This was a tipical 80s euro heavy metal band that only released one album. This is a cool release for any ACCEPT, STORMWITCH, GRAVESTONE, Nice, very nice release for real heavy metal fans.

From: B.Grimm Date: October 5, 2004 at 20:49
Anyone know where I can find a copy of this? I'd love to hear it.

B.Grimm, I picked up a copy at Good double CD set! You can also learn more about the band at:

Whoops... this is the one I have. The double CD. As i said, fans of early Victory and good German hard rock will enjoy this. You can also pick it up at AOR Heaven. Good value, good discs.

Los alemanes Cannon reeditaron sus dos obras maestras que los llevaron a la fama hace casi dos décadas atrás, en un disco doble titulado “The History”. La primera es “Timerides” el cual salio allá a principios-mediados de los ´90 cuando ya el Grunge comenzó a abarcar todo el mercado y no tuvo muchas chances de promoción. El CD incluye todos los temas originales y algunos bonus tracks.

From: lucasgordon Date: June 30, 2005 at 2:21
Comienza su Hard Rock melódico con “Lets Start The Party”y a lo largo de sus 12 canciones podrán apreciar una buena performance de estos alemanes. A mi gusto “Runin’” es la mejor canción del disco, la cual es bien pareja en forma completa. Con “Thunder & Lightning”, Cannon se despacha con todos los temas originales y ahí es donde agregan varios bonus tracks: “In Your Arms”,“Battefield”, “Cato n The Hunt”,“Strangers In The Night”,“Racer”,“Sky Rock”,y una versión extendida de “Thunder & Lightning”

From: lucasgordon Date: June 30, 2005 at 2:21
El sonido de la banda es impecable, la voz de Mat-Rein Jaehnke en bastante aguda, a mi oir, entre el timbre de Dio, por momentos Jon Bon Jovi, tal vez Vince Neil en sus primeras épocas (cuando aún pegaba buenos alaridos). Para los que no conocen a Cannon este álbum tiene muchos riffs, bases por lo general aceleradas (más cercanas a un Heavy Metal que a un Hard Rock) algunos coros más yendo a Hard Rock y voces agudas valga la redundancia.

I got this double CD after I heard the new one "back in business". It's amazing! Where were this guys the last 20 years? "Thunder and Lightning" is one of the best records I've ever heard!!!

From: deanM Date: August 11, 2005 at 3:40
Holy smoke! That "Thunder&Lightning" CD is amazing!!! I'd never thought they come from Germany. Sounds like an american band! Really good bamd and really double CD. The "Timeriders" demos are also very good. Why are they so fameless?

From: sarah-b Date: August 31, 2005 at 3:57
Wonderful package! The remastered "Thunder and Lightning" is so powerful! The "Timeriders" songs are also quiet good. I don't know were the guys recorded the demos, but they sound like real studiorecordings. Some of them sound better than actual productions.

From: Bobby De Date: January 30, 2007 at 6:54
Thank you, I'm glad there is a record company out there who believes in metal, and the power of metal to re-issue and to help bring back the sound that rocks! Hopefully young kids will love and listen to and emulate the great sounds of the 80s, so we can have more bands like these kick and blow us away on stage all over the world!

From: Metal T Date: September 15, 2008 at 16:28
Great band,nice stuff! Cannon's "Time Riders","Thunder and Lightning" + several bonus tracks are included.Some tasty german metal-definitely worth checking out if you dig "Accept","Ratt and "Victory".
