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



Side A:
1. THE LORD & NIGEL FOXXE'S INC. - Great Balls Of Fire
  Novelty Metal-version beginning & ending with some unfunny dialogue.
2. DIGITAL DREAMS - The Edge
  aor.
3. DANGER CROSS - Only Death Is Real
  Sounds like a junior-high, early Sodom tribute band. Funny.
4. NIGHTMARE - The Dark (Nightmare)
  Very crude, grunting Metal. Hard to tell if they're aiming for a Death SS- or Megadeth-sound, but I'm sure someone somewhere will dub them "cult band!" on first listen.
5. VOMIT - Leprosy
  More Hellhammer and less Voivod than their awesome "Sickness.." demo. Old Kvlt BM fans take note.

Side B:
1. ANALOG DREAMS - Metal Thunder
  Annoingly slick melodic HR/Metal(?) with ugly, not-in-the-least analog drums & keys. "Plastic Drizzle" more like it..
2. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - Wild City
  Bland & untight girl-fronted Metal-light.
3. MYSTERY - Mystery
  Zzzuper-silly keys but good rock guitars. Pretty wimpy & generic stuff, but I wouldn't quite call it aor.
4. IFC - Burst Out Crying
  Pop (!?)
5. VAAL - Necrology
  Pounding Dio/Anvil-style Metal anthem that probably sounds better here than on a comp with better competitors.

Side C:
1. ANGEL HEART - The Reason I Survive
  Schmallad.
2. ECSTASIS - Ecstasis
  Clumsy nonsense-Metal. In one ear...
3. BLOWING FREE - Rock'n'Roll
  Punk rock (!? again..)
4. ANXIETY - Join The Army
  Crap moms-garage Hard Rock with out-of-tune guitars.
5. THUNDERBIRD - My Girl
  Slow, very amateurish HR.

Side D:
1. BRAINSTORM - Blood Stained Cross
  Speed Metal w/ hc-vocals.
2. CRUSH - Kingdom Of The Kings
  A lighter, more unpolished version of their LP title track to be. Still a mighty & superb Heavy Metal anthem and perhaps Greek Metal's finest moment.
3. GLADIATORS - Gladiators
  Generic Speed/Heavy. Same old sloppy performance, which almost makes them sound like a melodic punk band.
4. WARNING - The Promised Land
  There's something disarming about neo-classical stuff played really bad. (I'm almost tempted to use the word "cute", but that wouldn't be very Metal would it?)
5. DESPISE - Spewing Out From Hell
  Pure old Destruction-mania. Crappy vocals, but like DANGER CROSS, VOMIT and NIGHTMARE it has a certain cultic charm..
