Having an underground classic like the VIRTUE single as your first release is indeed a great start for a label. Later things became sort of blurry. During their first few years as Other Records, this small Oxford-based label tried out a little bit of everything before becoming one of The Guys and settling for Metalother Records. "Bloody weird name for a record company.." someone pointed out and so came another, more radical change of monicker to G.I. Records. The End?

It's quite obvious the label had the sleeve finished long before they got to hear the final product. It's a much more melodic (almost poppy at times) effort than the artwork would lead you to believe, but for the most part not in a bad way. It kinda reminds me of the better melodic moments of Witchfynde, while the heavier bits sound like something Ebony would have put out a few years prior.
