Help me identify this unknown test pressing!

Post#1 » Mon Dec 25, 2017 3:13 pm

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Unknown-Artist-1984-Heavy-Metal-Test-Pressing-Acetate-Unreleased-HEAR/272981976377?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

This showed up on Ebay late last night and after hearing the soundclips provided I jumped on it. Vocally I think it sounds a LOT like Ann Boleyn but that just doesn't seem likely. Seller says the matrix dates the pressing to early '84 but he couldn't find any other info. Difficult to work out possible song titles from the clips provided, maybe 'Strange Lady' and 'Take It Away'? Thoughts?

It's this band/album. Someone will be really pissed off in case it was bought. :wink:

Track 2 (on Ebay) is a real crusher, unfortunately it's the only straight forward track of this album. It got some pretty strange parts ...

Ha--nice catch! I've got the Eclpse lp but I never would have guessed or remembered it. There are 3 songs on the test pressing that didn't appear on the album, with any luck those will be more of the straight-forward rockers. I didn't pay anywhere near the $299 buy-it-now price since he was accepting offers so I'm not sweating that, either. Cheers!
