I missed out on this album the first time round but thanks to this rerelease I get a chance to hear this Athens, Georgia band’s album. Not all is REM in Athens. There are/were some cool metal bands too in the south. This is to me power metal in the early Helloween school. You know the kind. Up-tempo and with a strong melodic sense. Add a tad progressive to the mix and you get a band that sounds more European than American. I’ve loved Helloween ever since that first M-LP and anything that sounds even slightly like them immediately gets two thumps up. This is no exception. Don’t know why I missed out on it the first time around but this deserves to be discovered. Anders Ekdahl
