KICK AXE - Vices - Pasha 39297 - The same dude who produced Quiet Riot, Spencer Proffer, was behind the boards when this Canadian quintet entered the studios.

This is heavy "bang your head" rock and roll that has the usual subjects in lyrical view - youth, love and rock and roll itself.

With the heavy metal mania that is sweeping the charts today, Kick Axe has a better shot at chart success than, let's say, two years ago.
