This one was originally released in 1985

Excellant cd, somewhere between the Scorpions and NWOBHM bands.

Thanks Red... this is the term I wanted to use for these guys before the 'Eye to Eye' album. They sound like a NWOBHM band, and I'm not a personal fan of that sound at all. Again, if you like pre-commercial Europe and Charizma, give this a go. Not recommended though.

This is a Killer Release...It's not like the later stuff they released...this is more Euro/NWOBHM...Personal Faves are Secret Dance(Great Riff)...The Tower...Hell the whole thang...Good Stuff IMO...

Original album was released in 1985 without bonus tracks. Rereleased in 2001 including the bonus tracks.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 27, 2010 at 18:06
Ok i've bought this one along with "Powergames" and i have my expectations as my first listening was to their Powergames album and didn't catch my attetion the way it had to be...well this one basically made me forget about the other one completely!.."The Tower" is an explosive opening track,"In The End" rocks,"Electric Messengers" is one of the best songs,"Secret Dance" is very cool,"It's Nice To Be A King" is a killer,basically the climax of the album,"Whiter Than White","Touch The Fire","High Heels" and "Dreams" are worth too.."Pavement Song" is an excellent bluesy metal track...this album is ten thousand more consistent than Powergames and has some nice catchy hooks!..metal 4 the masses in here!!!.90/100

From: hair metal again Date: May 2, 2017 at 4:41
ok release for 220 VOLT back in 85 full of great riffs and howling vocals and some good songs!European heavy metal with big guitars everywhere and some interesting lines ,but nothing to die for!no standout track ,but solid as a whole!
