    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    The first 2 songs I recorded off of a radio show called "Metallic Overdrive" at the end of December 1985. The show was on here in Rochester, NY on 90.5 WGMC-FM. The band is from Rochester and they play a heavy/power metal style not unlike Fallen Angel at the time, too. These 2 songs come from a 1985 demo and I also shared them on youtube so you'll find a link below. The 3rd song is the band's 1st original song from early '85. They were a coverband before that. The next 2 songs come from a 1986 demo, and the final song is a live track from 1987. This is a super obscure band. I can't find any info on their demo's and if I am missing tracks or not. This is a piecing together of everything by the band I could find. But the 1st 2 songs I heard way back in late '85 and were one of the early bands I first heard. The second track is a much better anthemic song of metal greatness. The '86 demo tracks continue on in their heavy/power metal style. The live track continues without relent.

    Enjoy.

    SUPERB stuff, all songs, varying in approach, sometimes more catchy and other very heavy and with high vocals... Bring to my mind great bands like TENSION-DEUCE, SHOK PARIS, RUFFIANS, VILLAIN and even BARREN CROSS a bit!! A must!! MIKAEL, MEGA THANX MAN!!! porosimetal

    I'm Vinny Cavuoto, former Bassist in Fantom.

    I can help fill in the gaps for the demo information:

    The track listing for the 1985 demo was 1. 5 Star Lover, 2. Still In Love With You, 3. Battlecry and 4. High Speed Attraction. The first 3 songs are on youtube. The band members on this demo are: Dave Calarco-Vocals, Paul Blocchi and Dave Rowlands-Guitar, Vinny Cavuoto-Bass and Mike Maenza-Drums.

    The track listing for the 1986 demo was 1. Rock Me All Night, 2. Take On The Action, 3. Count Me Out and 4. End Of the Line. Songs 1, 3 and 4 are on youtube. The line up was the same except Johnny Q. replaced Dave Rowlands on Guitar for this demo.

    Mikael-on behalf of me and the rest of the guys thanks for uploading our songs and for taking the time to post our info!
    Panos-thank you for your kind words.
