Nemesis songs Product Information
Nemesis album for sale by Axe was released Jan 14, 2003 on the Wounded Bird label. An electrifying stew of hard rock, biker rock, Southern rock, and keyboard rock (we're talking 1983 after all), Nemesis may easily be Axe's defining statement: The band wants nothing more than airwave domination and to come into your town to help you party down. Ripped opener "Heat in the Street" bears a similar title to "Rock 'N' Roll Party in the Streets," Axe's biggest-ever hit from their previous offering, Offering (the CD reissue erroneously christens the song "Heat in the Night" but all that matters is Nemesis made it to disc), yet despite the obvious leitmotif, nothing can touch this red-hot, hard luck, fugitive tale which takes every right turn while crashing and burning in a league with the immortal Motörhead; Axe is always geared for the radio, though, throwing in keys and vocoder for a walloping slab of two-ton American rock. Nemesis CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

||a real 80 th rock|
"Nemesis" is really good album.this is a cradle of the 80th rock music.

||AOR, not heavy metal|
Axe were not heavy metal or hard rock, they were classic AOR like Journey, Boston, Kansas, Survivor etc ... great melodic hooks and big choruses with big keyboards. Just their image and album cover artwork created the misconception of heaviness, same thing happened to Kiss. Nemesis may be their best

||Great rocking band|
AXE hit their stride on their second release for Atco/Atlantic "Nemesis". Al Nalli who also produced many Blackfoot albums is back at the helm for this one and the combination yeilds impressive results again. "Heat in the Street" gets things off to a fast start. Interestingly enough labeled "Heat in The Night" on the back cover of the CD...woops. Why AXE never got big is a mystery to me, far superior to so many of those loser hair bands that made it big however briefly of course. The band slices through one number after another led by Bobby Barth who has the ability to deliver forceful vocals that match the heavy output the band delivers. Also a great cover of Edgar Winter Band's "Keep Playin' That Rock 'n Roll". Previously almost impossible to get on CD, reissued by Wounded Bird. Get it before we're down to just the three major drivel producing labels. It's at a great price, too. Much cheaper than Amazon.
By a reviewer (Dover, NH USA)
Very nice band, should have been bigger, a little comparison to white wolf from canada in the sense that they should have both hit it big

||One of my favorites.|
Axe - Offering, and Nemesis where one of the big heavy metal rock albums back in the day. The 80's sucked as far as hard rock was concerned. If you like Blackfoot and southern rock in general, give them a chance, you won't regret it. Kudos to Wounded Bird records for re-releasing these gems of rock. Little known, and under-reconized.
