Speeed (yep, with 3 E's) was a project that linked up Seven Witches guitarist Jack Frost with two former Annihilator men and a German bassist, resulting in 1999's Powertrip Pigs. Most of the album is in the mid-tempo power realm, though occasionally they justify their name by speeding up to thrash speed. Vocalist Aaron Randall hadn't been heard from in six years, but he puts in a powerful performance, and his forceful vocals paired with Frost's hardened power metal riffing made this a pretty good album, though one that didn't get much publicity. Presumably this was a one-album project.
