Elixir  


A typical late-period NWOBHM band, Elixir's Son Of Odin release generated a fair bit of interest in its day. Also of interest is the appearance of ex-Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr on their followup release (not reviewed here).

After many years apart, the first album lineup reunited in 2001 and have since released a new album, The Idol. Additionally, the band's second album, Lethal Potion, has been re-released (quoting from the band) "as it was meant to be", with the original mix, additional tracks, and a different title: Sovereign Remedy.
