This was the Metal-imprint of label/distributor Il Discotto Productions, situated in the Milano-area and mostly (in)famous for unleashing craploads of so-called "italo-disco" onto the world in the early/mid-80's. It's meager discography was cut short when the mother label folded in 1986.

All releases are fairly rare and some of them (HOCCULTA, BRIGHTLIGHTS..) are actually pretty good.

Good, but not amazing diverse Metal where only the glammy title track would count as a complete disappointment.

Another win for Italy and their great craftmanship in the field of EuroMetal! The catchy speeder "Higher", the riff-cake "Burnin' Flower", the heartwrenching chorus of "Days Of Glory" and even the semi-ballad closer all vibrate with the same dark forces as those of their counrymen Unreal Terror, Revenge and Rex Inferi.

Side A reminds me of my Swedish pet-peeves Bullet, i.e. 80's AC/DC without the good parts. They improve some on side B with more uptemo, NWOBHM'y parts but not enough to make them reach the very high Italian average.
