Review

Without any doubts this is one of the most attractive shapes that's available for money. Alone the idea to use a form of a bat makes my little comrade pulsating. Not quite sure on which label this one was released but it can't be on Rauchus Records as MA stated coz the catalogue number on the label sticker says HUR S-1 while the first Rauchus Records release was Knightmare II's 7"EP in 1984 and either on the "Death do us part" MLP there's not such a number mentioned so I suppose it's one of Dave T. Richards side labels. Unfortunately I don't have the insert to say more about it but it appears at one of his lists that was included in the Mersinary LP. Viewed from the musicial side there's the typical US Metal featured that appears to include a glammy feeling although this band is far away lyrically seen from being Glam. They've always been a classic Horror Metal act during their whole existance. "Razor love" also appeared on the "Death do us part" MLP released the same year, a real little earworm with kinda girlie refrain while the "Metal massacre" was arranged as such musicially, maybe the fastest track that Knightmare II ever recorded (I'm missing their fullenght). Classic speedy Power Metal that's also featured on "The edge of knight" their only fullenght released many years later but I'm not sure if it's the same version. Alone for "Metal massacre" this piece is a must to have!
