Review

Well, this band hadn't much luck. At the time when this album was produced / released (1987-1990) Thrash Metal wave was very popular in Poland, so the label and management pushed them to play in such style, and that's why we can hear a lot of Speed and Thrash influences on this LP. But all those who knows their non-album tracks (several demos were recorded) realise, that Stos was a Classic Heavy Metal band. I dare to say we can put them in one line with Acid and Warlock - not only because of the female vocalist, but also because of their style. Album was released on the vinyl LP only, and as far as I know there is no chance for the official re-release (bootleg would be fantastic gift for all the Stos maniacs, don't you think?). More about the band at their official website (yes, guys are still active!) at www.stos-metal.cjb.net
