Review

What we have year is a post-NWoBHM masterpiece in the vain of Cloven Hoof ("A sultan's ransom" period) Wild Pussy and Slander. In other words, this band although founded in Wales sounds much more like a US metal band than a UK band. There is no bad song in this LP but only great tunes like "Hungry for blood" and "Abuser". It is not rare so grab it without second thought !! One year later they released their second and last LP.

Irgendwie ist diese Band immer an mir vorbei gegangen und ich weiß nicht warum. Wir haben einen hervorragenden Sänger, starke melodische Metal-Songs und den typischen Ebony-Sound über den wir mal den Mantel des Schweigens breiten. Über die Songs nicht. Das war eine vollkommen unterbewertete Band, die es leider nur auf zwei Alben brachte. Sehr schade! Absolut empfehlenswert! (Stefan Riermaier)
