I wonder why everyone is so focussed on that Brainwash LP. Alot of those malay records got great covers but Brainwash isn't that good musically. The Rockers LP's from Singahell or Rockerz - Dukun, Febians - Satu Antara Sejuta are MUCH better ...

Are people really still focused on it? Compared to the prices of 2008-9 I almost didn't pay anything. I definitly think the enthusiasm fell down about this one. It's a nice Heavy Metal album at its highest points, and it's regular malay rock ballad at its weakest. Victim on the other hand has some great, great tunes, really loves it. It's way less known than Brainwash but deserves more attention.

In all honesty, all these records are flawed by the mellow/pop rock attitude of some songs. Even for the best bands like Rusty Blade, Rockerz, Power Metal etc. Singapore and Malaysia gave their best tribute to Metal with the unmatched extremity of Abhorer, Rator, Nuctemeron, Xastur etc.

These bands had to play radio friendly material in order to get a record deal and their albums distributed by big record companies. That's why independent bands like the mentioned ones or Blackfire couldn't release albums back in the day. They simply refused to play 70 % ballads. lol
The band Bloodshed even had to change their name to Blackshed to keep on releasing albums. Well, all these malay vinyls are special ones, released mainly for airplay promotion. There aren't much available, officially they are only sold as cassettes. So get what you can ...

It wouldn't be the first time guys on this site or the "Metal" underground community in general hyped a record based on the cover art when the music was generic/boring or commercial radio friendly Rock.
