Re: Unknown NWOBHM demos and "demo only" bands

Maybe, but the Shooting From The Hip tracks are from a 1988 demo and the NWOBHM Demo Tapes CD says 1982. Not inconceivable that there could be 2 bands named Jackal. Does anyone have a tracklist for the NWOBHM Demo Tapes CD? EDIT: "Tearing Me In Pieces" is actually not from that demo, but "Tourniquet...

Re: Humble beginnings

I have recorded first four emission, afterwards I relied on memory. In these next I was rewarded with tracks by Forbidden, Xentrix and Sabbat. These I was looking for - thrash was genre for me. Today I am quite sorry that I didn't record more of these emissions they would make excellent compis. Do ...

Re: Favorite Judas Priest Album?

Painkiller for me. The fact that myself and others here agree that the title track is the worst on the album is a testament to its strength, because really the only thing wrong with it is that it's a bit too long for the amount of repetitive play it received. I also have to confess some nostalgia be...

Re: Closest to '76-'78 Priest you may get???

OK, I don't think anyone will come close to that Dan Jefferies track (wow, I need to track that LP down!)

One of my favorite tracks that I shared on the Compilation Encyclopedia listener's companion Volume 2 has a strong early Priest sound, and that is Shepherd - The Power.

My current hometown is devoid of metal, but Steel Assassin are from Brockton, MA which is just 2 towns over.

Re: Humble beginnings

I grew up in the 70s listening to my mom's records which included a vast array of folk and rock, including some heavier bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. It probably wasn't until 1987 that I decided to find my own path (I was 12 or 13 at the time) and I started by listening to whatever Top 40 stati...

This is great news! I've always loved this EP, one of the best in the melodic post-NWOBHM genre.

Re: [WANTED] Sleazer 7inch, Scarlet Bride Demo, Bloody Climax LP etc.

You've got a Sleazer 7"? Damn, this one is indeed ultra ultra rare. I've only ever seen 1 copy yet and it's my own. I immediately bought it when it turned up at ebay some years ago for 30 E buy-now auction. I got mine on eBay a few years ago too. Price was 19.99 E so either it was a BIN or no one e...

Re: Dementia, Bloodbath & Decimator (Ohio)

Hey Tod! I saw Wretch at the Ragnarokkr festival last year and they were fantastic. Maybe there's room at next year's Ragnarokkr for a Decimator reunion. :D
