WRATHCHILD AMERICA / Climbin' the Walls (1989)

It saddens me to admit it but in truth there’s nothing spectacular about Climbin' the Walls.  It’s a decent late 80’s metal album with solid drumming, some respectable Iron Maiden moments, and thrash elements that serve their purpose but never manage to drag the songs out of the mediocre pit.  Despite its failings I really like it.  There is a faithful (if uninspired) cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘Time’ which is what first brought it to my attention a long long time ago.

Songs of Note: No Deposit, No Return; London After Midnight
