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



Side A:
1. O.F.H. - Johnny
  Amateur boogie/NWOBHM style.
2. NESSIE - Hard Life
  Mostly a dull hard rocker, though the heavy 70s guitar sound and minimalist riffing make it interesting.
3. POWER - Good Time To Night
  Melodic power metal, a bit like fellow Belgians PALASS. Great up until the sloppy twin lead guitar harmony near the end.
4. GE¤SHAN - Just Be On Time
  Terrible out-of-tune hard rock/heavy metal.
5. BACCHUS - Lonely With The Night
  Like CROSSFIRE but worse (which is good in a way).

Side B:
1. WAX PYTHON - Dawn Of Our Love
  Somewhat glammy hard rock with a catchy chorus. Not as punk as the other material that I've heard.
2. JAILBREAK - Black Skin Girl
  Bad AC/DC style hard rock.
3. CARNAGE 22 - Johnny Dupont (D)
  Decent NWOBHM style song, and by decent I mean for an amateur band with a bad singer like all the rest of the bands on this compilation.
4. DEEP PRESSION - Night Rider
  Ditto.
5. STORM - The Voice Of Storm
  Oddly cheery keyboards introduce this great 70s inspired metal song that features the over-the-top vocals of Alain Vandenberghe who would go on to sing for RITUAL on their cult EP.
