Review

Surprisingly superb Metal on this poser-like appearing record! They do only look like Posers, but their steel was american influenced (non-british) sounding powerful Melodic Metal, definitely not what you can expect by a common british band. It still takes my breath away when I think about "Hammer to the heart", quite outstanding pounding DOKKEN/LION-ish style, rough, a bit raunchy yet melodic vocalist, american style choruses, non-british guitar playing, solos that burn thru your ears, heavy as fuck production. Belongs to every collection!


Just a note at the end, there are different editions available, the white sleeve cover is a private edition on Hammer Records with the 4 tracks mentioned below, the Poser-pic cover is a german pressing made in 1990 with "All in the name of Rock" missing but instead is featuring 2 versions of "Don't wait (until tomorrow)". That version is quite problemlessly to grab everywhere, but for the first pressing the story looks completely different.

Tracks
All in the name of Rock
Fatal attraction
Hammer to the heart
Don't you wait
