Re: Now Playing Thread

https://i.postimg.cc/FR8psKxH/folder.jpg Some great music on this. Inventive & really memorable epic songs distinguished by clever arrangements & truly outstanding guitarwork. At times, such as on 'Resistencia', there's an almost Mercyful Fate vibe to proceedings. Who knew that this was happening i...

Re: 1895 old reviews have been added to The Corroseum

Bravo. Very much enjoyed both reviews Alan, particularly your amusing musings on Aryon's possible motivations/justifications for that cover photo. In order not to be too disturbed by it i try to tell myself that they're all queued up outside the window trying to muster up the courage to ask the litt...

Re: Veterans of the Various-Wars - new Corro-comp-comp series

Thanks a million for this DaN, d/ling right now. I've thoroughly enjoyed all the compilations you & Keir previously curated so i'm sure there will be plenty to get excited about in this new series too. Extra kudos for taking a country-by-country approach, and for namechecking the 'Bloodstains...' se...

Re: 1895 old reviews have been added to The Corroseum

Great writing as always Alan. Incisive, informative & very humorous. Bravo sir. Re your conviction that " any time you see the word boogie in the title of a song that’s supposed to be heavy, you are asking for disappointment ", i'd largely agree with you but there are always a few exceptions to the ...

XIPE - Fly Of Phoenix (1986) Italy https://i.postimg.cc/fTTVQ9yF/Xipe.jpg Very odd band but credit where it's due, there are some great 'out there' ideas on this & the guitarist in particular plays an absolute blinder. 'Day Of The Endless Sin' somehow manages to remind me of 'Angel Rat' era Voivod (...

Re: "Did I hear that right?!"

Was just reading your RYM list Ernest & this one really made me laugh: Coroner Mental Vortex (1991) Ron Royce is the "Son of Lilith", & that's not all: My youth's my defence My beard is my weapon I really suck I've got the Moon... in my flares Bravo! :lol: In a roundabout fashion that made me recall...

Re: Best All female/Female Fronted Metal Bands

One that is almost never mentioned on this part of the globe is Sahara Yaacob. She was known as the malaysian Tina Turner, mostly because of her hairstyle and live presence, thou her music was pure classy heavy Metal. She had an amazing voice and incredible composers working for her. she might also...

Re:

The NWOBHM list them as 2 different bands, and none of the names of the 7" match up with the ones, so they're probably 2 different bands, yes. I'd say "SATANIC RITES" is a cliché enough name for a Metal band for there to be several bands using it. Do you have the original 7''? The names on "Which w...

Re: Now Playing Thread

Were the band very different stylistically in their previous incarnation as Black Trip? Don't think i ever heard them. Style is the same, only a little bit more of MAIDEN among ingredients. How are these LONE STAR? Thanks for the info, sounds like i need to do my Black Trip homework. This is the on...

Re: Now Playing Thread

Joseph Tholl vocals: Bread with peanut butter, of course, there are some chunks in the spread, all the more loveable bcs of that. :lol: Nicely put Noisenik. I actually wonder if my misgivings about his singing are down to the mix of the album, as i don't have any issue with the vox on their 45s. At...

Re: Now Playing Thread

http://e.snmc.io/i/300/s/b27fe75c00f94fa3a94512868ef87faa/6882349 Interesting record. There's some very good music on there but i still can't make up my mind about the singer. Having said that, the closing track, 'To The Light', is flawlessly epic, one of my favourite songs of the year. I also cred...

Re: Rare Videos/Clips

Yet another vintage biker documentary comes up trumps! Whilst watching the thankfully brief 1979 amateur documentary 'The Moon Rally', who should appear as the headline band at the rally's finale but Accrington NWoBHMers OXYM! Unfortunately, the footage itself was silent with just a dull narration o...
