    Can someone upload California Metal Vol. II [1988]? {EDIT} [Here Thanks to Theripper]
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Side A:

    1. BARREN CROSS - Deadlock [demo version, later released on the album 'Atomic Arena']
    Generic US metal with some decent 1990s Bruce Dickinson style vocals.
    2. GARDIAN - Marching On [from the 'Voyager' demo]
    The STRYPER influence is undeniable (they even have their own "armor of god"), but it is fairly well done at least. They later released several albums under the name GUARDIAN. This song was included as a bonus track on the CD version of First Watch.
    3. NEON CROSS - I Need Your Love [from the 'Frontline Life' demo]
    Totally bland riffing but with a half way decent chorus. Released as a bonus track on the CD reissue of their self-titled debut.
    4. HERO - I Surrender [exclusive track]
    Fast paced power metal similar in style to GLACIER, if a bit lacking in quality.
    5. DELIVERANCE - A Space Called You [exclusive track]
    Great power metal, this is one of their best tracks. Later released on both their Back in the Day: The First Four Years and Greetings of Death compilations.

    Side B:

    1. MASTEDON - Wasn't It Love [exclusive track]
    Studio project of former KANSAS members. The lightest band on here, it's not quite glam but close. Released as a bonus track on the It's A Jungle Out There! CD reissue.
    2. GARDIAN - Spiritual Warfare [from the 'Voyager' demo]
    A heavier track that shows some promise, but a cumbersome chorus holds it back. Later released on their Kingdom Of Rock 1982-1989 compilation.
    3. DELIVERANCE - Attack [exclusive track]
    Dispensing with most of the power metal elements shown A Space Called You, they offer up another great song but this time in an aggressive thrash metal style. Rerecorded on What A Joke, and later released on both their Back in the Day: The First Four Years and Greetings of Death compilations.
    4. HERO - Sing It Out [exclusive track]
    A decent effort, though a bit more commercial than their other track.
    5. NEON CROSS - Son Of God [from the 'Frontline Life' demo]
    The worst kind of Christian metal: generic music with preachy lyrics and even a ridiculous spoken dialog. Released as a bonus track on the CD reissue of their self-titled debut.
