80's German Speed Metal - MONSTER Riffs

I bought this album without having heard a note, having been recommended by a book when I was 16, and since have considered it one of the best "true" metal albums ever - it is all twin lead guitar harmonics and widdley-woo solos, faster than the heavy metal of the time ( 1984) , but slower than the thrash of the day. Truly, this is german metal at its best, with silly lyrics, unexpected female vocals, oh, and did I mention just how strong those riffs are ? BANG your head....

Great old German metal...

Ignore the so called moral issues with this. If you know metal from the 80's there's nothing here you have not heard before. Power chord riffing, and vaguely..yes Vaguely (as in hardly at all) occult mentions. Doro is considered an amazing talent who sings ina direct "Judas Preist style" with your basic power metal band. Music sounds old, it lacks samples and polish, but for Vintage metal you can do much worse. Sign of Satan has a real nice sound, and speed to it.. Track 5 in the middle is a tad slow for my tastes and seems out fo sorts for the CD over all feel. Track 7 is a high point ont he CD.

Great Debut Album

I searched for years trying to get this album, as it was recommended to me when I lived in Germany. It's a shame that they don't have "Hellbound" on here, as I thought that it was better than this album. I had grown quite a bit in my musical style when I found this.
