinced yet that the price is standing in the right relation with the musical content. Nevertheless both trax are a quite listenable early Metal/Hard Rock mix, with "Demon's gate" being the heavier driving number of both with the flipside track ranking not too far behind. The material is catchy with even epic hints on "Magic touch" in a typical Euro style (no NWOBHM hints in other words) and the female vocals are pretty remarkable this time because the girl had a strong and clear voice, I wanna say no Doro-style brawler stuff or other well known weak german female cry-babies. Could be a real surprise for german Metal collectors, though I said it above, the price is a little barrier for those with mostly empty pockets like myself.
