Sadly, these bad boys of Axe never recieved the attention like they truly deserved cause they can do anything from power pop to grinding metal, and 1983 was the turning point of heavy metal due to the success of Motley Crue and Quiet Riot and Axe could've been in the same league with them, anything from Journey to Motorhead, the classic cuts are Heat in the Street, All Through the Night, She's Got the Power, Girls Girls Girls (my favorite), Eagle Flies Alone, Keep Playing That Rock 'n' Roll (originally done by Edgar Winter) and Let the Music Come Back. This album is highly recommended to those 80's rock fans but beware, this album is extremely hard to find and the first time I got this album (on Cassette) was at a local pawn shop and a year later it got eaten, then the following year I got it on vinyl and still have it to this damn day.

Found the tape at the Salvation Army for .50 cents about a month ago, not sure who Axe was. Nemesis is a typical 80's metal album. Their style fits in with groups like Motley Crue, Great White, Poison, W.a.s.P. etc. Not knowing anything about the band I didn't have very high expectations from the album. It was surprisenly good. Songs like Heat in the STreet and Young Hearts just rock. The album never really gets dull, just sounds similiar to the rest of the groups of their time, so a pretty cool album if you can find it at a good price.

1983's Nemesis was the fourth album from melodic rockers Axe, and came hot on the heels of their breakthrough hit Offering.

It's always a bit tricky to pin down Axe's sound. They're a pretty straightforward melodic rock band along the lines of April Wine, but with a heavy streak as well as a flair for radio-friendly rock anthems. There's no real "Rock n' Roll Party in the Streets" moment on Nemesis, but songs like "Girls, Girls, Girls" and the Seger knock-off "Keep Playing that Rock n' Roll" come close. There's also a southern rock vibe to Nemesis, which probably explains why Bobby Barth did so well when he went on to join Blackfoot.

Nemesis is just an all-around enjoyable melodic rock album, with plenty of great songs and not much in the way of filler. If you're an 80's rock fan, Nemesis is definitely an album you'll want to check out, especially now that it is officially available on CD. Unfortunately, guitarist Michael Osbourne was killed in a car accident (that also injured Bobby Barth) soon after Nemesis's release, effectively ending Axe's career. It would take another 14 years before they released another album.

NOTE: Wounded Bird reissued Nemesis in 2003. It's the first time the album has been officially released on CD. My understanding is that the Wounded Bird reissues have not been digitally remastered, but it sure sounds like they've done some clean up work on this album. Another plus is that they've included the song "Midnight Drives Me Mad" which was originally exclusive to the cassette version of Nemesis. They reissued 1982's Offering as well. Now if only they could get their hands on the long out of print Axe and Living on the Edge.

Back in the 80's, when I was devouring every bit of metal I could get my hands on, somehow this one got overlooked. My bad. This album is great. Very much of the period when it was recorded. I'd put it right up there with all the great bands of the day. Had their guitarist not met an untimely demise I suspect they would have been much bigger.
If you read these reviews, kudos to you guys. Wish I'd known you sooner...

With the band on a roll after the success of the album Offering, Axe came out with Nemesis in 1983. The hit song was Heat In The Street, a lightning fast song that was played on album rock stations. Axe is the greatest rock band most people have never heard of.
