    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cassette only compilation of bands from the Tampa Bay area in Florida. Produced by Keith Collins (ex-bassist for SAVATAGE). Label: ME Records. http://www.thecorroseum.com/comps/tampa ... aries.html
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Side A:
    1. KEITH KOLLINS KRUNCH - Amplified Homicide
    Keith Collins does a good job sounding like his former band. The biggest flaw is that singer is no Jon Oliva.
    2. OBLIVION - Rivothead
    Ripping speed/thrash with great varied vocals.
    3. CAMELOT - Breaking The Silence
    Later became the famous Kamelot, though this sounds almost nothing like that. Excellent but demo quality power/prog like early HEIR APPARENT.
    4. THUNDER - Cutthroat
    Sounds like early METAL CHURCH but not as good.
    5. BLACKKOUT - Dead And Gone
    Awesome, albeit demo quality, power/thrash with a slightly eerie atmosphere.
    6. HALIFAX - Majesta
    Awesome power/prog, almost sounds like a predecessor to the symphonic power metal bands of the 90s yet retains the power that so many of them lack.
    7. SDT - Death In The Family
    Rough US metal with a cool goth/punk vibe to keep it interesting.
    8. OSIRIS - Very Scary Mortuary
    Goofy crossover thrash that could be amusing once or twice. Would have fit better on the Grindcrusher compilation.

    Side B:
    1. MESIAXX - Island Of The Enchantress
    Aggressive power/thrash, but the raw production and a slight 70s influence on the guitars bring to mind BROCAS HELM.
    2. SIREN - Murder At Midnight
    Awesome original metal that would have been right at home on their No Place Like Home LP.
    3. DIRTY VIRGIN - Justice
    Capable SAVATAGE clones.
    4. ARSENAL - Make No Provision
    Slow, ominous Christian doom with female vocals. Great stuff but be warned that their CD is nothing like this track which was recorded back in 1985.
    5. FESTER - Innoculation Override
    Slightly technical thrash with clean vocals that brings to mind a more accessable VOIVOID.
    6. ICED EARTH - Dracula
    Demo quality song that is like a cross between their debut and SANCTUARY. Same singer as debut (Gene Adam). Also note that this is a completely different song to the one with the same name on their Horror Show CD.

    One of my favorite compilations ever! I've always wondered if the Messiaxx (or Mesiaxx) recorded anything besides the song that appears on this compilation.

    Great post, by the way!
