From: M. Allen Date: May 22, 2003 at 20:12
Surprised to see this band on this site, since this is hard-hitting stuff with its feet firmly planted in power-metal territory. Still, for fans of this genre, the band delivers the goods, using thick, beefy guitars to churn out aggressive riffs & big power chords, all leading to anthemic choruses complete with shout-it-out gang vocals. AOR fans will probably want to run for cover when this bad boy bursts from the speakers, but power metal maniacs will have a real good time.

I agree with M.Allen on this, awesome cd!! And I think there first one Danger of infection is even better!! You can't go wrong with either disc.

I might have to get this album. I just lissened to the sound-bit on this page. 'Welcome To The Real World' sound pretty good. Nice guitars and the singer sounds like the singer of Hair Of The Dog. I wonder if I will be albe to find this CD in stores? Or.... maybe Kazaa? Don't worry though,... if it's good enough I WILL buy their CD.

This is UK hard rockers Dirty Deeds' second album. These guys play hard and heavy melodic metal with a more commercial or melodic touch. Very much a late 80's sound - or a classic UK hard rock feel - this should appeal to fans of any good NWOBHM album released back then.

Ive just listen to the entire cd on mp3 just ordered the original. Excellent guitar works!!!

From: MJ Date: December 12, 2003 at 20:24
This is a lot heavier than my normal taste, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it! Heavy guitars....great vocals...and definitely "melodic metal"!! "Kill The Pain" and "Welcome To The Real World" are the favorites ..... although "Cyberbabe" is kinda

From: tonedefhead Date: August 28, 2008 at 6:28
is this album set to become something of a collecters item? what with it containing the track with the riff that slash 'stole' costing him and/or velvet revolver 20% of contrabands earnings and royalties. i just got it on ebay for 1. maybe na future investment? no, honestly the real reason i got this cd is it contains 2 members of the band VOODOO SIX. they've an awsome album out in the UK, which is easily the best album of 2008. check them out if you can.

From: Metal T Date: December 16, 2008 at 19:19
Worth the price of admission for the kick-tail 'Nightmare'.Has some riffs and some balls on there so its definitely worth grabbing...

From: Axelinger Date: December 17, 2008 at 20:32
All 3 albums they've released are filled with great tracks. Looking forward to a 4th if they haven't split up.
