Review

All US Metal collectors that think they have all the great rarities of the scene and they don't own this LP they should immediately reconsider their beliefs because they simply miss one of the best private metal records of the 80s. With sound similar to Angelwitch, Tytan, Traitors Gate and Virtue this Bad Axe (totally different band from the canadian act) manage to possess the listener from first to last minute. Bombastic metal anthems like "The ice queen", "All the dead magicians" and the absolute metal killer "The last knight" will leave you stunned and wondering how this band is possible to be so obscure. Unfortunately, there is no information about the origin of the band and no clue of contact address so I suppose this band will remain a mystery at least for the time being. Metalheads chase it until the depths of hell!!
