Beowulf - Slice Of Life

Year of Release: 2002
Label: Metal Legions
Catalog Number: ML001
Format: LP
Total Time: 33:50:00

Groups like Beowulf signaled the beginning of a new era in rock music. They ushered it all in with a loud bang. Metal came at us full speed ahead in all its raging glory in the 80s. Bands that played this kind of music were tagged as hair bands, although not all of them had hair down to their butts.

It's unfortunate that a great band like this didn't get the recognition they deserved. Perhaps with the efforts of labels like Metal Legions that will change.

Slice Of Life was originally released in 1980 [Morrhythm]; this vinyl LP version is a fine representation of the album. Every song just pops off this platter with explosive guitar riffs along with thundering bass and drums accompanied by stand up vocals.

This is a five star rock 'n' roll recording that needs to be recognized by all that enjoy guitar oriented rock music. Pick this gem up now and help the Metal Legions to grow! Let's rock! Nuff' said.
