Never heard it but here is some info (maybe the author can help you?).

Review (from http://www.manicmoshmagazine.com/metal.html)
Recorded 1989. Songs: Dancing In My Dreams / On The Rebound / Metal Screams / Warlord’s Wrath / Born To Rock //
No too many may know of this solo-project by singer Lori Wilde, formerly of Canadian cult-act BLACK KNIGHT. Gauging the nature of this product, there is no question about the commercial aim, and it even says so, as the set is split in 2 categories, one of which is stickered as ‘Commercial Rock’ (a-side) whereas the other is labeled as ‘Heavy Metal’ (b-side). This tag, needs a little clarification however, as it only but applies to this one song, “Warlord’s Wrath”, lifted from the original BLACK KNIGHT repertoire. This one concerns a driven up-tempo Metaler with a slight, melodic edge that, on the whole sounds like the Canadian BREAKER - meets – QUEENSRYCHE’s “Nightrider”. The chord-riffed, old-school rooted “Born To Rock” borrows at a large scale from RAINBOW’s “Lady Starstruck” and “Long Live Rock And Roll”. More towards the Mainstream side of things is the moderately paced HardRocker “Metal Screams” (previously appearing on the BLACK KNIGHT MLP as well); pretty basic in all but seriously entertaining with its ‘fist in the air & shout along theme’, and the vocals of Lori most convincingly operating in the rough, muscular mode.

The commercial attempt comes in the shape of 2 workouts that are all that… First there’s “Dancing In My Dreams”; a signature, mid-80’s Mainstream Pop Rocker, coupling the likes of BERLIN (“Like Flames”) to HEART, and “DAVID LEE ROTH (“Living In Paradise”) in a catchy, mid-paced setting with a melodic, ‘mellowed up’ feel and neat, up-range vocals. “On The Rebound” is all-out US Radio-Rock, dusted with 80’s Mainstream Rock features, including synths usage, double sung / dubbed lead vocals, and a sticky theme. On the whole, this set of 2 comes out as the superior offering as they are right on it, sporting all the right moves with a strong niche for composure and detail, and with a broad production to match. Chances are, if this thing had been circulated just a few years earlier, it might have gone places… By ’89, the big-hair thing (as depicted on the front-print) and the Pop oriented Rock sound had already faded big time, and so did Lori’s career…

1. Dancing In My Dreams
2. On The Rebound
3. Metal Screams
4. Warlord's Wrath
5. Born To Rock
