's comments about each song:
1. Vertigo - This is an absolute smasher that I'd totally forgotten. Maybe it should have appeared on "Reign of Fear". No compromise - bang it out!
2. She Killed and Smiled - There was an "Avenger" song called "Stay Wild" in 1985. After a major rearrangement and with different words it sounds like this.
3. Destination Day - There was a totally different version of this on our first "Avenger" demo in 1983, in fact only the chorus remains...
4. Take My Blood - Chris and I wrote this three years ago during a session. I'm happy that we recorded our shit then and that we found the tape to make this one out of it - a real killer.
5. No Sign of Life - During the sessions for "Missing Link" we wrote an instrumental song on this somber theme. It's finished now. The words were written at the beginning of the Yugoslavian war.
6. Submission - This is something that we worked on for "Execution Guaranteed" in 1986, somehow we forgot all about it.
7. The Unknown - I wrote this one in 1988 during a tour - which is probably why I forgot about it. (On tour you can never remember what happened from one day to the next!)
8. Dangerous Heritage - This was the result of drink-and-play session with Chris' brother Spiros. It was funny listening to the tape - you couldn't recognize the original shit from the finished song.
9. Prayers of Steel '94 - The title track of my first album that I recorded with Avenger in 1984. I've changed some words for this version. You find all former members playing here. The drum take is done by Jorg, the lead breaks by Alf, Jochen, Manni, Guinness and Rudy.
10. The Blow in a Row - Hidden competition time! Try to find out which songs are included in this. There are bits and pieces from every album from "Reign of Fear" right up to "The Missing Link".
11. Brainsucker - This is more of a joke than anything else. I wrote it for a certain event in 87. Just raw!
