Obscure hard-rock / proto-metal beast from Belgium, originally released in 1978 as a private edition of 300 copies.

Dangerous, aggressive sound with wall of fuzz guitars and manic speed drumming.

Highly recommended to anyone into 'Raw Power' era Stooges, 'Back in the USA' era MC5, Pink Fairies, early Motörhead, Hawkwind, Acid Archives US obscurities like White Boy & The Average Rat Band, early NWOBHM bands and compilations like 'Bonehead Crunchers'.

The S to S album is one of those obscurities that have remained unknown to collectors of hardrock for many years. We present the first ever reissue with the band's story told for the first time.

S to S emerged out of the ashes of local band Etna, featuring the Cannella brothers: Fulvio on lead guitar and Mirco on bass along with George Abry on drums. After the demise of Etna, the Cannella brothers decided to form a power-trio: S to S was born.

Upon meeting producer Michel Dickenscheid, they were offered a deal: the band would help Michel to build a new recording studio in exchange of free studio time with the intention of recording their first album, which would be produced by Michel. So they built a state-of-the art studio with their own hands and soon after the recording of the S to S album started. Mirco switched from bass to guitar so they recruited a new bass player, Picci Salvatore, who abandoned the band just after the recording sessions. A friend of the band played occasional keyboards and Michel, the producer, played sax on 'I'm fool', the most psychedelic sounding song of the album, similar to early Hawkwind. The rest of the songs are prime examples of pure hardrock featuring layers and layers of fuzzed-out guitars and killer riffs by Fulvio, a monstrous sound created by producer Michel using primitive homemade pedal effects and up to four guitar overdubs.

The album was completed in early 1977 but remained in the shelf until the following year. The band members were very pissed off when they received the albums from the pressing plant and discovered that their manager had included a logo with Sig runes lettering in the cover without consulting them. Only 300 copies were pressed on their own Overcome label. Meanwhile Mirco formed a punk band named AcÚtylŔne but decided to concentrate on S to S soon after.

S to S continued right into the 80s with some changes in their line-up, playing many successful shows in Belgium, changing their style towards a more heavy-blues-rock sound, before splitting in 1982.

First ever reissue

Remastered sound

Insert with detailed liner notes by Pascal D'Hooghe (Belgian Metal History) and rare photos.
