A band that went through different style changes, albeith remaining punk during the process - from starting from dirgy anarcho punk, they moved soon into a weird and fierce DISORDER-style band, completed with the screaming and the buzzsaw noises and tempos, and growing both in the musical and the vocal department, but still on a cave-dwelling punk level. An "evolution" followed by the release of the "Pandemonium" demo - they started to sound a little bit more "technically advanced" (is still punk, so take this term with a grain of salt) and "metal" (not really, think of later Anti System playing DISORDER, or Exploited jamming with the cider drinking chaos punks previously mentioned and you got the idea).The album in itself - "The Greatest Show On Earth" - has a protocrust kind of vibe, starting from the cover (can't tell if the lads were into Dungeons & Dragons, for the look of things) , some cool UK82/metal soloing that some japanese bands obliviously stole after, and burly vocals - a slower piece closes the album, and so does with this review. A shame they didnt evolved a bit, they exploded and some members went on with a thrash band i dont remember.
