Review

Maybe the easiest to find Knighmare II shape imo, and even musicially they are far away this time from classic Horror stuff such as "Guillotine" or "Death to us part". It's still Heavy Metal, don't worry, but the glammy spirit has possessed them this time a little bit more than on the previous stuff although they are still playing that pounding Metal but the remarkable refrains are sadly missing here. Also Rotten Rod reminds on both tracks a bit to Rob Halford while "Heart of stone" in general could be any mid 80's JUDAS PRIEST number too. Especially "Downtown Brown" is totally rooted in the L.A. scene, 2 almost silly tunes on this once again one sided shape which both seems to be featured just on this shape and weren't used for "The edge of knight" anymore. Not their best moments but collectable stuff for sure. To complete your personal Knightmare II collection you won't have any chance to ignore this one at all.
