Bloodlust were a L.A. speedmetal/powermetal band whom formed in around 1983. These guys had the Exciter, Omen, Manowar, Armored Saint, Savage Grace type of sound. Powerful, melodic yet fast, this album is a metal heads wet dream. The vocals of Guy Lord are that of a powerful metal screamer. Listening back to this stuff its amazing metal that keeps my neck bobbing even more so today then it even ever did it 1986.
My Pal Zoran T turned me onto this record in around 1986 or 87. I think I hated it at the first few listens as I was going through my "I hate, and repute all metal" phase. Seemed the dude was always blasting this when I'd go over to his crib to prepare for a punk or metal show, or before we'd hit the streets of San Francisco to skate and bomb hills all night. Dude was a true metal head, and turned me onto some great shit. Zoran is still involved in the California metal scene and he does a show called Capital chaos out of Sacramento. Enjoy & comment.
