Review

Here's one of the top rarities of US metal and one of the mysteries that was recently solved as usually the collectors that know some information don't want to make it public. This band was from Dayton, Ohio and had a very short life recording only this home made LP in a bedroom converted as a studio! They probably made this record for themselves and some friends as the effort is quite amateurish. Musically is not bad and I would say that songs like "Loki" have a strange psych feeling but nobody can say this LP is a killer! Overall it's a nice addition to any collection if you don't sell your house to buy it but you know that top rarities and editions of 100 copies (e.g. MILITIA, AMETHYST, LIQUID EARTH etc.) easily surpass $1000.
