Oh yeah, I've heard about Running Wild, Helloween and Accept too.

This thread is in Metal Conquest because it's all about Heavy Metal Hunting, by the way.

The second Ghandi also have some nice songs, although most are boring rock.
Plattform were from DDR, and if you want more from that scene, check out Formel 1.

Brainstorm, the band that released the MLP Overkill, some nice tracks on that.
Centaur first album Mob Rules The World.
Chroming Rose, the first 2 albums. The others are nice but less old school and as far as I know only released on CD.
Deceiver - Tales Of Time.
Destillery's albums are also good if you don't mind CDs.
Grave Digger obviously.
Mass, yes, I actually like them somewhat.

I've heard most of the ones mentioned above, but there were a few that were new to me. I'll check 'em out - thanks!

Are there any other singles to look for besides the Stargazer?

Check the Poseidon MLP if you like the first Necronomicon. Personally I think it is garbage, but there seems to be a 50/50 chance one will like it :lol:

I like the first Backwater LP, very inspired by Motörhead & the first two Venom.

I have that Black Diamond 12" for sale...

Totally agree! Thank you for mention! I love this band! Actually it's not Heavy Metal in it's purest form more likely Speed/Power. So bad both albums were released only on LP format and very strange that many crappy bands were re-released their boring stuff many times on CD format, but jewels like Mephisto, Innocence, MP, Ninja or first Ghandi still not released since ancient times.
