BD 027 Mayhem Burned Alive LP 1987 Mayhem (NY) proved that you can indeed make great "Punk-Metal" without degrading neither of the genres. This is def' not your typical US Crossover fare but a much more Euro-influenced sound with only a novelty-song or 3 to differ themselves from the likes of UK familiars like English Dogs or The Blood. They're the kind of band that almost get away with the "Ace Of Spades"cover-filler. Almost. Mayhem (NY) proved that you can indeed make great "Punk-Metal" without degrading neither of the genres.

BD 046 Dofka Toxic Wasteland LP/CD 1990 It's rather unobtrusive as far as drum machines go, and nor does the guitar-hero antics of Jim Dofka manage to hide the fact that this is an excellent piece of neo-classical US Power Metal. Proves Black Dragon had a keen eye for the Epic, despite disguises & dire circumstances. That's one hell of an ugly sleeve tho'!
