Detailed Description
Powerlord was one of those bands that popped up out of nowhere and completely fell off into obscurity. Out of all of the rare 80's US Metal gems, Powerlord is arguably the very best at what they do. They straddle somewhere between Savage Grace and Slayer. So to describe their sound, we would call it Speed/Thrash Metal, but done extremely professional and the songs were written with such precision. You can just tell these guys were perfectionists back then and as far as the songwriting, this album is completely flawless. We were able to re-master this directly from the original master tapes, but since a lot of their memories were lost when High Vaultage Records (an obscure German label) tried to re-issue the album, there's not much in the way of bonus, band photos, or memorabilia that we could include in the package. We do have the most important thing in tact and that's the music. This sounds amazing! This is was 80's Metal was all about. If they would have gotten lucky, they could have been a much bigger band back then, but with the flood of Thrash Metal after Slayer and Metallica came out, they fell quickly into the cracks of obscurity.
