DLP-082 Niagara Now Or Never LP 1988 Even if it's mostly on the hair-rock/glam-metal side of things, there are a couple of really surprising elements to be found like the great title track and the speedy 'power-street-metal' "I Should Be Stronger".
DLP-084 Marshall Monroe Lujo Y Pasión LP 1988 Not Metal. aor.

Co-released by Lady Alicia Records.
ALP-001MuroTelon De Acero LP 1988It's everyone's favourite proper Spanish Metal band and they do impress with plenty of speed, power and overall oompf! on this studio debut. I'm however having a hard time picking out any particular tune that stands out from the crowd worth raving a little extra about...
ALP-002Dama Feudal s/t LP 1988Ok, so it's not quite aor all the time, let's call melodic metal on average. No song tends to stick in your head after first play though. A bit of a letdown considering the obscure vibes you get from the sleeve.

Medina Ahazara ...En Al-Hakim LP/CD 1989 Practically all their album sleeves look amazing but M.A. have nothing to do with the kind of Epic Metals we want them to be. Instead they've been churning out lightweight prog-rock, ballads and aor since the late 70's and unlike their comparable countrymen ÑU they've never really come close to anything heavier. Their trademark middle-eastern melodies makes them shine on rare occations but we crave darkness.
ALP-006Extremoduro Tu En Tu Casa, Nosotros En La Hoguera LP/CD 1989Not Metal. Alternative rock.
ALP-007Black Sun Imperial Journey LP 1990There's no pretty way of putting it: This is a genuinely, 100% boring album. It looks great, but there's not a semblance of a decent tune on it and while their US-sounding brand of Melodic Metal lends some contrast to the rest of the Avispa-stable I cannot for the life of me understand why they went though the trouble of signing this foreign (French in this case) band out of all possible alternatives. Also bad vocals.

Medina Azaharas/t DLP/CD 1990Not Metal. aor/prog.
ALP-010ObusOtra Vez En La Ruta LP 1990A supposed come-back album after a few years' hiatus since their Chapa Discos-days. Also their worst album full of pop-hr tripe and I'm too offended to bother with mentioning the few decent exceptions. Avoid.
ALP-011 Cain Un Paso Mas En El Camino LP 1991 Passable melodic HM that would be slightly better than 'passable' if the female vocals could stop from going sour in about every second track. They also have a tendency to go all out pop-rock in their more 'melodic' moments.
ALP-012Seqzión Demenziados ¿Justa Coprocracia? LP 1991Not Metal. Grindcore.
ALP-013SatiraEl Mundo De Los Sueños LP 1991Melodic (verily so) Metal, mostly with with a tad too much gloom to be labeled aor. Only a couple of songs are pure awful.
ALP-014MuroPacto De Sangre LP 1992There's a few weaklings included, but otherwise I might rate this my favourite MURO album. A great place to start if you wanna get to know the band's straight-forward Speed&Heavy Metal fastfood.
