Review

I'm sure if they'd have pressed this 7" as a 12" they'd have got alot more recognition. Still a bit underrated and almost unknown 7"EP imo. Ohio US Metal that in places crosses the threshold of the Power Metal genre like f.e. on "Ridin high" or the title track but keeping a slightly melodic edge and offers well worked out refrains. Their vocalist Aaron Wallace convinces with a similar hoarse voice like Mike Munro and hints of Michael Jackson (of SATAN/PARIAH naturally) while a bunch of killer yet virtuous guitar solos aren't missed at all. There's no reason to hesitate if you ever see a copy offered. Their later releases never reached the class of this 7" again!
