The Hawaii mythical album ! Remastered edition CD enclosing an 8 pages booklet with texts, photos and 9 titles with the unbelievable Marty Friedman (MEGADETH) featuring !! Hawii are classic American heavy metal with a definite NWOBHM influence. After a short Hawaiian intro, the band blows through nine songs of furious heavy metal.
Hawaii was a heavy metal band formed in 1982 by guitarist Marty Friedman, originally formed as Vixen (obviously not to be confused with the 1980's all female band of the same name) in 1981. "One Nation Underground" (1983) is the title of the first full-length studio album from the band, while "Loud Wild and Heavy" was the band's follow-up EP (1984). This CD compiles both albums as well as a "Made In Hawaii" Vixen's EP, 1983. Legendary stuff!!
