Iceman 04:41
Iceman Stabbing Pain Is crawling thru your mind It won't let go even though your satisfied It's taken over It's taken all control of you just one last time Today we're getting over become a slave and try try try (Chorus) Try the Iceman Try the Iceman He kills as you begging for your life This drug You know you can't survive It's taken all control of you just one last time Today we're getting over become a slave and try try try (Repeat Chorus) Don't try the Ice

Blind Lead the Blind All along we all believe In what's been done and said Bureaucratic policy Is drilled within our heads Honesty and trickery Go one in hand and hand Confusion is the sole device For those that rule the land Follow if you want Living in their lies Till desperation turns And cuts you like a knife (Chorus) When the blind lead the blind No no direction plain to see When the blind lead the blind Oh can't you see Busting through the barriers To leave your children slain Conquering your civil rights To broaden their domain Honesty and trickery Go one in hand and hand Confusion is the sole device For those that rule the land Follow if you want Living in their lies Till desperation turns And cuts you like a knife (Repeat Chorus)
3.
Freedom Fighters Help me I'm falling Off the wall That kept me trapped inside My eyes have seen with disbelieve The horrors of the past When our children cry with opened minds We all are free at last (Chorus) Free from all the chains that bound them Free to hold their own They call themselves the freedom fighters We are marching And calling out for all To stand by our sides Together we'll not meet defeat Our bond is strong and stands When our children cry with opened minds We all are free at last (Repeat Chorus)
4.
Still in Love with You I've been so patiently Waiting for our time to be Together we shall make it thru the storm With our heads held high We'll walk out free Of all our sins Come pray with me In hand in hand We'll soon be joined as one (Chorus) Cause I am still in love with you I am still in love with you Not long before I first met you I thought I found a love so true But soon it all became A burning hell So remember this I stand here true No matter what I'll stay with you Thru hell's high waters We'll remain to sail (Repeat Chorus) I am still in love with you I am still in love
5.
Straight Through the Heart Take a long hard look Deep within my eyes you'll see Gotta have you gotta feel Gotta get your body close to me (Repeat Chorus) Straight thru the heart That's the way it goes Straight thru the heart Got to let me go Makin' love is oh so wrong When I'm in the sack with her Crack the whip oh so strong How it makes my body burn Straight thru the heart Got to let me go Straight thru the heart Sweat Begins to flow It couldn't take it My heart was torn apart Once we passed go She went back to start I couldn't take it My heart was torn apart Take a long hard look Deep within my eyes you'll see Gotta have you gotta feel Gotta get your body close to me (Repeat Chorus)
6.
Here to Fight Standin' for rights We can't be wrong For all we know We can stand here fighting Everything we know Standin' tall for what we are Fighting hard it's hard to fall Chorus: Standin' for rights we're here to fight Standin' for rights We're here to fight Standin' for rights We're here to fight Standin' for we the people of The stricken land We accept our troubled world As best we can For we know they won't get far Setting fire to all we are

Clock Strikes 12 Choose your weapons Pick a side 'Cause we don't see eye to eye You know your thoughts Are really out there You speak your mind So it seems But oh so far from what you mean Perhaps it's hard To have a civil conversation You say high And I say low Now isn't that the way it goes Your tamp and holler Pointing all the blame When all along it's plain to see Your fruit fell farther From the tree Until this day Your life Has never been the same Chorus: When the clock strikes twelve You can feel the sky Shake with anger the battles born When the clock strikes twelve You can tell no lies To all that feel the pain of war I'll take the high side You take the low You know I'll follow you No matter where you go We'll be behind you Through thick and thin There'll be no doors to let you in From the east side Westside North and south No time to bargain Your times run out From the east side Westside North and south Don't brother runnin' We'll take you down (Repeat Chorus)
8.
Give It All You Got She's never satisfied She get what she needs To get you where she wants you She's determined to succeed Straight thru the evening pouncing Until first of morning light She's wrapped around you frantically ‘Til morning turns to night Sayin - Don't get tired Oh - Get higher Sayin - Don't get tired Oh - Get higher (Chorus) Give it all you got She never lets you go She never lets you stop She's singing Let me have it one more time Give it all you got Give it to me baby Like rapid fire piercing She will penetrate your heart And have you feeling helpless As the fun begins to start You're paralyzed and hypnotized You've fallen in her trap Why didn't someone tell me She's a nymphomaniac (Repeat Chorus)

