Essential 80's metal soundtrack

"Black Roses was a B-grade 80's horror movie about fictional heavy metal band Black Roses - essentially King Kobra with Alex Masi on guitar. Like a lot of cheesy 80's movies (think Iron Eagle, Navy Seals, and Trick or Treat) Black Roses had a killer soundtrack. In addition to four songs by Black Roses (5 if you count the King Kobra song "Take It Off"), the soundtrack featured songs by Bang Tango, Lizzy Borden, Tempest, Hallows Eve and David Michael Phillips (also from King Kobra).

This soundtrack would be worthwhile just for the Black Roses songs, but the additional songs are great too, even if most of them are available elsewhere. This is classic 80's era hard rock and metal at its best. It's also a must-have for King Kobra fans.

Sadly, the Black Roses soundtrack remains long out of print and insanely hard to find (I had to settle for a burn). If you see this CD, grab it! It's one of the absolute best 80's rock soundtracks you'll ever hear."
