    Ahhh man, I remember when I first heard these guys. It was the track "Vision of Life", and I was hooked ever since. Anywho, what I bring to you all today is my rip of the first and only album by melodic-heavy hard rock duo Spyke, which was self-titled. Despite having everything they needed, one would assume that an act like Spyke would be a major 90's player in mainstream hard rock in Japan, but, sadly, that's not the case. Despite the push, such as the entire album being produced by iconic metal musician Nobuhiko Sato (佐藤宣彦) and being promoted by established Keisuke Tsukimitsu (月光恵亮), who went on to work with artists (up to Spyke's point) like Judy and Mary, Cobra, Ziggy and the groundbreaking gamechanging new wave band Boowy, it seemed all odds were against the charismatic hard rockers, which makes finding their stuff a pain, especially their album. Spyke's sound was as thrilling as it got, with elements of melodic 80's hard rock intertwined with guilty pleasure-dated mid 90's arena rock revivalists of the early and mid 90's like Enuff Z'Nuff and Danger Danger. The guitar shredding of Hironori Morikawa (森川浩憲) and guttural, heart-in-throat wails of vocalist Hiroyuki Shibata (柴田浩之) make Spyke a strong recommendation to fans of melodic, driving hard rock all across the board.

    Are you sure about bitrate? There are wma files in an archive. And archive size is too big for 320 kbps looks more like lossless.
    But I'm not familiar with wma maybe the format has such size for 320 kbps bitrate files.

    That's definitely lossless. Probably just a typo in this submission.

    For me this album sounds as something from power metal branch. Reminds me japanese power metal bands.
