Bruce Dickinson's debut with the band.

Recorded at Kingsway Recorders, London.
Engineered by Paul 'Chas' Watkins & Bob Broglia.
Mixed by Paul Samson at Trident Studios, London.
Engineered by Craig Milliner.

Re-issued by Repertoire Records (RR4037) with a 12 minute interview with Bruce, conducted by Chris Welch October 5th, 1989. Strangely the same interview is included on "Shock Tactics".

Re-released by Sanctuary Records in 2001, with slightly different artwork (bottom) and two bonus tracks:
11. Angel with a Machine Gun
12. Kingsway Jam

The theme of the song "Thunderburst" is the same of more famous Iron Maiden's "The Ides of March", first song of the "Killers" album.
