Review

I am not the biggest NwobHM Fan on earth, but this record really is worth grabbing it when seen. Very "metallic" for 1982, of course there are some 70ies influences, still it kicks some serious ass. Interesting lyrics like:
"We breathe the seeds of heaven - yet the scent of hell is sweet /
we chant of god immortal - yet we eat the devils meat..."
from >Choices<;
"While everyone is yearning to seek the ancient learning -
we stare into the darkness of mankind in his sleep,
they pray that they are righteous, but sadly they all lie to us -
and the solitary preacher ignores them as they weep"
from >Why don't you kill me?<
Rough, unpolished and powerful, an album not only recommend for NwobHM fans, it should also appeal to open-minded Power Metal Fans. Thumbs up!

This band is from Jersey and not to be confused with the other UK LEGEND (from Kent) or the US Cult Band that released "From the Fjords" 3 years earlier.
