The test press of M-Power features a break from Metalheads - Terminator. Grooverider was playing the TP alongside Goldie, who disapproved, so Mayhem went back to the studio and made the final released version with a different break.

Basement Records was one of those labels who would put out some serious quality releases with both the A-Sides and AA-Sides being equally as strong as the other, with the flip often being on a slightly more experimental tip. 'Fierce' and 'M-Power' by Mayhem is a prime example of this with 'Fierce' being a storming techno-breakbeat crossover with a touch of darkness added to further expand the 1993 atmosphere.

My personal favourite on this release is the awesome 'M-Power' which expands on the Metalheads 'Terminator' bass throbs in excellent fashion. When the drop hits midway, the track then introduces the most menacingly powerful, acid snarl I've ever heard. Sounding like some kind of immense growling alien beast. There are also some soothing synths to compliment the track and add a little light to the darkness too. An essential Mayhem/Basement release.
