Side A:

  A classic, taken from the debut EP.
2. ASTAROTH - Die To Be Alive
  Italian speed metal from The Long Loud Silence EP.
3. H-BOMB - Chasseur De Frime
  From their Coup De Metal EP, this is a French blend of IRON MAIDEN and MOTORHEAD.
4. CROSSFIRE - Crossfire
  A Belgian metal standard originally released on the Metal Clogs compilation.

Side B:
1. EVIL - Evil's Message / Evil
  Great NWOBHM-influenced metal, a lot like SWEET SAVAGE. Taken from their Evil's Message EP.
2. H-BOMB - Le Glaive
  A rather repetitive offering from H-BOMB's otherwise solid debut LP of straight up metal.
3. GILGAMESJ - Daybreak
  Top track from their Take One EP.
4. SORTILEGE - Blade Killer
  Superb power metal with a strong IRON MAIDEN influence and a dark FATES WARNING atmosphere but also their own sound. English version of "Bourreau" which was also included as a bonus track on the reissue of their self-titled EP.
