    Info & Tracklist:
    http://www.thecorroseum.com/comps/metalmassacre2.html

    Side A:

    1. ARMORED SAINT - Lesson Well Learned
    ARMORED SAINT's very first recording is a NWOAHM classic that would define their sound. Later appeared on their debut EP.
    2. 3RD STAGE ALERT - Mind Invader
    This band reminds me of ALCATRAZZ, though on this killer track they have more of an epic feel. Included as bonus track on cassette and Japanese CD versions.
    3. SURGICAL STEEL - Rivit Head
    Straightforward but very well done JUDAS PRIEST inspired metal.
    4. OBSESSION - Shadows Of Steel
    None of the commercial sound of their later releases is present here, just pure metal.
    5. SAVAGE GRACE - Scepters Of Deceit
    Could have been great catchy speed metal in the vein of their later material, but the goofy high pitched vocals throughout the second half of the song really kill it.
    6. OVERKILL - No Holds Barred
    Decent hardcore/metal crossover. Later changed their name to OVERKILL L.A. for obvious reasons.

    Side B:

    1. WARLORD - Lucifer's Hammer
    Awesome epic power metal. Different to both the EP and LP versions.
    2. TRAUMA - Such A Shame
    Cliff Burton's only recording before getting picked up by METALLICA. Good but unspectacular NWOAHM.
    3. DIETRICH - It's Alright
    No frills hard rock/heavy metal.
    4. MOLTEN LEATHER - Inversion
    Totally forgettable metal.
    5. HYKSOS - The Kings
    Horrible vocals ruin this otherwise enjoyable 70s JUDAS PRIEST style song.
    6. ALOHA - Heavy Metal Virgin
    Great proto-speed metal song with Marty Friedman (MEGADETH) on lead guitar and Lisa Ruiz on vocals. Formerly known as VIXEN, they would later become HAWAII.

    Thank you very much! I have been trying to find this compilation for ages after I heard it on YouTube a few years ago. I love "Rivit Head" and "Such A Shame", they're brilliant. It's a pity that none of these bands made it big. I had no idea that there was a track with Marty Friedman on this! I'm quite curious about "Scepters Of Deceit" if it has high pitched vocals.
