    '' The original record was released independently by the band in 1990. The music here falls somewhere between classic heavy metal, speed metal and thrash. The band rides that border not unlike early Metal Church or the first Helloween and Flotsam & Jetsam albums. However, don't expect them to sound like any of these bands. They have a unique sound that is all their own, led by the strong vocals of Par Ståle Pettersen. He has an incredible voice for this type of metal. He's sings in a high, clean style but has enough grit and gravel in his voice to keep him from sounding like a typical power metal clone. The album begins with an intro that sounds like something you might expect from early Helloween before bursting into "Transylvania", an excellent speed metal song that sets the pace for the entire LP. From this point on, the entire album is solid with each song complimenting the next. There are the usual peaks and valleys that add to the overall enjoyment, such as the melodic introduction to "The Whore of Babylon", or the blinding speed of "Enola Gay".
    I find it hard to believe that this LP, was an independent release. It is an absolutely essential album that really does rival albums like "Metal Church" and "Walls of Jericho" for the speed metal crown. ''

    Review of the LP was taken from No Life 'til Metal.

    Rare piece of vinyl!
    A good friend of mine (Thank you Stelios), lent me this rare vinyl to rip it!
    He bought it back in 1997 for 500 δραχμές = 1,5 euros (!!!), and now its price is 150 euros, according to Jan Svanhill's catalogue!
    Once again, I have removed all pops, clicks, hiss and initial noise!
    Incredible independent release!!!


    ENJOY METAL SUPREMACY!!!
