Mad Alien, the German act that was active from 1989-1995 will re-issue a compilation of material via a self-titled release through Kathargo, under its "Heavy Metal Classics" line, on August 29th.
Coming into the Rock scene in 1989 with the EP "We Are Alive," Mas Alien showed a lot of potential with their melodic Heavy Metal/Hard Rock. "Combining a fine vocalist, good guitars, outstanding songwriting and the typical 80's feel, this high quality was 'standard' for all songs also on the forthcoming full length in 1992." Mad Alien was a victim of the grunge movement in the early 90's and faded out by 1995.
The track list for the compilation is:
1. We Are Alive
2. Creature of the Storm
3. One of These Days
4. Lady Desireous (Opus 9,7)
5. Time War
6. Shout it Out
7. Kwisatz Haderach (Part I - III)
8. Only for You
10. Nightmare on Elm Street
11. Fire on Ice
12. Opus 8,5
14. Lovesong More...
