  Superb, energetic Metal with a Tokyo Blade'y NWOBHM-touch. Previously featured on the Hard & Heavy (Kleeblatt No. 22) LP from earlier the same year.
3. BERLUC - Nach Haus
  The excellent (yeah I know, weird isn't it?) power ballad from their 7" EP from the same year.
4. FEUERSTEIN - Teufelsbraut
  At first they sound like complete Motörhead clones with those vocals and that chorus, but the harmony solos and Power riffing takes them in a more PowerEpic direction. One of the greates Metal anthems of the DDR.
5. PRINZIP - Phönix
  The kind of mellow pop-HR that everybody hates.
6. BAJAZZO - Brass Dance
  Instrumental jazz rock.
