I'm Rolando from Costa Rica.
To me was 'Thundersteel' in a tape (oh those days) an American acquaintance gave me around 1997 with various bands/songs.
Eventually another friend listened to it, and told me how good was the band and that I should get the album. After purchasing "Thundersteel" I was sold into the band, acquiring all the material (except Rhett era) and still follow them
Favorite albums: "Fire Down Under", "Thundersteel", "The Brethren of the Long House". Favorite songs: way too many.
Oh yeah, and eagerly awaiting "Immortal Soul"
