TORA TORA ‘Wild America’ Lemon CDLEM75 (52:14) (2005)

Late 80s America and Tora Tora were one of many successful metal bands playing at the melodic end; the antithesis of the thrash movement and without big hair, with crunchy riffs and big choruses. It was exactly the kind of music killed off by grunge in the early 90s, which is a shame because at least the likes of Tora Tora could hold a tune, no matter how tacky the sound.

Originally released in 1992, this set with its occasional Zeppelin influence, revolves round singer Anthony Corder and guitarist Keith Douglas.

Amnesia features a Poison-like sing-along chorus, and Dead Manís Hand features some sleazy blues riffs.

A lot of fun but hardly essential.
