    Side A:

    1. MERCYFUL FATE - Black Funeral
    Hopefully this classic needs no introduction. However, here we have a rare demo version which is every bit as good as the LP version. This was MERCYFUL FATE's first ever vinyl appearance.
    2. TANTRUM - You Won't Live Forever
    AC/DC-ish hard rock.
    3. SCIMITAR - That's The Way I Want It
    Welsh band with early IRON MAIDEN sound.
    4. TAROT SUTRA - The Fool
    Great song that sounds a lot like SCORPIONS' Polar Nights.
    5. MEAN MACHINE - Gods & Devils
    Fairly traditional NWOBHM sound, but the eccentric vocals remind me of Dave McDonough (DEEP SWITCH) or even Dave Halliday (RACE AGAINST TIME moreso than HELL).
    6. CONFESSOR - Secrets
    Enjoyable thrashy song with some very interesting use of keyboards. Singer/bassist Krys Mason later joined CHATEAUX.
    7. JURY - Don't Go
    A catchy chorus and a nice beat make it easy to forgive the funky break in the middle of this 70s rocker.

    Side B:

    1. WELLS FARGO - Hellride
    WELLS FARGO show that the Dutch can do NWOBHM too with this energetic number.
    2. MERCINARY - Not The Time
    Unremarkable NWOBHM.
    3. WIKKYD VIKKER - Super Rocker
    Decent song that sounds quite a lot like BITCHES SIN.
    4. PENTAPUS - Breakout
    I'm pretty sure there were plenty of good band names left in 1982, so who knows how they ended up with this one. Thankfully the song is better, sounding a bit like PARALEX.
    5. DETROIT - USA Lights
    This is the only really bad song on here, which is quite a feat for an Ebony compilation. They were clearly trying for an American hard rock sound but they failed. Singer Andy Pyke later joined MARSHALL LAW.
    6. MOBY DICK - Can't Have My Body Tonight
    Most notable for having Max Bacon (NIGHTWING, BRONZ, GTR) on vocals. He sounds like a young Rob Halford on this standard hard rock song.

    Thanks for this. I, too, thought that Detroit's USA Light is the worst song here.. that is, before listening to the whole song. Don't be fooled by the average USA style hard rock part at the beginning.. because after 2 minutes and about 11 seconds, the song becomes a heavy proto-thrash rocker! (metal2)
