A friend recently turned me on to this compilation. Does anyone know anything about any of these bands? I did a little research, and basically all I could find was that the singer of "Race Against Time" was Dave Halliday of Hell.

Am I out of the loop? Is this comp well known?

It's kinda well known I guess. Amongst the NWOBHM crowd at least. A lot of the bands released a 7" or two, some demos but most of them faded quickly. I think I've only got Dawnwatcher and Oxym 45s.

That Dawnwatcher 7" has been on my want list for years. Love to own it one day.

Legendary comp, probably only behind "Metal For Muthas" and "Lead Weight" in terms of fame. The best thing about this comp is the bands are either obscure, or else contribute unique songs to this comp only.

Does anyone know what the inner sleeve looks like? I ordered a copy and when I received it in the mail it had a crappy plastic Warner Brothers inner sleeve. I'd like to replace it. Is it just a plain white sleeve or does it have some kind of information printed on it? Or an ad maybe?

My copy has just a plain white innersleeve, don't know if it's the "real" one. Got this a couple of years ago because of Race Against Time, didn't expect anything special from the other bands but Dawnwatcher blew my mind.

this is awesome. I'm relatively new to the more obscure NWOBHM bands, so this is great for me.
