    check out the vids to see how great these guys are. Too bad they only cut one album. Can't find the other projects they have worked on.

    I would say most underated album of 90s hard rock/alternative metal... there are plenty of bands that are underated and more deserving of "most underated" of all time. I am going to check out the Daisy Chain links.

    Maybe the LOUDEST show I've ever heard in a club setting...and I've been to roughly 250. You can find more Matt Mercado on as another band he was in is called Daisy Chain. Some of the same tunes on this disc...with several FULL versions.

    a great album... sad to see its been so forgotten, or never discovered. Looks like The The song titles are mixed in with this band because of thier album Mind Bomb ... but there are a few tracks I don't recognize. Does anyone know of rare Mind Bomb singles or EPs? - Elijah
