|This band later became The Mechanix. I haven't heard much from this band, but I'd love to have an original if I can find one. I've been after it forever. I appreciate Delbert adding it for me.

|Hey Rockers - Here's the story on NVS. How should I know so much, I went to high school with the lead singer (John). And the answer is no, they don't have any copies left. I sent the band's original cd and their 2ND unreleased songs to various labels not long ago. The interest was awesome! ESCAPE MUSIC signed them BUT changed the band's name to MECHANIX. I wish the label kept the NVS name. MECHANIX ended up being 5 tracks of the original NVS plus 7 tracks from the unreleased 2ND one. The 4 track

|left off MECHANIX were 3 live songs and one studio song. Believe me, the better tracks are on the 2ND unreleased material. Only 2 tracks never made it from the 2ND one. Get MECHANIX if you want the most and best songs of NVS. As for the original NVS, only 1500 copies were made and sold only at shows. Again! get MECHANIX, it's awesome stuff since the original NVS is near impossible to find.

|Mechanix is quite easy to get. I'm at email@example.com if you can't get it through Ebay.

|Well now I see there seems to be quite a bit of interest in NVS/Mechanix. I know them very well. I also grew up with one of the members of the band, Dave Gundacker the lead guitar player. As a matter of fact I was there from the beginning. John came to Alaska and joined a band called Alaska with Dave on guitar. He soon talked Davey into moving to Calif and startin a project called 'NVS'. They enlisted Danny Pisano on Bass and recorded a couple of Demos at Fantasy Studios. One of the tracks was c

|It's great to see so much interest in this cd. I was Eric Monroe's drum tech from '89-'90, so I had the privilege of seeing these guys many times. Dave Gundacker was a guitar instructor at a music school in Milpitas, CA at the time. To say these guys were immensely talented would be an understatement. They were one of the best local bands at the time! That said, this cd was NOT only available at shows. It was available at a few local record stores, as well (Streetlight Records and Tower definitely carried it).

|Oh, and the Fantasy demos 'mozartak' was talking about were KILLER!! They were more keyboard oriented and reminded me a bit of Journey.

|Very average. Even the best songs are not really impressive. Wouldn't buy that even for 10 dollars. Such a pity, cause the singer has a fantastic voice. The Mechanix album seems to be a little better.

|I´ve got MECHANIX cd (Escape Music 2002). There´s only 5 songs of NVS cd. But the others are better than 1st...great cd... You can get it cheap in Rock Shop Spain

|Considered one of the holy grails of CD collecting. They play hard hitting rock that shakes buildings to the foundations and they are masters of their profession. If you love albums by TOUR DE FORCE, ARTICA and the US band FORTUNE, then this is for you. Anyone not familiar with these bands can simply be told that NVS are purveyors of huge anthemic melodic rock that is driven by massive guitar hooks and solos, along with keyboard passages to die for and a lead vocalist who can sing his heart out.

|I have some mixed impressions about this lot at first...the album starts with a very good song "Steel Rain" then it lows down on track 2 and track 3 "Slowburn" retakes the spirit again but slowly..from track 4 onwards is when we have good songs especially the last 3 tracks that are played live (bonus tracks).."Mr Invisible" rocks,"Love-N-Lies" is a fave,"Night Of The Dancer" is excellent and then the best ones of the album "R U Daddy" an excellent funk rock song with high energetic bass and drums work sequence,"Just Like You" a very nice ballad and "Bombay Calling" with a killer drum intro..talking about the members of the band the guys who take the credits are Doney Pisano and Eric Monroe coz both are talented musicians in their respevtive intruments,the other guys do a decent job too but not as outstanding as the both mentioned..the price of the album is way 2 high and honestly exagerated(if u are lucky enough 2 find a copy on E-bay)...87/100

|I pretty much agree with Rick. I like the 2nd unreleased album better though (I do enjoy this one).
||Date: September 25, 2015 at 15:07|
|Is it just me, or does DT's - Pull Me Under borrow from Steel Rain? If you listen to the "...it's spinning around you" part on Pull Me Under; ...I think you'll hear it too. The vocal mechanics are definitely the same as well as the wording IMO, even though the songs have their own flavor. DT came out a year later with Images & Words.

|Hi... I know that the discussion is old, but 'surrf', it's possible to have the two songs of the 2nd unreleased that never made on the cd?
