I like to assume that the creature on the front is named Randy. Randy looks a bit like a mutated Orson Welles, loves human flesh and held down a day job as the ill-conceived mascot of a Danish Heavy Metal band that shared his name. Sadly, Randy (the band) managed to only squeeze out this one great single and a demo before issuing Randy (the monster) a pink slip in 1987. This single contains two absolutely infectious, hook laden, melodic metal gems, "Shadows Are Falling," and the even better b-side "The Beast," which may or may not be about their bro, Randy (the monster.) This is another one of those headscratcher records that poses the question "Why weren't these guys picked up by a label?" These two songs are amazingly great and professionally recorded and executed. Was it because they were Danish? Was it their unfortunate mustaches? Really, only Randy knows. What I do know is that I could listen to these two songs all fucking day.
