Review

A rather rare private pressing is the only effort of these MORPHEUS from Italy. Bad tongues say it sounds the same as the cover looks like and well, they are right. Even though "We cannot lose the last race" sounds similar to AXE MASTER's "Rock forever" (Don't get this in the wrong throat!) and especially their vocalist delivers the same badass vocal style but there's a bit more than just a quantum of class missing on "Metal heart" to become a good Metal album. The usual pretty playful italian style is missing as well, moreover there's that pounding ACCEPTish rhythm ruling the game with a touch of AC/DC perhaps and the songwriting...forget it! Below average Metal from the gutter where only the guitar solos appear as a single flash light. Thank goat I got it cheap (in Italy), under no circumstances pay more than 10 E for the obscure rarity that it truly is, the music is "unter aller Sau"!
