Tank - Blood, Guts and Beer

That Black Ice song by Aragorn is excellent. I definitely need to get my hands on some more NWOBHM demo compilations. Anyone know of any that are readily available?

Don't know if someone has mentioned it already, but SATAN'S EMPIRE-"Soldiers Of War" is an excellent song!"Nemesis" by FULLMOON also is awesome.

There's a dozen or 2 NWOBHM-anthems that have earned the title of Greatest NWOBHM-Anthem Ever. BLACK AXE's "Higway Rider" is one of them. Alan's brand new review makes me wanna revisit the flip "Red Lights" right about now...

The 2 Black Axe songs on the 7'' aren't any other thing than a vinyl re-release of 2 tracks of their Demo recorded on the same year (previously to the 7'')
