In a few words:
A lot of underground heavy metal bands during 80's released very good albums. Hawk was one of them. Although guitarist Doug Marks is known for his instructional guitar videos, drummer Matt Sorum went to Guns 'N' Roses and the former drummer Scott Travis went to Judas Priest, few people are aware of this album. Unfortunately, after releasing their self-titled album the band split-up. So, what's the buzz? The album contains guitar riffs and melodies that stick to your mind. There are also plenty catchy refrains that you will easily remember. In short, here we have well-written songs of melodic heavy metal. Nothing more, nothing less. So, if you like bands like Fifth Angel, then give them a try.

Personal highlights:
"Tell The Truth", "Battle Zone" and " Perfect Day"
