Rock '92 LP 1992

Info: A title so generic it's actually the second one in our comps section bearing it. Seems to be a product of the Note Off Studio in Livorno, Italy, promoting local rock talent.

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



Side A:
1. ONTARIO - Cambia
  Rock ballad.
2. SAHARA - Neverending Love
  Competent but not too remarkable melodic HM saved by rather heavy HM chuggings & power chords. The Scandinavian-sounding names in the line-up makes perfect sense.
3. VIRGINIANA MILLER - La Bandiera
  Fluffy/jazzy soft-pop.
4. INSANIA - Sensazioni Di Vita
  Crazed, all-over-the-place progressive/experimental HM/Thrash that on a few unfortunate occations leans dangerously close to groovy "alt.metal".
5. ACHTUNG X - Il Trionfo Dell'alba
  Atmospheric rock ballad.

Side B:
1. ZEN - Enfant Terrible
  Jumpy/kooky/punky spazz-rock.
2. SAGHE ISLANDESI - Interna
  Soft alt.pop.
3. BLUE ISLAND - Heartache (of love)
  A catchy, fem-fronted Hard Rock hit that would probably have done well on the radio 5 years earlier without being unlistenable schmalz.
4. JET SET - Going Back To The Past
  Feel-good mainstream rock.
5. KILLING THRASH - Guida
  Obviously the "check me out!"-marker here, and, oh wow... More than anything this reminds me of PARABELLUM (!!). Not the same out-of-this-world guitar tone of course, but it shares same chaotic attack. Total garage-thrash-noise, only for purebred sickos.
