The Rock for Peace Compilation isn't that good. Not even the Axat track can convince, they do definately not sound like on the LP. But there's a rip up on the net, you better listen first unless it costs just 5 E. It's for die-hard Eastern Europe fans/complettists only imo. The Era/Concurrent Split LP is still the most recommended vinyl from Bulgaria besides Axat and Iceberg. Even second Impulse LP contains only 60 % fillers besides the 3 famous Metal smashers.

That Milena/Era Split should be of biggest interest as Era ... never seen that LP before ...
Thanks for info Prowler. I won't buy the MILENA lps because they cost too much. I don't like FAKTOR so won't buy them either.

Most probably, gonna get the V.A. lps + ER MALAK lp

I have AHAT (the best band I've heard from Bulgaria) and ERA/CONCURRENT split yet. Never heard the first ICEBERG, a real fucker to find ... what about their second album Heretic ? worth to get ?

For 1994 it contains pretty listenable Metal and doesn't have that crazy sound like the debut! I've only the numbered tape version, should be on CD available too. But I've seen a rip up on the net too on any forum.

If possible could you ask the seller which year that Milena/Era Split LP was released? It makes me mad. I thought I had all bulgarian Metal vinyls and now you came up with this one! :cry:

I think it's from 1990 or 1991. Even not sure if it's 100% Metal

He sells his copy for 50€ which is excessive in my opinion.

EPIZOD only "disown" their second album 1993 "Murtvetz Sred Murtavzi" and it is because it was produced by guitar players Miro and Drago - neither of which is part of the band any more. The rest of their catalog is owned by Simeon (current bass player and RTM Records owner).

Ironically MSM is Epizod's best album imo - very heavy and doomy, somewhere between early Candlemass and Dark Quarterer.

-----

The split LP is not Milena /ERA, but Milena/Review and is punk/new wave, part of the BG-ROCK series (AHAT, Control/New Generation, Era/Concurent). Doesnt cost 50 Eur either: http://www.discogs.com/Milena-Review-BG ... se/2160924

-----

Milena - Ha-Ha LP is metal and is quite rare. Should be in the same raritat vicinity of Er Malak as only 500 are said to be pressed of each. For comparison AHAT was pressed in 4,000 copies.

This is essentially the debut album from 1990 (minus one song "Nishtoto"), re-recorded with ERA as back-up group (original album was recorded with Orion, but then in late 90/early 91 Orion and Milena went on European tour, including a San Remo festival date, and while in Germany Orion decided to defect - so the guys took off quietly and left Milena stranded in some motel... so when she got back to Bulgaria she re-recorded the album with ERA)

-----

Comatose after "Ex-dead" replaced their vocalist with Ico Angov (previously in BTR) and recorded two songs, one was power-ballad and had a clip which rotated on Bulgarian TV around 1993 or so.

I'd have loved to release Ex-dead on CD, but the master tapes seems to be lost. I'd also love to release BTR's debut album, but things are complicated there.

-----

ROKADA is generic hard rock, FSB is commercial art-rock, neither would be of real interest to heavy metal fans.

So, what about this band ACCENT, featured on this 1990 comp on Balkanton: http://thecorroseum.org/comps/21styouthpopsongc.html ?
I haven't been able to find out any info whatsoever about this band, so maybe someone watching this thread knows more? Iordan?
(song is available here)

Edit: the credit "Kalin Donkov" on the back sleeve proved a dead end. Apparently it's a Bulgarian writer/poet from whom I figure they've borrowed their lyrics (?)

http://bg-rock-archives.com/members.php?band_id=97 according to this info, they used to have some members of Impulse, Er Malak, Epizod. Also I saw an interview with their guitarist Svetoslav Kolev on Youtube and he said that he was the main guitarist who recorded most of the guitar parts for Impulse Gladiator lp at home of Iliq Kuntchev, but he is not credited on lp. And that the drum machine was programmed by Orlin Radinski / Er Malak/. They have a song feat on this tape too:

A late thanx for the Accent-info. That BG Rock Archives site was very interesting too - will add it to The Corroseum link page for the next update. Do you have that comp tape? Care to share i?

Yeah ACCENT were quite good melodic power metal. It was basically the IMPULSE line-up from 1987 (minus Ilia Kunchev of course) with Nasko Stefanov on vocals.

There are quite a few songs known in existence recorded between 1989-1990, although I don't think they ever had an official release. The band didn't last long anyway as Lynch moved on to ER MALAK in 1991

Below are several songs:
