220 VOLT – Two Hundred Twenty Volt [Music On CD reissue / first time on CD] (2018)
Pioneers of ’80s Swedish metal / hard rock, 220 VOLT is considered one of the essential acts for the genre’s develop in Scandinavia. Their self titled debut album “220 Volt” – also known as “Two Hundred Twenty Volt” – curiously never was officially released on CD, except in Japan during the Nineties.
Fortunately excellent Dutch label Music On CD finally made justice to this album releasing it few weeks ago for the first time on CD in Europe.
“Two Hundred Twenty Volt” hasn’t been remastered, but the new digital transfer technique – which augment the signal / Dynamic Range without distortion – makes wonders here. The album comes full out of the speakers, much more defined than the previously only Japan official CD press.
Highly Recommended (thanks to Devon for this one)
