LP    1983 "Burning The Ice". At least two different covers exist: one
           with blue and another with white lettering. The latter seems
           to be a limited edition thing. The Paradoxx version has a 
           blue lettering and sometimes a red sticker saying "Warning: 
           Contains shocking lyrics" on the sleeve. This issue also 
           contains a fold out black and white poster with a photo of the 
           band and the printed lyrics on the right side. All out of print.
