Unidos Por El Rock Vol. 1 LP 1983
Label: Victoria #: VLP-29 Country: Spain
Info: Though the design makes you think of a typical major label Rock-Sampler cash-in affair, this is actually a really intriguing piece of NWOSHM trivia with mostly obscure one-off acts. If not a Spanish "Metal For Muthas" then at least their "Scene Of The Crime" or "It's Unheard Of!". No further volumes were produced.

Side A:
1. SOBREDOSIS - Aliate
  Top-notch, pounding NWOHM with a sing-a-long chorus a la Grim Reaper.
2. BROKA - Tu No Eres El Mejor
  Groovy and shamelessly catchy Hard Rock that's hard to pin down.
3. BABEL - Con El Poder De Mi Latigo
  Fast, ancient 'nwobhm' excellence sounding like it's coming straight off the Roksnax comp. Those Black Widow-sounding flutes adds further coolness.
4. MALENA & BELCEBU - Destruccion
  Oh there's a Spanish Wendy O. Williams as well?! Who would've guessed, eh? Then suddenly from out of nowhere comes this almost Slayer'ish evil & chugging riff making things even more interesting...
5. DAMMA - Viajero Del Tiempo
  Fantastic epic prog-HR reminding of stuff like early Electradrive or the good parts of early Magnum.

Side B:
1. MALENA & BELCEBU - Hola Hermano
  Not as interesting as their A-side offering, this is classic R'n'R in a raw Hard Rock-framing.
2. BABEL - Nuestro Tren
  Great BÖC-sounding Hard Rock('n'roll) with wiggly keys..
3. DAMMA - El Principe
  Cool, catchy & pompy Hard Rock/prog like a heavy Meat Loaf or even heavier Genesis.
4. SOBREDOSIS - Chico
  Excellent 'nwobhm' riding down the same mountainside as Clooven Hoof and Tyrant. Both their contributions are earlier, different recordings than on their debut LP.
5. BROKA - Musica En Vivo
  Boring ZZ Top-sounding hard blues/boogie rock.
