Re: Is It Really Metal?

As easy as it can sometimes be to romanticize the 'good old days', when it came to purchasing records it really was a perilous time. I recall a particularly painful mistake i made around 1980/81 as a callow youth scouring the racks of my local record store for something vaguely metallic & cheap ...

Re: Shakespeare

I'm surprised some enterprising label hasn't compiled those great Swedish 45s of yesteryear. It still seems an oddly overlooked scene, particularly when almost anything heavy from the '80s was getting the anthology CD treatment a few years back. Having said that, it may be that the old Swedish scene...

Re: Recent Metal Finds (2016)

If you like the Zeke 'Death Alley' style, give Speedtrap's 'Straight Shooter' a try.
It's got a more Metallic sound, but shares a lot of that same manic intensity.

Re: Metal hunting in Amazon

I have to hold my hands up here. I genuinely thought this was gonna be a post about Metal hunting in the actual Amazon. I confess I was a little disappointed not to be reading about an encounter with some lost tribe of indigenous headbangers who worship Cronos as a deity, and sacrifice posers on an ...

Re: I swear I heard another song with the same vocal line

Sorry, i was only joking. I meant the melody & rhythm of the vocal line in the song which you provided reminded me in general of 1980's Eurovision song contest entrants, rather than anything specific. A bit cheesy, in other words.

Re: "DemoLition" - forthcoming book on 80's demos

Plantweed, a few years back there used to be a member of this board called 'Boris' who had a large collection of original NWoBHM demos. Over the course of his sleuthing he had amassed a lot of information & contacts including many original band members. He's no longer active here, but he could b...

Re: RIOT : The Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 1 (1976-1980) 6CD Set

Contents have not been announced, this has just shown up on their discography. Of course I love the early material but the Thundersteel era I listen to a lot too. Looking forward to hearing whatever gems are unearthed. Ah, that would explain why the only mention of it that i could find was a brief ...

Re: "DemoLition" - forthcoming book on 80's demos

Haven't read Stark's book, but the one Malc has done and which I do own dates back to the late 90's or early 00's. There was no google at that time, no M-A, no gigabytes of mp3s circulating on the www. I can't compare those circumstances with the situation nowadays. It's also focused on one thing a...

Re: QUAYDE LAHÜE (new Olympia, WA HM/HR band)

The entirety of the production was done by the band themselves. From the recording to the artwork. There are assuredly flaws throughout, but in effect it's an accurate snapshot of the band at the time the music was made. What better representation? In short, like it or lump it! It's nice that you'r...

I need to buy this box set too. Early material by them live or otherwise is essential. I guess you know High Roller has so Riot releases in there "to be released" list? : DLP RIOT - Archives Volume 1: 1976-1981 CD RIOT - Archives Volume 1: 1976-1981 DLP RIOT - Archives Volume 2: 1982-1983...
