Exorcist were a joke band made up of Virgin Steele members who were mimicking the more extreme metal being discovered and played by so many of us in the early 80's. The record is wicked catchy, and the vocals make it. For many a year (decades), I had no idea that this was a spin off of V.S.
I was sort of over a lot of metal by the time this record came out (or maybe rebelling against it due to punk), but the growling, harsh vocals held my attention. If I'd heard this a few years earlier, there might have an abundance of missing pets in the neighborhood.
