Lute FP Ah, dearest 80s. What a wonderful decade, where technology made so many things possible but we were still naively unsuspecting of its duplicity.

This album rocks. Falling somewhere between Motörhead and Scorpions, if such were possible- straightforward rhythms with killer melodic vocals that stick with the rhythm. As much rock as metal, with the tasteful guitar work tilting things more towards the latter.

Re-releasing obscure metal is a fucking genius idea. Thanks Dying Victims Prod!

Mungo I dig it! This album felt like a soundtrack to a cheesy action movie in the future. It also reminded me of Krokus a lot. I definitely recommend this one. Favorite track: Claws From The Night.

I see the red lights they all lie on my way and all these strangers they love me if I pay standing in the shadow she gives a wink to me I see dejection there is no place to be I feel the fever it burns me down there is no doubt This game is not Not for the innocent This place is not Not for the innocent I just see her face and I’m hypnotized I feel, I cannot speak I’m drowning in her eyes I feel the fever It burns me down there is no doubt This game is not Not for the innocent This place is not Not for the innocent

A legend breaks heaven cannot wait A misty touch has loosened from the night so evil so evil claws from the might so evil so evil The prophecies they all became so real A burning ache it’s all that you can feel so evil so evil claws from the might so evil so evil What are you gonna do what are you gonna say How can you really see how can you slip away Who is wrong or right the claws from the might

Two years ago death found you hot you were a killer Rocktober Blood You lie in grave but dead you’ re not you come out soon Rocktober Blood Back on the stage you’ re acting hot you kill them all now Rocktober Blood So stop this dream alter the scene you ruin it all those themes are dull So stop this dream hear what I mean it’s your concern you have to turn

They see the vision fall right on the sea they can’t believe their eyes it cannot be But they see a swan it makes them blind and it pulls a boat a golden rind And the guardian the great Grail Knight he stands on the punt and comes to strike he will defend the broken law but they are not allowed to ask so: Don’t ask about his name he can’t give a reply Don’t ask about his name he’s got a reason why Who is guilty he’s Lohengrin and pays a promise now Don’t ask about his name he can’t give a reply Don’t ask about his name he’s got a reason why

One more day in a cold room my world is turning around but in all of these vacuum there is a wild calling sound I see my life at a dead lock feel all the iron bars I can’t see over the big top but I will reach the stars I roar my scream with all my might all I can do is this I feel like a lion I feel the rage Feel like a lion I wanna turn the page Feel like a lion a lion in the cage Feel like a beast of prey I see the light it is gleaming I feel it in my heart Now I can trust my feeling it breaks my own dark No more days in a cold room and no turning around so I hope it’s the right tune I hear a wild calling sound come on people you can look at my face so try to hold me I°1l1 find another place

Get It Now 04:37
I She looks good she looks hot she’s got a beautiful heat Don’t look around cause she’s too fast try to give her the beat you have lost all her number now try to get it back you really know that it’s your turn you only need some luck No way to escape this is your game No chance to get off she can’t slip away the game is over she has to pay the tables are turned So get it now So get it now see your chances your advantage She’s got eyes she’s got legs and she is conscious of that and her bum not to disdain long hair falls on her back you can remember the first time where you felt like a mug now you can make amends for all you need is pep

I know my heart*s been so cold during the last long years I thought it was my destiny my eyes would never see tears when I look in your eyes I don’t know what it means no doubt, I’m crazy bout you Oh I am searching I feel like a fool don’t stop cruel to the heart never never feeling cool Day and night Cruel to the heart Day and night Cruel to the heart cruel to the heart, cruel to the heart day and night cruel to the heart Take a look at me now I take a look at the sky my heart begins to find a life now I’am flying high I see all over the world see all these dancing girls won’t take a look at my fears

Hawk Of May 03:21
You had a dream, you got a flame you got a flame which dispel your pain Let it shine and don’t get mad it give’s you a thrill, you never had Take right, right for the light take right, and stand your fight take right Watch out Hawk of May look out find your way Fighting Hawk of May Striking to another day You wanna fly, fly on a wing you have to prove it and you have to win see the lightning, shining in the air see the power, feel it everywhere Take right, right for the light take right, and stand your fight take right
9.
Never trust a woman I’ve seen a lot of women they were going through my life they all behave like ladies but they’ re all cut like a knife You can believe me what I say to you tonight you can believe me, so be careful I heard a lot of pledges and believed in all the words but even when I turned round the others set to work You can believe me what I say to you tonight you can believe me, so be careful Never trust a woman No more Never trust the girls Never trust a woman No more Never trust the girls Get outa my way what I want to say I won’ t see your face

about

RELICS FROM THE CRYPT, the newly founded sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS, is proud to present a reissue of MP’s cult-classic second album, Get It Now, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Originally released in 1987 on the short-lived Steps Records, Get It Now, was the second recorded statement of Germany’s MP. Their debut album from the year before, Bursting Out (The Beast Became Human), retained all the electricity and urgency of youth, and subsequently become a cult record for its raw verve. A year older and presumably wiser, the power-trio unleashed a more finessed follow-up in Get It Now. While the band hardly wavered in their approach between the two albums – still spanning the early hot-rockin’ throes of post-NWOBHM to the nascent rumblings of speed metal and its subsequent thrash offshoot, and of course the more mainstream stylings which lingered across all those idioms – MP here focused their songwriting into a more streamlined push ‘n’ pull that was 100% HEAVY METAL personified.

And yet, its year of release provides some (in-hindsight) context for Get It Now’s unique and underdog nature, which has thankfully made it an enduring album. Not only in Germany but across the world, traditional metal was on the decline as “hair metal” crept up the pop charts and thrash metal exploded all across the international underground – and lest we forget the first album-length rumblings of death metal. In this landscape, where subgenres started taking hold and “heavy metal” as both a term and especially a musical style & subculture became much more defined, MP doggedly defied the norms and stuck to their increasingly gleaming guns. As such, Get It Now retains a rich, metal-for-metal’s-sake balance between slick ‘n’ speeding burners and grimy fist-shakers. And while the debut album conspicuously nodded toward metal culture with “MP (Metal Priests),” here do MP continue to acknowledge that culture through the wider world’s acknowledgement of metal culture with “Rocktober Blood,” about the cult horror film of the same name. Elsewhere, the production was taken up a couple notches without losing that raw verve that so endeared the band’s debut album, arguably making Get It Now the fullest expression of MP’s true metal might.

MP continued on for one more album before changing that moniker to Melting Point, the title of their 1992 album still under the MP handle. Like many overlooked albums within the metal pantheon, Get It Now never truly got its due “back in the day,” but thankfully, it sounds surprisingly fresh today, and RELICS FROM THE CRYPT hopes this dog will have its day with this long-overdue reissue!
