NOTES :
Produced by Brian Slagel.

Black 'n Blue's debut on vinyl. 
After the band had recorded  16-track demos in Portland, OR, during mid 1982, they send their demo tapes to potential managers, agents and record labels in Los Angeles. After receiving a positive response from Brian Slagel, who covered up-and-coming metal bands in his own fanzine, New Heavy Metal Review. Slagel offered to include Black 'n Blue's  demo recording of "Chains Around Heaven" on a heavy metal compilation record he was producing titled, Metal Massacre, with the likes of other newcomers, Armored Saint and Metallica. 
Black 'n Blue's "Chains Around Heaven" replaced Steeler's "Cold Day In Hell", that had opened the original version of this compilation.


* The version of Metallica's "Hit The Lights" differs between the first two pressings.
