XYZ – Hungry [Axe Killer remaster +1] +Extra / Out Of Print
Together with their first album, this was requested here as well, XYZ second release “Hungry” remastered by Axe Killer / Bad Reputation Records including a bonus track.
While this strong band fronted by vocalist Terry Ilous wasn’t considered by rock critics as a top act from the late Eighties / early Nineties US Hard Rock scene, most major, platinum-seller bands and musicians of the genre mentioned XYZ as personal favorites.
Aiming to rock harder than on their debut album but still maintaining a polished sound, for second record “Hungry” XYZ called guru Neil Kernon (Dokken, Judas Priest) to co-produce together with George Tutko (Lita Ford, Eric Martin).
This association resulted in a more straightforward, no-frills bluesy hard rock album plenty of energy, great vocals and sizzling guitar work.
This quite hard to find, now out of print (135 Euros) remastered reissue by Axe Killer / Bad Reputation Records delivers a noticeable improvement in sound and balance than the original release, including the bonus track “Two Wrongs Can Make A Right”.
To make it more complete, we have added the Japanese edition bonus track “Highlife”. Killer rocking stuff.
Note: this is not the version floating the net, it’s a fresh accurate rip from original CD.
Highly Recommended. Only at 0dayrox
