KRUIZ {Круиз} (rus) "Железный Рок" 1987 demo

KRUIZ {Круиз} (rus) "Железный Рок" (Iron Rock1987 demo
Some great speed metal here from a Russian band called Kruiz, in their native tongue it's Круиз. This demo came out in 1987, and the band had already released 4 albums, another demo in '85, a live album & an EP. The sound is album quality, done in a good studio. Crunchy guitars, pounding drums, great leads & riffing, varied vocals. The music is strange - it has a Russian flavor, similar to Korrozia Metalla. Some parts are straight out speed metal with shouted choruses that sound inspired by some mid-80's Bay Area Thrash and also of the band Running Wild. Other songs have a Metal Church vibe but crunchier and Russian. All the vocals are in Russian and it adds to the positive aspects of this great demo. I highly recommend this. It's a killer demo, the length of an album, it sounds great, it's different, it's Russian!
