Wow, I expected something like Angel Witch or Cloven Hoof, but this is freaking heavy.

Perfect CD! When you think "Court in the Act" is just simple N.W.O.B.H.M, mind you! This masterpiece is ultra-heavy.

Not bad, not exceptionally good either. A classic album by definition, but far from the best HM/NWoBHM albums IMO.

One of those Great Old Ones I grew up with. There's something about that blue-collar guitarwork of theirs that has never been matched in sheer personality, I love it so much. At least 6/10 of the songs are pure classics of NWOBHM, the other four just awesome.

Oh, and the voice Brian Ross! Not the most technical singer in the world or that pleasant to listen to but man, is it timeless and ageless, even unique in some weird way.
You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like!
