Horrible cover. Looks like David who's just started out with his first day in graphics art school designed it. Yuck. 

But I'll wait to hear the CD. Never been a fan of them, but I remember something about them in recent years moderately appeared to me. Did they work with Slamer at all?

I don't think so. Axe was (and probably still is) Bobby Barth's baby.

This album artwork is INFINITELY better than what was originally posted. I loved old Axe as well as the re-recordings, so I'm really looking forward to this.

From Escape Music:

Axe was formed in 1977 out of the ashes of “Babyface”, a Hard Rock band burdened with a top 20 hit... but on the Adult Contemporary Charts. The band was brought together by leader Bobby Barth. Pulling members from all over America to Gainesville Florida, where they lived in one house, wrote music, and practiced.

BobbyBarth, Michael Osborne, Michael Turpin,Teddy Mueller And Edgar J. Riley Jr

Axe was different in that the makeup of the band were all veterans of many years playing clubs and cover music, 4 lead singers, and all writers. Signing a deal before they ever played a gig. The band signed to MCA for 2 records, later on to Atco for 2 records, where they had success with the anthemic song Rock and Roll Party in the Streets” touring with almost every major act on the road. Judas Priest, Ozzy, Deep Purple, Kiss, Motley Crue, Cheap Trick, ZZ Top, and quickly became a touring staple in the arena rock world. The upward momentum ended tragically in the summer of 1984 when Micheal Osborne and Bobby Barth were involved in an automobile accident where Osborne was killed and Barth received a broken neck, but was able to recover. Not having the heart to continue without his best friend Osborne, Axe ended that day and rested Until the 1990’s, Axe once again rose from the ashes to record “Five” their fifth record and then onto the Crown, 20 Years From Home Volume 1 and 2, an Axe Anthology “Axeology” a DVD live from Sweden Rock in 2012, and now finishing their final record…"Axe the Final Offering"
