From: petermexico Date: June 9, 2012 at 13:23
This is a very good compilation of demos from 1981 to 1983, with Bernie Shaw on the band the most of them, the quality of the recordings in many songs is poor, because were recorded in 4 and 8 track, you can find songs from the project "Escape" with Clive Burr. A nice addition in my collection, for Praying Mantis and NWOBHM fans.En lo personal disfruto mucho este disco gracias al gran trabajo que se hizo en su recopilación, no todas las canciones tienen la misma calidad en sonido pero van por la misma línea, para degustadores del NWOBHM y de estos excelentes músicos antes de regresar para el segundo aire de Praying Mantis retomando su sonido 100% Británico.
