Limited edition of 400 copies.
Highly recommended.

Wow there. Where the hell's this been all my life?

Fucking LOUD, vicious heavy metal that couldn't be less pretentious even though a handful of these have left-field science fiction themes. The lofi mix and sharp guitars give it a tinge (but only a tinge) of classic-era Chrome. And the unbelievably awesome The Prophet Song sounds like a cross between Pentagram and Sir Lord Baltimore.

Blue Moon is awful, but that's pretty much it. Well worth owning. Not a masterpiece, but this thing is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more obscure than it has any reason to be.

"This is stretching the limits of the Archives here -- its a 1980s and sounds much closer to the kind of post-punk hard rock that got college airplay in the late 80s than it does like anything else reviewed on this website. That said, its speedy not-quite-metal hard rock with a pulverizing distortion sound (to call it fuzz guitar is to understate it by a mile). One song is acoustic, but mostly this is just in-your-face blitzkrieg, and its really great." - Aaron Milenski, Acid Archives
