Had it not been for my recent obsession with collecting the original silver label Megaforce pressings, it is doubtful that I would have ever stumbled upon the hidden gem that is the four band split, Born To Metalize.
The Beast...Sneak Attack...Tortured Dog...I've never even heard of these bands, and to the best of my knowledge this four band comp was the only place that saw their recorded material released. Long hair, leather and studs...songs about Stephen King's The Stand, Dirty Harry, witch hunts, and killing posers to defend the name of Metal. Classic 80's speed metal...this shit rules!
The lyric sheet insert captures where Megaforce was at the time. I only own the Exciter LP, so there are still some big albums to cross off my list. Which one should I chase next?
