Review

Seems like anyone has digged out a bunch of these records recently. You hardly saw this album offered earlier but since last year some copies were offered at ebay for quite some money. I myself found my copy sealed in Germany for almost nothing compared to the ebay prices the other copies reached that I've seen. The band hailed from New Orleans it seems and was still undecided about their own style. This may explain the 50:50 split of melodic Heavy Metal songs like the nice opener and other almost (funky) Rock music expressing garbage that the album suffers from. Moreover the production is demo alike (bit like DARK KNIGHT - sound not style!) and the vocalist has a hardly bearable slightly girlish voice that doesn't make their creations sounding better. Not sure what to think about it, but wouldn't advice anyone to spend let's say 60 $ for it because you'll feel pissed off! The Metal tracks are listenable and solos turned out to be fucking Metal as well but these would have been enough to release a nice MLP, not a whole album with mostly qualitative negative fillers. Decide yourself, though their style was kinda unique, rather unexplainable.

Tracks
Blade runner
Nowhere to run
I want you back
Goodbye now
Never drop out
Fight for your life
Spend the night
Don't let your dreams fade
