  5. Hello

More quality instrumental/jam metal/rock from this talented trio. This is the last demo release of theirs after Edge of the Shadow (1989) and Fourth Estate (1988). No vocals again, but also quality songs that are not just meant to be shred-fests. Well – almost no vocals. There is someone answering a phone at the beginning of “Hello,” before it breaks into an 80s Miami Vice-ish beat (with guitars wailing over the top, of course). Two of these songs would go on to appear on later full length albums (“Juggernaut” on Finesse and Fury in 1994 and “Taste of Heaven” on See What I See in 1995). Also, it seems that one song is a newer version of a 1987 Beegle solo track – an earlier version of “Hello” can be found on the Dustbuster Demos collection.
