MCA-42175 Stone s/t LP/CD 1988 As the first release of bigarse MCA's newly formed Metal-imprint
you'd expect something a wee bit more original & ear-catching than the mere Not-Bad'ness of this confoundingly pedestrian Thrash-light-affair.

Licensed from Megamania. Different sleeve art from original.

MCA-42187 Violence Eternal Nightmare LP/CD 1988 Perhaps one step up the ladder from Stone, I never saw quite as much greatness in Violence as many of my fellow Metal-fans, but it's mostly the vocal-style that rubs me the wrong way..

Dream Theater When Dream And Day Unite LP 1988 Some great melodies and ideas sprinkled about this album, but it's just too fucking ADULT for my taste.
MCA-6300 Bang Tango Psycho Café LP/CD 1989 Not Metal. Sleaze.
MCA-6326 Voivod Nothingface LP/CD 1989 I can't for the life of me think of another album from a former Thrash band that still worked and even exceeded some of the older, more extreme stuff. The last of The Perfect VOIVOD Albums is perfect and even song rule, with "Pre-Ignition" perhaps ruling a bit more still...
MCA 6389 Trixter s/t LP/CD 1990 Not Metal. Radio/hair-rock of the most dire ilk...
MCA 10196 Bang Tango Dancin' On Coals LP/CD 1991 Not Metal. Hard Rock.

The vinyl version is only available as a German pressing.
MCA 10293 Voivod Angel Rat LP/CD 1991 I really don't have any major problems with the pop'ishness and in fact "The Prow" is one of my top 5 fave Voivod tunes. It's the lack of weird and the fact that it looks more cool than it really is that bugs me.

The vinyl version is only available as a German pressing.
1-24525 Tad Inhaler LP/CD 1993 Not Metal. Grunge.

(co-released by Giant Records)
MCA-10701 Voivod The Outer Limits LP/CD 1993 The kind of album I'd really love to re-discover and declare a lost masterpiece but so far I haven't succeeded, so instead of writing something I'll regret 10 years from now I guess I'll just keep trying...

The vinyl version is only available as a German pressing and does not bear the Mechanic logo, but was credited solely to mother-label MCA.
9 24551-2 Seed Ling CD 1994 Not Metal. Grunge.

(co-released by Giant Records)
7559-61789-1 Tad Infrared Riding Hood LP/CD 1995 Not Metal. Grunge.
