"growing up in New Jersey and being a teenager in the mid '80's and being a huge fan of no-nonsense metal Tt quick was one of my favorite bands, local, national or otherwise. "Metal of Honor" came out in 1986 when I was seventeen and it just blew me away. It was their first full-length release, (They had only put out a five-song EP before this), and the record store hadn't even taken the cassettes out of the shipping box when I bought my copy. This album does not have a bad song on it. The production is raw, but not muddy and the songs are straight-forward hard rock/metal. The highlight tracks are "front burner" in which Mark Tornillo's vocals are so intense you would think he was trying to bend a steel bar with his bare hands as he sings, and "Come beat the Band" which is an up-tempo rocker that spits in the faces of all of the record companies that wouldn't give them a chance. Tt quick didn't have any gimmicks or flashiness abouth them. They just turned it up loud and played their guts out. If you're just looking for some hard-edged heavy rock that doesn't pretend to be anything else pick this cd up eventhough the band has long-since gone their separate ways."
A Good Debut But Their Last

"This album showed TT Quick had great talent and potential. After hearing their EP back in the early 80's, this was a must have and a good debut album. I would have liked to have seen the EP on here as well with the legendary "Metal Man" and their cover of "Fortunate Son". It was a classic!"

"There were a lot of so-called metal bands focusing on style over substance in 1986. Taking the lipstick and spandex route may have been the quickest way to MTV airplay and Metal Edge pinups, but New Jersey band T.T. Quick was having none of that. They instead came out of the gate with a hard-hitting metal sound similar to bands like WASP, Metal Church, and Lizzy Borden, with an obvious love for Motorhead and AC/DC. Metal of Honor (great title) was the band's first full-length album, and featured 8 blazing rock tracks, one ill-advised attempt at a power ballad, and a cover of the 60's pop classic Glad All Over, which was originally recorded by the Dave Clark Five of all bands! That one is going in my iPod's "Oddball Cover Songs" playlist for sure!
Oddly enough, considering the album was released by Megaforce, Metal of Honor is still readily available. If you're in the mood for some ballsy, kick in the teeth heavy metal, then Metal of Honor has your name all over it!"
