Matakopas


This is a swell little chunk of US Heavy Metal by way of New York circa 1987. Every song is pretty well crafted and I'm a little shocked that they never released any other material besides this because it holds up rather well. They even have gang vocals on some of the choruses which is totally bitchin'. You can hear everything pretty distinctly in the mix even though the production isn't top notch. There's great drumming on this as well as some solid guitar work. I'd put this album right up there with any Leatherwolf release...easily.

Coming Out Ahead
