The demos were recorded with former (and possibly the ultimate) Yngwie J. Malmsteen vocalist Jeff Scott Soto. Accompanying Vinnie and Jeff was Jimmy Waldo on Keyboards.

"Guitars From Hell" Demos (1989/90):
Vinnie was recording an album for Enigma records, with Robert Fleishman and Andre LaBelle, prior to that company either killing his contract or going bankrupt. What is clear from the demos is that the album was going to blow the original "VVI" album away in terms of sonics. Track 1 was planned to be the opening track on the album. Several songs were reworked for the EP in 1996 and may have been intended for use on "Guitarmageddon", which it is a real crime has not surfaced yet with songs like "Cockteaser" and "Brainsaw"! The full track listing of the album is unknown as it may have not been finalized or completed. Track 08 is a reworking of the Soto demo with nuclear guitars added.

1) Shocker
2) Truth
3) Nuke It
