Side A:
1. TURBO - Running
  Snotty, pounding NWOBHM (duh) with a great groove to it.
2. BUFFALO - Battle Torn Heroes
  Boogie-Heavy with a bit more aggression than your average boogie rock.
3. STREETFIGHTER - She's No Angel
  A bit heavier than their later EP. Sound like a fresh roughening-up of 70's Hard Rock good on the way of becoming Heavy Metal.
4. STORMTROOPER - Grind'n'Heat
  Hard R'n'R doing it heavier than their cousins from a few years back. Nothing too exciting though. Not to be confused w/ any other Stormtroopers.
5. TAROT - Feel The Power
  Most metallic leads so far, but songwise it's no keeper.
6. BASTILLE - Hard Man
  Back to generic, heavy Hard Rock. Leaves no lasting impression whatsoever.
7. OXYM - Hot Rain
  Thundering leads and sinister guitars sounding a wee bit like WF General + a more mellow chorus. Faster, less progressive than their 7" yet still great.
8. DAWNWATCHER - Firing On All Eight
  Blackmore-leads and hammonds straight outta the 70's, but delivered with a bit more bite. Great song, but the singles are even better.

Side B:
1. VARDIS - If I Were King (new take)
  Re-recording of their greatest track ever. Classic, STORMING lead riff! (later ripped off by both Metallica and 9"Nails)
2. SILVERWING - Rock & Roll Are Four Letter Words
  YoungDumb&Fullocum-hardrock. Cute.
3. RHABSTALLION - Chain Reaction
  Solid hardrocker with a faint punk-vibe on the chorus. Turns out great!
4. COLOSSUS - Holding Back Your Love
  A bit laid-back, dated, hardish rock.
5. JEDEDIAH STRUT - Workin' Nights
  Yet another Hard Rock-standard easily forgotten.
6. WARRIOR - Still On The Outside
  Rough & Heavy 70's groove. A nice enough change of pace. No clue which of the many Warriors this might be - not any of the 'known' ones as it appears...
7. KOSH - The Hit
  Quite sloppy & amateurish Heavy, reminding me of Nightime Flyer but without their cool.
8. RACE AGAINST TIME - Bedtime
  It should be common knowledge by now that is the band where Dave Halliday from the mighty HELL started his singing carreer. Unsurprisingly the best & heaviest track on the album, though the other 2 tracks from this demo are even better.
