Metal Compilations

Post#1 » Thu Jan 20, 2011 11:18 am

Don't know if there is already a thread about that.

I would like to know what are your favorites Metal Compilations ?

I don't know that much but here are some that I like :


METAL MASSACRE I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII (feat. too many bands)

RAGING DEATH (feat. R.A.V.A.G.E., Xecutioner, Sadus, etc.)

SPEED KILLS Vol. I, II, III (Full of classics)

MASTERS OF BRUTALITY (feat. Morbid Angel, Death, Dismember, Massacre, Carcass...)

NORDIC METAL - A Tribute To Euronymous (feat. Mayhem, Dissection, Thorns, Marduk, Emperor...)

SCANDINAVIAN METAL ATTACK (famous for Bathory and Oz)

And that's all I think...

Tell me your favs

Bonus debates: Do you think that it is still (today) a good tool to promote bands ? Or it became totally useless ?

The 3 volumes of US Metal compilations, they have some killer songs.
The Moose Molten Metal series are also quite interesting.

Don't forget to read The Corroseums own compilations list with reviews: http://www.thecorroseum.com/comps/index.html

Ebony's Metal Plated is almost well throughout.

Heavy Metal on Pang records is damn charming in it's naivete. Did not like it at all until it started to grow on me...

You can make many great discoveries through comps, here are some of my faves at the moment:

Cleveland Metal (Black Death, Sacred Few, Shok Paris w/ different singer...)

Dutch Steel (Allied Forces, Martyr...)

French Connection (Steel Angel, Dygitals...)

Metal Meltdown 2 & 3 (many, many great unknown bands)

Pacific Metal Project (Myth, XINR)

....and many more.

"Kleeblatt Nr. 22" (1987) might be interesting for some.
Features MCB, PLATTFORM and COBRA - three bands of the former G.D.R.

"Born to metalize" (1984) does also seem to be a good compilation.

It does help having some of my alltime favourites on these. :P

I do think it's still a valid concept. The internet itself is too big to listen to everything so a compilation album is still a good way to promote some bands.

I'm (still) working on my website about extreme metal compilation tapes. I like tape comps better than vinyl comps, but both are even today a great way to still discover bands.

Posting pictures of men in briefs won't add to your believability as a straight (up) man.
