Xian Metal sublabel to Frontline Records. Like many normal labels at the time they tried to stay hip with the kids and the 'modern' industrial/alternative/gothic rawk releases started to take over by 1992-93, also leaving vinyl behind a few years prior to that. I'm therefore ending this list with the last release of 1992, which is whereabouts their last half-decent, proper Metal releases came out.

Concerning versions, I haven't bothered to go too deep into the matter here but I'll mention that only the 3 first releases came out on vinyl in the US, the rest were made in the UK to cater to the backwards European market. Some releases also had UK CD pressings but I'm having a hard time to tell them apart from the US originals (or possible US 2nd pressings) and I'm short for time to disentangle the mess atm. In the case of the CD-only releases, the catalogue numbers mentioned here should be for the original US versions.

IR4272Dual Edge Knock 'em Alive LP 1987 It would be unfair to Poser Metal to call this Poser Metal. This is christian Poser Metal. Yeah, have a good taste of that phrase for while. Bitter, inni't?

I've tried and tried again but can't for the life of me figure out why this one seems so popular among US Metal fans & collectors. Sure, it's heavier than your average WM-pussys but not one single track stands out or offers an excuse for a 2nd spin. Zzzzzzzz....

RO9209Sacred Warrior Wicked Generation LP/CD 1990Sometimes I wonder if there are more Queensrÿche-clones out there than there are Maiden-clones, at least from the US late 80's/early 90's? While they're surely not on par with Heir Apparent or Crimson Glory they're still great little copykittens and I'd rank this the ugliest of their relases their best.