Cut Me Loose 04:09
Cut Me Loose There no doubt You lead to lives Never seen ya twice With one guy Your crazy on the run Playin' for fun You are the grand prize 'Cause your engines rough to start It never seems to hit the spot Your love light shines To Hypnotize The odds are 10 to 1 Can't you see the love is gone You can tell by the tears in my eyes I try to show you my desire But you just turn and walk away (Chorus) So Cut me loose now Let me go Cut me loose 'Cause I've been waiting patiently Cut me loose now Let me go 'Cause you're in love But not with me Lie after lie I'm found hanging on your line Listening to the stories About once upon a time You lead me on With a scent that's all your own Speaking only words Why can't it be with you alone (Repeat Chorus)
10.
Middle of the Night I lie awake Deep in the night Sit alone till first light Can't believe what I saw It's near the end It won't be long No it won't be long (Chorus) In the middle of the night Can't you see In the middle of the night It won't be long In the middle of the night Spy satellites Probe the skies Focusing electric eyes Watching over Tracing all It's near the end It won't be long (Repeat Chorus) If we don't cease now It's gonna be to late Time is running out We gotta make the change (Repeat Chorus)
11.
Do Ya? 03:39
Do Ya I just want you to see What loves about dear Oh can't you feel the heat Burning up I'll feel your fantasies So what you want Your gonna remember me Feel my love (Chorus) Do ya do ya want me Do ya want me tonight Do ya do ya want me Do ya want my love I don't stop to waste no time Our love grows deep inside You'll be the only one Burning up My plan you'll find it clear Is just to keep you here You'll find a way to cum (Repeat Chorus) I don't stop to waste no time Our love grows deep inside You'll be the only one Burning up My plan you'll find it clear Is just to keep you here You'll find a way to cum (Repeat Chorus)

about

Formed in 1983 after singer Vincent Jiovino (Vincent James) and drummer Donald Siudmak (Don Versailles), wanting to go a different direction musically, would split from their previous band SS STEELE.

The duo would take the band's bassist with them and later add lead guitarist Mitch Ryzuk (R J Mitchell). Siudmak and Jiovino immediately started collaborating full time on original material. The band would begin to gig throughout the Tri-State area presenting a glam metal image typical of the time, full of pyrotechnics and spectacle. As buzz grew throughout the circuit PLATINUM would decide to add rhythm guitarist Dean Ferriola in 1987, becoming a five-piece squad. Around this time the band would replace their bass player Mike Paradisis (Mike Michaels).

The band would soon record their first demo. They would also film a promotional video for the track ‘In the Middle of the Night’. PLATINUM continued writing, gigging, and paying dues for the next several years playing well-known venues such as L’Amour in Brooklyn and The Cat Club in Manhattan while shopping their demo to labels gaining the attention of Atlantic Records but no deal was signed.

In 1988 PLATINUM entered Penny Lane Studios to lay down new tracks, the following year they would self-release their 4-song debut EP “Here to Fight”. Relentless promotion would follow seeing the EP sent out to magazines and fanzines around the world, soon fanmail would begin to pour in with glowing reviews following.

PLATINUM would then see a line-up change with the exit of lead guitarist Ryzuk just a few months before them getting signed to German label Rising Sun Productions. He would be replaced by Vic LeCar for the debut album “Iceman” recorded in December of 1990 at Chalet Studios in Ontario, Canada. The album would be released by Rising Sun Productions on vinyl and CD in the U.S., Europe and by King's Ind. on cassette in Indonesia. Much promotion would follow both in the U.S and abroad seeing the band doing radio interviews and live shows throughout Europe. During this time the band’s image would also be evolving to more coincide with the power metal directions the band had always been going.
