Review

This band from New Mexico had all the elements to be categorised in the crossover metal style along with bands like IMPECCABLE or LOOSELY TIGHT. Strongly influenced by NWoBHM groups of the time VOLTZ offered a quite good record with dynamic riffs and solos that will please all the funs of early US metal sound. Unfortunately, both this LP and their single very rarely turn up making them one of the most obscure metal items from USA.
