The six titles are:
Heavy Metal Maniac (1983)
Violence and Force (1984)
Long Live the Loud (1985)
Better Live Than Dead (1990)
Unveiling the Wicked (1986)
+ EP "Feel The Knife" (1985) + "World War III" ("US Metal Volume 2" compilation/Shrapnel Records single 1982) + tons of collectors'/bonus videos, pics and interviews.
Megaforce Records will release "Violence and Force" on November 9, 2004, with the rest of the catalogue to follow in early 2005.
