6. Uncertain Future – Shock The System CD
Auction: 18 bids
Seller comments: OH MY GOSH! RAREST MELODIC METAL CD IN EXISTENCE! GEM. This listing is for an original 1993 INDIE Release from Melodic Metal Artists, “UNCERTAIN FUTURE,” with their IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND AND MEGA-RARE CD entitled, “SHOCK THE SYSTEM.” This band is argueably the RAREST and MOST SOUGHT AFTER METAL CD in the world. The band hails from KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI and they play amazing U.S. style MELODIC METAL, in the vein of QUEENSRYCHE, CRIMSON GLORY, and even a little RATT. Vocalist DERIC SPEAR delivers some great metallic vocals. Since it is such an unknown release on a tiny label, the production is so-so. It is a shame that these guys did not get a major record deal. Check out the pictures above of this MEGA-RARITY. The band released this CD in microscopic numbers, making it an unknown AND SOUGHT AFTER RARITY. I was fortunate to stumble upon this disc on a CD trip years ago. This is the an incredibly hard to find CD – MAKE YOUR BID COUNT ON THIS MEGA-ELUSIVE RARITY! A must for all fans of the genre. CD has a few light marks not affecting play – and all inserts VERY-GOOD – some minor waviness.TRACKLISTING: 1)The Green, 2)Someday, 3)Shock The System, 4)Paradise And The Nobel Savage, 5)Innerpeace, 6)Open Windows (Of Opportunity), 7)Victims Of Outrage, 8)The Armada, 9)Uncertain Future———–great cd!
