Deathslayer (1983)

A young Brooklyn, New York-based band to watch out for is Deathslayer. They’ve just surfaced on the local club circuit and feature a hot guitarist in Johnny Hearts. Hearts claims his main influence as Randy Rhoads, and provides some impressive licks on the band’s four-track demo. The tracks are; ‘Journey For Life’, ‘Witches Haven, Devils Cove’, ‘Need For Life’ and ‘Passion Flight’ and all bare an Iron Maiden-type sound.

In the vocal slot is Suzanne Hearts, who resents the “women can’t be metal” attitude and is ready to prove it. The other members of the band are John Forte (bass) and Steve Alliano (drums).
