The only reason that i have bought that SEASIDE ROCK was because of the Valkyrie track!

If anyone is growing tired of these comp-updates and are hoping for something different I can mention that I've made the first attempt at getting in contact with a band for an interview for the first time in ages. Still only hearing crickets on that part, but here's hoping...

Anyways, here are the last few Swedish compilations w/ Metal content that I'm aware of. If anyone has any tips on missing stuff you know what to do...


Some tasters:


...in case anyone missed out.


Crap.


Funny crap.


Not crap! Quite great, fast melo-Metal.


Great, also. See you soon, guys!

Anyone familiar with this compilation? DaN, Keir, BigFoot ?

https://www.discogs.com/Various-OUR-969 ... se/9931637

Any hard rock / early metal / southern rock bands on it? (except for the Justice McBride Band, which I'm already aware of...)

I did a bit of digging around this one not too long ago, many of the tracks (or at least something by those same artists) are to be found around the web.

Of the bands i've heard...
Alecstar were a Pomp/Hard Rock band who put out a couple of albums.
Mr. Edd : oddball ska/reggae with a new wave edge.
Moss Back Mule Band played Country, as did the The Dust Devil Band.
The Works played mainstream rock with prominent piano.
New York Flyers played Hard Rock, verging sometimes on Metal onstage, but more restrained on vinyl.
Joe Whiting and the Bandit Band were kinda Springsteen like rock
Holmes And Mancini were a folk/soft rock duo.
Todd Hobin Band were AOR.
That leaves 3 acts.
We know that the Justice McBride Band were Southern Rockers & Discogs has Kentucky classified as a 'Southern Rock' band too, with a self-titled 1982 LP to their name.
Who knows what The Netherlands Band sounded like, (a bit flat maybe? :)), but frankly the name isn't very promising.

So for Corroseum purposes, i guess the question is, are you prepared to take a punt on it for the non-LP Justice McBride track, with Kentucky being potentially interesting, and in hope that the Alecstar & New York Flyers songs are up your alley?
If you can find it for the price of an EP, i'd say go for it.
Hope this helps. :wink:

Thanks for your time Kit.

Alecstar sounds fine to my ears, from what I found on Youtube.

About Kentucky (totally forgot about them...), they played decent southern/country rock. Not an exclusive track though, as it can be found on their sole LP from 1982.

Not sure if it's worth it after all, though I really want to hear that non-LP Justice McBride Band song....

No problem my friend, glad to help.
I'd actually looked into this comp initially after you'd put me on to that Justice McBride album.
So, in a way, it was you who indirectly set me off hunting for info on it, and therefore it's serendipity that i should in turn be able to assist you with the info i found in my digging.
Karma or dharma? I'm never entirely sure. :D

Never heard that one, but this reminds me of how the infamous US postage rates are never as irksome as when I find cheap US radio-comps on discogs. There's so many of those I'd love to add to the collection :(

On a different note...

I've also added a new filter: Collectable labels & special selections. With this function you can now generate the following lists:

Azra Records & co. compilations
D&S Records compilations
Ebony/Reaction Records compilations
New Renaissance Records compilations
Pang Records compilations
US & Canadian radio compilations
If I may say so myself I think this page looks a whole lot better and certainly more 'collector-inspiring' than before.
