YOC - n/a

A bit thin on the ground with info for this lot. They hail from Turkey and seem to play Heavy Metal covers of IRON MAIDEN and METALLICA amongst others. I reviewed a chap going under the moniker of Y.O.C. a few years back but promo info is hardly forthcoming with this release so it’s anyone guess if they two are related.

 

For what it’s worth the songs are all pretty decent. The MAIDEN cover, ‘’Remember Tomorrow’’ is stoically fused to the original; ‘’Blitzgrieg’’ is a cover version of the METALLICA version which in itself is a cover version of the BLITZGRIEG original. ‘’Battery’’ remains an underrated METALLICA song from a time when they Thrashed. Here it is represented as you would expect it.

 

Far from original, far from essential; this release is a strange brew that seems to have been thrown together without much thought. Really a case of blink and you will miss it but in all honesty you will not have missed anything of note.
