Yeah Steve,Coroner are from Zurich Switzerland as you know,however they were very important to the German thrash scene because not only were they good,but they had ties with Tom of Celtic Frost to boost thier name as well as Tom G.Warrior wrote the "Spiral Dreams" track#7 off of the debut album "R.I.P." in 1987. Boy this album is "UNDERRATED" BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To me,Ron Royce's voice reminds me of a cross between X- Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno and Tom G.Warrior of Celtic Frost,and some of the riffs not all of them,but some of them remind me of Iron Maiden as well. I'm not to big on anything they released after this debut album but I will say along with you Steve that this band especially this album kicks serious balls and should be picked up by everyone who loves thrash metal. A+ in my book.

Painkiller, you forgot to add Coroner to the name of this thread. They were just as good, if not better, than the other 3, and just as important in the German thrash scene of the 80's.
