    Obscure demo from a Chicago band called Target (active 1987-1989).
    The band seem to have featured two Swedish members (David and Jimmy).

    Amazing heavy/power metal with killer vocals.
    A live video with the band can be seen here.
    If someone know if they released something else please let me know.

    UPDATE: Complete version of the demo added (10 tracks, 5 unknown titles).
    Thanks to Messendger80 for the info!

    Robert Fesus - Guitar, Keyboard (Micheal Riser Band, Canyon, Diezel, Sam Lynn, The Squids, Vision)

    I have it - but the informatons i have is that they were from New Jersey...


    Hmm not 100%, I was just going after the bio by a member and their Facebook profiles.
    But yeah you never know, the band could have been based somewhere else.

    David Bergman
    I started playing violin and guitar at an early age, eventually favoring the guitar.
    By age 13 I began performing with small groups and community bands in Chicago.

    I think i got this from Reverbnation or Soundcloud 6 months ago from a christian musician that used to play in this band and he had these mp3 to download (among the acoustic/pop/folk/country/gospel stuff he is doing in recent years) and if i'm not wrong he wrote the band was based in New Jersey. Perhaps 1 day later we can find more infos about it and certificate exact location from the band...

    Ok, it was a band from Chicago, Illinois.

    But the demo had 10 tracks - not 5.

    It's pre-Das Krieg with a different line-up and more Power/Prog than D.K.
