Review

Not to be confused with the posers Tora Tora that released "Surprise attack" in 1989 or the british band with that name, these Tora!Tora! seemed to hail from Illinois, at least the contact/label/management address says so while the album was recorded in Iowa. Although their Metal wasn't that heavy too, but their main talent was certainly to compose melodic US Metal songs with a very few NWOBHM hints that could get even airplay at any radio station while the basic heavyness didn't got lost at all. "Made in America" is a Melodic Metal album par excellence for fans of that genre, lead by the superior vocal arrangements of the curlyhaired and bearded Jerry Allen. There's also a german edition of this record on Zyx available, but the US version on Frizz Bee Records is the original one.

Feel it!
You and me
Yours tonight
On the brink
In the night
Don't hesitate
Breakin' away
Man of generations
