Even though they're mainly considered "just another one of those cult/classic/crap old German Metal labels" by most, they had plenty of non-Metal acts in their roster as well. They also distributed a handful of private/micro-label releases, so occationally their logo turned up on albums that weren't really their own products (listed at the bottom). Inbetween I've included the only (?) 2 titles on Backbone Records, Wishbone's reissue branch active for a short term in the late 80's.

LP
1984
The heavy "Call Off The Dogs" display some sharp teeth and could almost have fit on an early Exciter album as the token Heavy Cruncher, otherwise it's pretty play-by-numbers US Heavy Rock.

Swords! Metal! Steel! Satan!! One of the true greats of Mean Olde Euro-Metal together w/ Future Tense, Trial and Invader. Every song rule, every riff kill, everything about this mini rips. "The Exorcist" is their "Swords Of Vengeance". Thank doG they never got the chane to 'develop' on a disappointing, watered-down full-lenght 2 years later.
