HOMEGROWN MELODIES

Masterphobia
Masterphobia
(local tape)

What can't take sunlight, lyrics that make sense or a lack of testosterone? Vampires and Ozzy Osbourne? You're half-right. The correct answer is speed metal, which is what these bruisers do rather well. The best thing about go-fast metal is that it thumps along at an energetic pace. The worst thing is that it's all over much too soon. Next.

Inaday
Southbound
(Imperial Records)

It looks like a band. Sounds like a band. Yet this tape arrives with no personnel listed (there's a photo, of course). And after checking with several Valley music cognoscenti, no one has ever seen the band live. What's here is decent, mainstream rock. Nothing fancy. Vocals need work. Under the "Kids, don't try this at home" category: Once you've erred by covering the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes," don't compound it by trying to become the vocal reincarnation of Roger Daltrey.
