It Is Finished [Anthology] by Taker

On April 1, 2014, Twenty Seven years after this bands humble beginnings Roxx Records is very proud to say that we will be releasing a long overdue full length release from TAKER entitled ‘It Is Finished – The Complete Anthology’. Roxx worked very close with Robert Bussey, one of the bands founding members, to come up with anything and everything we could find in the band’s recording history and personal archive. Once fully compiled with the best possible recordings we could find it was sent off to Sid ‘Ysidro’ Garcia (Deliverance, Ultimatum, Crossforce) to be completely remastered so that these long lost and nearly forgotten gems could be shared with the world one more time and for the first time EVER digitally and on CD!

Old school metal with upright lyrics and out front vocals with so much range I wonder if this is all Kevin singing.
