I'm new here, so even though I did a search, my apologies if this topic has been covered before.
Probably a crime around here
but what I collect are cds (I do not even own a turntable) so I rely on the independent labels to put out the obscurities that I want on cd. Most of these are records that I owned "back in the day" (I'm 42) or things I want to hear that have escaped me.
So what titles would you like to see on a high quality High Vaultage/Monster Records/Shadow Kingdom/Stormspell etc type label?
Shadow Kingdom have the RITUAL/WIDOW cds coming any second so I can finally scratch that one off the list but off the top of my head here are a few I'd LOVE to see:
A WARRIOR - "Anthology" type release. Which WARRIOR? The "For Europe Only" band. I had that mini-lp when it was released and I've always loved this band. I do have the single tracks they did on the Sanctuary/Neat nwobhm cd sets and the "Live In A Dive" cd which I now understand may be a bootleg rip off the old cassette that the band self-released. What I really want is that "For Europe Only" thing on a properly mastered cd.
BLEAK HOUSE - "Anthology". I love this band - and I have only heard a couple of tracks from the "Lions In Winter" ep but I'd love something that compiles everything that can be dug up by these guys.
PICTURE - post "Eternal Dark" catalog. Yeah, I know that most metalheads consider these albums to be real dogs that go from bad to AOR-worse when compared to the Godly likes of "Diamond Dreamer" but I'm a completest (its a disease!) and I want them. I have the first four PICTURE albums on those luxe re-issues from 2001 and now I want the rest. And that includes the one that has Bert from VANDENBERG singing.
VOIE DE FAIT -"Ange Ou Demon". I like this one so much I downloaded it from some site a long rime ago - and I almost NEVER do that (I cannot stand listening to metal on my crappy computer speakers). Fantastic singing and great guitar playing. I'm a huge French Metal buff and I rank this one right up there with the best moments from SORTILEGE, H BOMB, DEMON EYES and BLASPHEME.
SAD IRON - "Total Damnation". I had this on vinyl when I used to have a massive lp collection and reading about it on this site made me remember how much I liked this one. Sure its sort of "amateur hour" but in those days (and today too) I could never get enough of this kind of sloppy but intense Euro-metal that was so much a part of what made that era great. And I'll take "The Anti-Christ" while we are at it.
Ok, so what is on your list?
