Review

Quite nice pounding US Metal that won't hurt anyones ears is what New York do offer on this MLP. Besides the pounding stuff with several glammy influences there's also a couple of some fine twin leads spread on the vinyl as well. Fortunately the vocalist does not even try to imitate Vince Neil, so there's not a single reason why you shouldn't get his mini album at all, especially since we're talking about 5-10 $ here. There are 2 versions available and both came with totally different front and back sleeve - one being white and the other one black, while the black one has a band pic sketch on the back sleeve and the white version features the liberty statue on the back sleeve. There's much worse shit available for alot more money.



Schöne Melodic Metal Scheibe, deren Highlight der Ohrwurm "Teas'r" ist. Gibt's normal mit der Freiheitsstatue aufm Cover, mein Exemplar ist eine Promo des allseits beliebten Dream Records Label. Kein Wunder, dass man nie wieder was von New York gehört hat... Da das Teil aber nicht besonders teuer ist, sollte man bei Gelegenheit und Gefallen an melodischem Stoff zuschlagen.
