"Sadly, these bad boys of Axe never recieved the attention like they truly deserved cause they can do anything from power pop to grinding metal, and 1983 was the turning point of heavy metal due to the success of Motley Crue and Quiet Riot and Axe could've been in the same league with them, anything from Journey to Motorhead, the classic cuts are Heat in the Street, All Through the Night, She's Got the Power, Girls Girls Girls (my favorite), Eagle Flies Alone, Keep Playing That Rock 'n' Roll (originally done by Edgar Winter) and Let the Music Come Back. This album is highly recommended to those 80's rock fans but beware, this album is extremely hard to find and the first time I got this album (on Cassette) was at a local pawn shop and a year later it got eaten, then the following year I got it on vinyl and still have it to this damn day."

"Found the tape at the Salvation Army for .50 cents about a month ago, not sure who Axe was. Nemesis is a typical 80's metal album. Their style fits in with groups like Motley Crue, Great White, Poison, W.a.s.P. etc. Not knowing anything about the band I didn't have very high expectations from the album. It was surprisenly good. Songs like Heat in the STreet and Young Hearts just rock. The album never really gets dull, just sounds similiar to the rest of the groups of their time, so a pretty cool album if you can find it at a good price."
