Chicago Metalworks Battalion was an early 1980's compilation album featuring (as the title implies), Heavy Metal bands from the state of Chicago.
Some of the featured bands reputations have grown steadily over time, such as SLAUTER XSTROYES, DIAMOND REXX and SILENT RAGE, but there are also a wealth of more obscure artists present, such as PARADOXX, FELONY, BLACKSTAR, LUNACY, WARCRY, TORMENT and MAELSTROM.
The album was successful enough at the time to spawn at least one sequel, (perhaps more, i'm not sure), but it's very hard to find nowadays.
If you do track a mint original copy down expect to pay a hefty price to secure it.
