Review

The US Metal underground scene is full of still undiscovered Hard Rock and Heavy Metal bands that privately produced records by themselves. One of those records we have here, I've never seen it anywhere nor heard anyone talking about it. The label says the EP had been produced already in 1982 while the release year was 1983. To find such early Hard'n'Heavy vinyls is pretty difficult. The band seems to be from Omaha, at least the songs were recorded there. There are 4 tracks featured, 3 are average 70's influenced midtempo Hard/Heavy Rock with a typical 70's feeling but cool guitars solos in the background of each song. For sure they knew how to play guitars but perhaps their musically background was more in the late 70's. Also the vocals are far away from being heavy but standable. Just "Tidal Waves" is falling totally out of the scheme, so it has a bluesy feeling and it's partly pure Rock music. US Metal collectors should maybe keep their eyes open...but musicially itÂ’s just below average!
