Released in 1987, Stricken By Might by New York City's E-X-E is usually classified as thrash. I think it's a little more post-Maiden, than Kreator or Dark Angel.
Metal Hell is the highlight of the album. It's main riff is a classic metal gallop with some sweet soloing: count me in!
About Metal Monday
Luis discovered metal sometime while in Catholic middle school - born of part rebellion and some incurable urge to hear as many palm muted low e-strings as possible - metal became an obsession of his as a teenager.
Metal Monday's is our chance every week to headbang with all of you (if that's your thing).
