Dark Star

Melodic NWHOBM band best known for their one 'hit', "Lady Of Mars", which was featured on the Metal For Muthas Vol 2 compilation as well as on their 1981 debut album (though, to these ears, the real standout song was the excellent "Kaptain America"). A rarer second album, Reel To Real, apparently more of an AOR album, was released six years later in 1987.
