"Up From The Underground" is a collection of, who were at the time, the top up-n-coming progressive and power metal artists on the scene.
Some of the notable artists include: Without Warning (the tracks were taken from their Japan only release "Believe"), Tiles (who have released albums via Inside Out Music and Magna Carta, and have toured Europe with Dream Theater. The track "No Failure" was only featured on the Japanese pressing of "Fence the Clear"), The Quiet Room (released two albums on Metal Blade Records. These versions are from the "Introspect Sessions"), Psycho Scream (features guitarist Jim Dofka and Control Denied vocalist Tim Aymar), and a blazing rare track from Florida's Fatal Sin, who were close to being legends along with the likes of Atheist.
This is an essential purchase and at a budget price.
