CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. NEVILLE SHUTE - Hey (I Love Ya)
  Really awful powerpop.
2. QUESTE - Fallen To Your Heart
  Amateur melodic metal. Not a bad song, but the sound quality is horrible.
3. YOUNG LOVE A.T.W. - In Between The Shadows
  Kind of like a hard rock version of MODERN ENGLISH.
4. SYRINX - Hold On
  Not sure if this was intentional, but the verses have this eerie prog metal feel while the chorus is pop/AOR.
5. BLIND AMBITION - Fight For Rock
  Amateur cross between proto-metal and glam.

Side B:
1. ROB KAYE - Soldiers Story
  Singer Rob Kaye of the band WITHOUT WARNING backed by the band TRIAL produce something which sounds like an overly screechy HEATHENS RAGE.
2. INTRUDER - Queen Of The Moonlight
  Not as heavy as you might think, this falls into the DOKKEN category of L.A. style metal.
3. KAMEO - Reach For The Sky
  Killer epic metal featuring Mike Dimeo (RIOT) on drums and lead vocals. He sounds a lot like Carl Sentence here.
4. GENGHIS KAHN - Real Steel
  No relation to the pre-TOKYO BLADE band obviously, though there are similarities in their raw IRON MAIDEN influenced sound.
5. DEEP FREEZE - Satin Flame
  Run of the mill hard rock/metal. Not the same DEEP FREEZE who appeared on the Ladykillers compilation.
