    Maple, sure, but not too Metal I'm afraid.

    Like with Moose Molten Metal it doesn't give a fair view on Canadian Metal as a whole. Label: Viper Records

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Side A:
    1. APPLE VIPER - Get Up
    80's party/stadium Hard Rock that just feels stale and anemic.
    2. GALLEON - What D'ya Want
    Melodic Metal with a NWOBHM-feel to it.
    3. HARLOTT - Angel In The Dark
    A nice, chugging midpacer which ends up more lightweight than needed thanx to the FM-rock production.
    4. HAVOC - The Warning
    Great, catchy & upbeat Metal the American way, like a poor man's GLACIER.
    5. JADE - Legends Of A Time
    Pretty forgettable melodic Metal/HR with fem vox, i.e. exactly like their albums.

    Side B:
    1. KID WIKKID - Take A Look At Me
    Slick, mainstream HR. For FM radio only.
    2. TITAN - Burnt By The Flame
    A rock-solid Metal lead that's hard not to like despite its lack of originality, especially in this environment. And REAL Metal lyrics too - thank you.
    3. TZAR - One Ticket To Paradise
    Nice rugged vocals to a mean, heavy hardrocker. Not sure if it's the same version as on their LP or not.
    4. RUE MORGUE - Goin' Down' Rockin'
    "Cruizin down the highway doin 105, got my baby beside me, she's coming alive.." <--that kind of hardrock.
    5. VIGILANTS - Run For Cover
    Bland, bandwagon radio-hr.

    Thank you!
    Vigilants is one of my favorite bands... some trivia on this song:
    The girl on the cover of this LP appears in their video for the song.
    In the same video there's Lee Aaron as special guest.
    In the video you can see poster from Razor, Killer Dwarf and Lee Aaron.
    Part of the video was used for a Maxell advertising in Canada!
