Customer Review

on 29 March 2007
A blast from back in the days when guitars were called axes, fans wore denim and leather, and the song title 'Son of a Bitch' was considered offensive and rebellious.
If that makes you smirk, perhaps this isn't a record for you. If, on the other hand you have just come over a little nostalgic and misty-eyed, you should have a closer look.
This is a classic 80s HM release, with rasping, high vocals, simple riff-based song structures, and that innocent, basic, rock guitar sound from pre-Metallica days. You can certainly hear a bit of early Iron Maiden in there. It is amazing to think that this sort of music used to send parents into despair.
Breaker and (particularly) Son of a Bitch are the standout tracks, and if you ignore the 2 ballads (which Germans in general have always been quite good at), the rest rock more than respectably too. As a bonus, Axe fans will drool at the vintage twin-axework and excellent twiddly solos.
This is one of those albums, which when you play them, you wonder why you don't play them more often. Undemanding and very enjoyable.
