Smash Alley Underground - Rising From the Shadows (independent) 1995
1. "Back Alley Shadows"
Traditional, Christian heavy metal with lots of Judas Priest influences and a vocalist who studied at the Vince Neil School of Heavy Metal. What really makes this disc enjoyable is the guitar work and the crunchy guitar tone of David Walker. I asked him several years ago how he obtained the guitar sound and his reply was "lots of Laney stacks." So there you have it. Favorite tracks are the thrashy, double bass instrumental "Chased by the Enemy" and album opener "Back Alley Shadows."
