BLACK TEARS The Slave – 1985 German pressed Steam Hammer Records vinyl LP, complete with original printed inner – SPV 08 1858
German band of the mid-eighties, playing a fantastic Accept-ish brand of 80’s metal. A lot like the first 3 Tygers of Pan Tang LPs too (vocals and guitar for sure).

Great old school Heavy Metal. Awesome bass?, so profound!! Uwe Koehler, Bonfire, Big Apple and Affair, does a great job on the bass guitar. Great album of the 80’s. Expensive but worth the money. Recommended to all metal fans of this area!!
Great songs like “WATCH OUT” (power ballad a la ACCEPT or TRANCE), and GLOOMY FATE (a la HIGH TENSION) could have given a push the top, if they had the adequate promotion of a great record label. Anyway, in the middle of the eighties there were hundreds of groups doing the same type of heavy metal in Germany and there was not cake for everyone. A real shame. Great band, great album!
