"Made in USA in 1999, Serial#NRCD-122 Playing Time: 39 min.The wait is over! The CD is here at last, and includes all 11 tracks present on the vinyl version released back in 1987. The 2 tracks not listed in the content are "Upside Down Guitar Solo" (between "Better Off Dead" and "The Hand") and "Stick 'em" (between "Put The Hammer Down" and "Children Of The Night").For those of you unfamiliar with HELLION, this heavy-metal album features scorching vocals by the "queen of hell", Ann Boleyn. Other than the guitar parts, the musicianship is basic but adequate, with good power and generally straightforward tempos. My favorite song is the title track, with smokin' guitar breaks. Not particularly original, but enjoyable from start to finish."
Amazing Vocals! Cool Guitars!

"I saw this band back in the days of Headbanger's Ball on MTV. This is cool stuff. I am really glad that it is available again."

"Ann's vocals are fantastic and classic metal!
Chet Thompson's guitar work is show stopping as usual. One of the most under rated guitar players of his time.
This album as a package will blow any metal heads socks off. Incredible stuff!"
