The Wait (off Kurt, X-Mist Records, 1996)

Often called Germany's answer to Shotmaker, and you can see why. The bass features very prominently, and the songs are full of power and drive. Never dull, always exciting and in your face. I loved them because you could sense how much they enjoy playing the music...they could shut up as well and have instrumental songs, something I've always valued in a band. A killer-live band, I'm sure, albeit they never made it down to Vienna.

The first LP as such is out of print, but you can get a double-vinyl repress together with second LP at X-Mist.
