This is the Fistful of Metal album but with a track from the Armed and Dangerous EP stuck in the middle of it and another stuck on the end. I don't get the point of that. Apparently this is a Japan only release, hence the sword-wielding skateboarder samurai on the cover. Perhaps Fistful of Metal wasn't available there or something. Nevertheless, Fistful of Metal is still a pretty cool album and the two songs from Armed and Dangerous are pretty legit too. However, if I were a little Japanese kid listening to this album for the first time back in the 80s having just finished Subjugator and moving on to Raise Hell, I'd probably be pretty confused to notice the guitars and drums suddenly had much more bass and the singer was different. Obviously I can't recommend anybody seek out and purchase this because it's probably really expensive and both the Fistful of Metal album and the entire Armed and Dangerous EP are available in a nice little double disc set, so get that.
