    One of the most praised & cultified of the indie NWOBHM compilations, and for a good reason. The 2 earlier releases on the label were the singles of featured act SPARTA.
    'Scene of the Crime' is an obscure NWOBHM compilation featuring Savage, Sparta, Tyrant, Panza Division and Manitou (not to be confused with the Finnish Heavy Metal band).

    Tracklist:
    Side A:
    1. PANZA DIVISION - Blitz
    Hard Rock standard.
    2. MANITOU - Manitou
    Dark, heavy, psychedelic, brilliant! Like a mix of Legend, Hawkwind and Dawnwatcher.
    3. SAVAGE - Let It Loose
    Excellent Speed-NWOBHM covered by Metallica a few months later, thus becoming legendary.
    4. SPARTA - Lords Of Time
    One of the heaviest & most underrated bands of the NWOBHM scene. A stomping, evil MONSTER of a song w/ supercatchy, sledgehammer riffing.

    Side B:
    1. TYRANT - Day Of The Knight
    Real cool, amateurish Metal w/ a faint mysterious vibe. No relation to the "Hold Back The Lightning"-Tyrant.
    2. PANZA DIVISION - The Day Delta 4 Played Mars
    Should be a generic rocker but for some reasong I love this song. Maybe it's the camp sci-fi narrative?
    3. SAVAGE - Dirty Money
    Mid-pace Metal standard (high)
    4. TYRANT - Sanctuary
    Epic yet somewhat simple Metal w/ moody aucustic parts that in no way softens up the overall sound.
    5. MANITOU - Overlord
    A bit more r'n'r than their previous song but still great NWOBHM that would have fit in nicely among those early Heavy Metal Records acts.
