Start listing! (I'll come back with mine)


Before '85? - That would include all the NWOBHM-stuff! :D

Budgie were mentioned before ... Blue Öyster Cult ... Golden Earring are really great (not too metal though) ... I dunno ... Riot? Gillan? Derringer? Vandenberg? Y&T? Montrose? What do you call "metal" in the 70s actually (apart of course Sabbath, Priest, Motörhead)?
:roll: I meant the releases that come under this catogory released in those years. Such as Ashbury etc

In other words completely unrelated crap.

@ tbieri:
Hell Preachers Inc. looks interesting. Could you give us some more information?

@muskeg:
Great list! But I have to admit that I don't like the Salem Mass album. Besides the first song, everything is utterly boring in my opinion.

I heard that one too. I hardly remember it, but I do remember I wasn't that impressed either.

If your attending something dark and evil, you are wrong !
But it's full of heavy organs and fuzzy guitars. Short and crunchy songs, not too long and too fucked up like some Kraut Bands. It also has a 60ies feel (is from 1969), so not too heavy !

Rumours says that the record is from some Deep Purple musicians, but Purple always denied it ! Some 60/70ies specialists i know are shure that it is Deep Purple, but i don't think it's true, but after all i don't have the slightest idea.

Some of the heavier Amon Düül II stuff is really good as well:

Don't know if you can call it 'proto-metal' but it definitely has a doomy vibe.


@Nightsblood:
In the 'insane ebay auctions' thread you said you didn't know anything about krautrock. Well, old Amon Düül (II) is a good place to start!

Speaking of Amon Duul II. Phallus Dei, Yeti and Tanz Der Lemminge are absolutely killer albums. Overwhelming ... like being engulfed by an invisible monster ...

Amon Düül II are in my top 5 favorite bands without a doubt, but i left them off because if i put them on there'd be a slew of other krautrock i'd have to add to a list that's already too long. haha

There is a ton of stuff I foolishly forgot to add..but everyone else has pretty much added it in. I will however say that the Swedish band November needs to be included.
En Ny Tid Är Här, 2:a November and 6:e November
