Awesome metal album of the 80's. Fast drumming, loud guitars and screaming vocals. This is what heavy metal is all about, but one question ? This CD is digitally remastered from what ? You can clearly hear in the background the original source which was taken from a record album. What happened to the original tapes ? Better than nothing I quess, once the music starts you can't hear the record sound and they did a good job of drowning it out at the end of each song. Still worth the money. I have a few cd's that were taken directly from a record album and remastered to cd. Anthrax "Fistful of Metal" was one.

Originally released in 1986, Unveiling the Wicked was the third album from Canadian speed metal merchants Exciter. This time around, guitarist John Ricci was replaced by Brian McPhee, who had played with the band back in the Jet Black days.

The lineup change brought a slight change in style. For the most part, Unveiling the Wicked is still in the signature Exciter style, dominated by high speed riffing and of course Dan Beehler's screeching vocals. The album has a more melodic and somewhat more commercial aspect though. Kind of like if Lizzy Borden or WASP recorded a speed metal album. It’s still a killer heavy metal record though, and has some great songs in “Shout It Out,” “Break Down the Walls” and “Live Fast Die Young.”

Unveiling the Wicked is the last of the classic ‘80s Exciter albums. If you’re a fan of the ‘80s speed metal sound in general (and bands like Apocrypha, Annihilator, Vicious Rumors and Helstar in particulare), Unveiling the Wicked, like the three Exciter albums that came before it, is a must-have release.

Edition Notes: Megaforce reissued Unveiling the Wicked in 2005. The album has been digitally remastered, though how satisfied you are with that remastering may vary. No bonus tracks, but it’s good just to have this album back in print after so many years.

For some reason Exciter fans consider the band to have faltered with this release. I actually totally disagree. I actually believe the band got better with Unveiling the Wicked. Don't worry, I will soon say why.

One thing why I view this album to be better than their previous 3 efforts is for the fact guitarist John Ricci departed. Personally I found his departure the best thing for the band. Not that I didn't like their first three albums, but his guitar playing was rather hum-drum and repetitive. This is where Unveiling the Wicked is better as it introduces new guitarist Brian McPhee. McPhee is a far better guitarist than Ricci the guitar solos are oh so much more fleshed out. It's like McPhee brought new life to a band that was wallowing in repetitiveness.

The album opens with Break Down the Walls, one of Exciter's best songs altogether. It opens with a cool drum intro and then jumps into a great guitar riff. McPhee does a great job at overlapping the rhythm and lead guitar sounds that make this more pleasant to listen to than past Exciter efforts. Beehler does some grand screaming on this track and the solos are just great. Can't get enough of this song!

Brainstorm is a little instrumental that leads up to the song Die in the Night. It's not bad but I tend to hit the skip button on this track to get the next song. Die in the night again as a great guitar riff with cool rhythms and a catchy chorus.

The fourth track I Hate School Rules was the albums one and only single and ironically the bands worst song on the album, let alone one of the worst Exciter songs of all time. Frankly it was written to appeal to those young Exciter fans out there by going against school authority. It's fine for young boys, but for grown men this song is a joke.

EXCITER is a really cool THRASH HEAVY METAL band from Canada....This is old school raw THRASH a la old Metallica, early Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.....The singer is the drummer, not a common thing but he screams like a angry fusion of Rob Halford and Paul Di'anno!!!!! This is a really great METAL BAND!!!!!!
