Watchmen's "Fear No Evil" on the compilation album 'Under­ground Metal', was heavy and strong.  Unfortunately this is not nearly as heavy but does contain some excellent songs. Kevin Whistler, now the drummer for Bloodgood plays drums here while Les Carlson turns up on backing vocals, so Bloodgood seem to have been quite heavily involved in the album. I would put Watchmen in the same category as Bloodgood, not quite metal but rather very hard rock.with a touch of AOR, keyboards playing a large part on the album. There are three softer songs, two of them making use of sax, which doesn't quite fit/Best Friend" also being far too sloppy for a rock band. "One Day" is the best of the slower songs making use of piano and electric guitars. All in all a competent set.
