Is there a reason why Lotus Cruise is blacklisted? Their 7 inch from 1983 sounds like standard NWOBHM to me. Allegedly a full length was released in 1984 entitled A Fistful of Heartache, though I can't find any samples or proof of its existence aside from some mentions on various forums. Here are samples of the single for consideration. Thanks.

Can't check the band right now, but it seems like they were once on MA and got deleted in 2010 for being Hard Rock:

I don't remember ever having listened to a full LP by these guys, so the decision back then must have been made based on the two single songs. That said, the material certainly sounds heavier, that what I remember, and these samples are also of better qwquality than those I had back then , so If I amy voice my opinion as the original blacklister, a re-evaluation and iopnions from current mods would certainly do no wwrong here.
