I talked to my friends in Exodus and when they told me, before they did “Bonded by blood”they already had like two hundred gigs in their pocket. Though that album sounds so much tighter and so much better because they were used to the material and the material was ready to roll. Listening to “Endless Pain”is very chaotic, as we didn’t get any gigs in Germany at the time, the scene was still developing then, there was no such thing.

Back to the Start is a great return from a band that has remained largely inactive since the release of their debut album way back in 1984. That album was of course the cult AOR classic Shaft of Light, which still fails to get it’s due recognition. Not from me though as it is one of my favorites of the genre and would easily sit proudly amongst my top twenty AOR albums of all time.
