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



Side A:
1. DEMON EYES - Les Deux Maudites
  ...Hammering Metal, into your head! The energy tops the lack of originality. Different to "Rites Of Chaos" LP version.
2. BADGER - The Traveller
  Some decent twin guitar leads makes this slightly better than your average Rock-Metallers. No clue if this is the "Over The Wall" 7" guys or not.
3. COMA - All In The Name Of Rock And Roll
  Sounds like those early Saxon r'n'r cuts. In one ear...
4. BLASPHÉME - Jehova
  Perhaps their greatest song ever, here in a superior version to the one on their s/t LP.

Side B:
1. VULCAIN - Vulcain
  France's very own Motörhead cloning better than few have cloned before. Or after.
2. DOUBLE AGENT - Madman
  The punk vocals are charming, but the song itself is just dumb, chugging hard rock that goes nowhere.
3. STEEL WINGS - Live Your Life
  Pretty fast for boogie-Metal, and it comes with the trademark Scanda-Metal vocal harmonies so it ain't half-bad.
4. STALLION - Don't Wait To Long
  In parts hauntingly similar to early M Crüe. Could have been decent HR if it wasn't for the tone-deaf vocalist.
