    Info:
    "This New Wave Of British Heavy Metal band never achieved the greatness a band that sells 15,000 singles in 20 days deserves. They were formed in 1976 in South Shields, England by school friends John Roach (guitar, vocals), Maurice Bates (rhythm guitar, vocals), Pete Melsom (bass), and Drummer Kenny Anderson. Vince High (vocals) and replacement drummer Barry Hopper were recruited in 1978, as the band built up a following on the North East pub and club circuit, alongside acts such as Raven, White Spirit, Axe (later Fist), Son of a Bitch (later Saxon) and Geordie. A self financed EP, Death and Destiny, was released on Guardian Records in 1979, and proved to be one of the most outstanding records of the era. Roach left in February 1980, and was replaced by Mick Rundell, Their debut EP was reissued on Street Beat Records to coincide with the band's appearance at the Bingley Hall festival with Motothead. It, too, sold well and their battle cry of 'Death and Destiny' was sung by a thousand voices at the aformentioned gig. However, by 1981 their name was absent from the live listings, leaving the EP to command a high collectors' value and cult reputation. Metallica fans should track it down to see how much Kill 'Em All owes to this band. The British Steel label re-released the EP, with additional bonus tracks, in 1998." (Encyclopedia of Heavy Rock)

    This wonderful four tracker was first released on the essential Guardian Records label in 1979. Lots were pressed after a very small and unidentifiable first edition of a meager 200. Not too many came with the amazing picture sleeve. Then, Street Beat Records repressed it on the luxury and popular 12″ format and on 7″ again, with one song (“Overlord”) left off. Again, not all copies, neither 7″ or 12″, have the ps which is printed on poshy thick paper.
