Dave Meniketti's voice and guitar playing are in place, as is Leonard Haze's solid drumming. That is why it is such a pleasure to own this CD - to have a chance to hear a great band in development.

This is part of his Christmas list of rare CDs he's been looking for. One of the best albums of all time. Thank you. The album builds on the promise of the 1st record and though shorter, album number 2 makes up for its abbreviated running time with some seriously heavy tunes.
The title track is as heavy as anything VH did, period! Their earlier stuff reminds of a time when music was more than a beautiful face and a sexy video for the MTV audience On this album there are really great songs that have been kinda lost in time. The album starts off with the title track which is representative for the whole record although it's far from the album's highlights. Then comes "Road" kind of Blackfoot-like with a clear rock 'n' roll approach. The verse is great but when the refrain comes along I think the guys should have been a little less into sound effects.
Track number four is "Nasty Sadie", a typical rock song from the seventies that has connections to Kiss as well as to Whitesnake. Next up is "Tried to show you" one of the albums best songs which has both the drive and the melody that is so rare today.
The album closes with "Stargazer", a song that is slightly different from the rest. Sometimes it makes me think of Bowie's earlier stuff. If you like rock from the seventies I don't think you'll be disappointed, and these guys can really play and sing. I wouldn't be surprised if you wanna be a drummer after listen to the way Haze handles the drums.
Just don't let the album cover fool you - it's not "saturday night fever"!! Those that have heard the debut release of Yesterday And Todayknow well the power and delightfully raw sound that made for such a great album Your statement is incorrect -- " But I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do.

The human skull that challenges the Out of Africa theory. Although the lyrics are a tad wishy-washy, they belie some fast chugging heavy metal. The Hammond organs, while perfectly fine within themselves, drag it back slightly towards early seventies hard rock. Even though the album gets favourable reviews in metal circles, and was chosen for the Kerrang-curated "Striktly For Konnoisseurs" comp, it's certainly not a typical metal album. It has some elements of prog and funk, and it's not aggressively heavy but it's very much driven by complex guitar interplay that displays many of the melodic qualities that heavy metal bands have, especially ones that have multiple guitarists that pride themselves in technical skill.
I guess you could compare Marcus's relationship to metal as similar to that of Wishbone Ash. The other members involved do not appear to have had careers in hard rock before or after Marcus, but some did turn up in disco funk. Here is what Marcus Malone himself wrote for a CD reissue of the album in "The songs on this album were written, tried and tested for several years previous to in the night clubs, bars and eventually festivals of Detroit, Toleda and Chicago.
We worked seven nights a week and loved every bit of it and had built up a massive following before being spotted by several record companies. The year was a very good year indeed - we left Detroit and headed for California, which was just like I pictured it - fast cars, gorgeous women and uncut drugs. I am happy to see the interest in the 'Marcus' resurrection for a new generation to discover and our die-hard followers to rediscover in digital format.
I'm not one to dwell on the past - I can only say that it was great while it lasted and looks like its going to last a long time to come. This album is meant to be played at maximum volume that your speakers can handle. So get out that pipe or zig zags, a little incense - and enjoy".
Four Chicago teenagers formed Midnight. Inspired by Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and Deep Purple, eventually they began gigging at colleges and clubs in and around Chicago, even though they were still in high school at the time.
Dave, Frank, and John all contributed to the songwriting and then the band worked on the arrangements as a unit. Like Blitz before, the recordings have a rough edge and amateurish production, with a mixture of good to average songs.
Dave used a Vox organ, and its thin sound was out of vogue by this time, giving the music a link back to '60s garage rock. The group self-released "Into the Night", pressing copies in early A show at The Aragon in late '79 was one of their last and in they took a break from playing to write new material.
Drag City reissued the LP this year link. This song presents an interesting mixture of out-dated equipment like the Vox and a recording job which sounds like an amateurish attempt from an earlier time, while some the music itself has influence from more metallic sounds of the later-seventies. Tyranny and Infinity were two bands helmed by guitarist Rob Griffin, who later started a cult metal band called Graven Image.
Included here is both sides of a 7", Dreams Of Egypt - Yesterday And Today* - Struck Down (Vinyl, one side by Tyranny and one labelled as played by "Infinity".
According to the label, both written by Rob Griffin and Dave Chumchal. Thanks to O. Records for reissuing this 45 inand bringing it to the world's attention! Both sides are equally great heavy metal. The penultimate track is from a real wildcard, a Tennessee band called Constellation. Many thanks to Dreams Of Egypt - Yesterday And Today* - Struck Down (Vinyl Acid Archives link for what little information is known about the album, one of the most obscure appearing here for sure.
The trio attracted a loyal following on the local club scene, eventually capturing the attention of a small label called Pyramid, which signed them to a recording contract and financed their self-titled debut. Co-produced by Jack Bryson, Cathy Dover, Jim Stabile and the band, the resulting LP "Constellation" is an impressively hard-rocking effort; even more so given creative mainstay Crye wasn't even old enough to legally play in a nightclub.
In addition to handling lead vocals he sure didn't sound like a 14 year old and lead guitar, Crye wrote or co-wrote all nine tracks. The track I chose here, "You Don't Know", is propulsive and has a ton of punk energy with sharp riffage. The album did little commercially and the band promptly called it quits. Crye relocated to L. Unfortunately, Crye also picked up a nasty drug habit.
By the time he was in his early 20s he'd returned to Tennessee where he ended up homeless, living on the streets of Chattanooga. They are the most successful band appearing here, although after a start in the early seventies the commercial success didn't come until the mid-eighties, after their heaviest albums were behind them, in my opinion.
To me this track has a very metallic guitar tone and playing Dreams Of Egypt - Yesterday And Today* - Struck Down (Vinyl, which sounds really cool and precognizant of s trends. I wonder if the combination of heavy metal and Egyptian mythology influenced Iron Maiden later on, or even the Death Metal band Nile? Well, I guess you'd have to ask them!
