Nemesis - Pain (The Equalizer)

Here's a pretty damn good private press power metal 7" from Union NJ circa 1988. This one is pretty tough to find, only 200 pressed, but I got lucky and stumbled upon one recently at the local record shop. I've heard Nemesis described as thrash metal but they sound more power metal to my ears. 

The A-Side of this 7" Pain (The Equalizer)  is a rock solid powerful tune while the B-side Nemesis is not quite as promising, more of a mid tempo bouncy track that sounds like it was meant to appeal to the commercial side of things.  Regardless, this is an excellent record and well worth grabbing if you come across a copy....Dave G.
