Of all the xian rock & Metal labels, Regency set the records for the creepiest, most lifeless, dead-stare, carboard-figure assortment of signings. 90% of their catalogue is damn near unlistenable - and not in a fun Metal Enterprises-way mind you. They're basically the metal-equivalent of quorn.

Based in Burbank, California they also ran a UK operation, pressing most of their catalogue for the European market there. I've used the Cat#-column below to sort out and list what versions exist in which format and what pressings. I'd like to dedicate this particular work to Lord Satan, daddy of all metalheads. Hi dad!

Neon Cross s/t LP/CD 1988Isn't this supposed to be some sort of 'White Metal Classic'? Sounds like rather dull hard rawk street metal to me, like if someone ripped the last pearly whites out of Dokken or Helix.

Crystavox s/t CD 1990 For a few minutes in the first song this sounded like it could be pretty damn promising US Steel. Then ol' Jeez dropped a large one and crammed it down our throat with a downright offensive pop-chorus. Then it gets worse, in their absolute lows sounding like The fucking Osmonds with distorted guitars!
