Great article or what you call it! Not much to extend it with! Nothing that I know about anyway...

Most reviews I've read on this site so far were all from that massive article. Very commendable! I obviously don't agree with you on all of them - Victim for example. Lousy record in my book. Also a bit more negative on a few other ones, Gotham City etc. but nothing so major. I do have a bit of a technical criticism though - it would look much better if all covers were next to their review. A table?

I intentionally designed it a bit 'loose' and didn't want to overstructure it, just to make it a bit different from the regular review pages. I put the covers in one big column more for decoration really. Thought it would be easy to connect the dots anyway, so..

Your choice of course. Just thought it'd look better that way.

I can't agree at all with Victim.Their single is very very good straight/down-to-earth metal like and personally it reminds me exactly nothing.

This may sound a little bit weird but I can hear a lot of HANOI ROCKS in the chorus vocal melodies! I always think of "Don't Follow Me" when listening to Sergeant - Doubt

Edit. And Dawnwatcher vocalist reminds me of Duran Duran's singer :lol: but please don't butcher me folks, I have nothing against Dawnwatcher!

6) The Wildness 7'' is excellent IMO. 1st song is more speedy and metallic, but Dreams is also a great melodic melancholic tune and it's still metal. 4/5 for this one.

The Wildness single is very good indeed (you might figure out that I think so by watching my avatar;))

By the way, has anyone heard anything from onyx '83 demo? And in that case, would you recommend it?

There is a couple more platina rec. singles that's not on that list. ARENA 7'' Breaking Loose is a cool HM one.

Great job DaN;
this article is really great; I'm searching a lot of these and some are very difficult. Also I found many of these and some are really great records: Onyx, Zone Zero, NJB, 220 volt, Silver Mountain, Treasure, Sacrifice, Sergeant, Ambush, Spitfire, Faith, Airborne, Shakespeare, warning Scratch and others. Was a difficult search but are great records.
