I have Picture's "Eternal Dark" which is some good Dutch metal, but nothing special. Haven't heard Diamond Dreamer yet, really recommendable?

Picture are decent, but not even close for being a top dutch band imo. They sound pretty dated and simple for my ears. The howling of "Hail Satan" alone on Future Tense's Sword of Vengeance desecrates easily every album they made.

Dated? Heavy Metal Ears is one of the most metal albums of 1981.

Worshipping Satan's Host and talking shit about Picture I don't trust your taste any longer.

I don't remember asking you to do it.

The only PICTURE album I ever got into was that Darkness-something.. I think I have a copy of "Diamond Dreamer" laying around somewhere.. OK, I'll give it another shot tonight.
...and today I think I have to conclude that this album is just one step too far over the "dated HR"-edge for my tastes.

It's funny how much of a gray area this is. For instance: I've been listening a lot to stuff like MORE, early RIOT and various old Swedish Hard Rock lately and the details that make this or that band sound metallic are VERY subtle. I think I'll write about about it. Tomorrow.

I had 2 or 3 PICUTRE LPs at home. Boring stuff, I didn't keep any of them.

Satan's Host is boring.

ONLY KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I quite like SH & I like the fact the album is a 'uneasy' listen. I tend to find the albums that I enjoy the most are the ones that don't instantly grab me... but I think JP & TF are better (IMO) :D

LOL :D

Why does every thread finally lead to SATANS HOST? Well however, can't say I don't like it, haha.

Guess its really time for a new SH thread, I'll put something up.

This topic has been silent for a long period.
In the past we agreed that the dutch 80's metal scene had its times. We've procuded a number of classic metal records and 7's.
There are few 'very' obscure pieces to be found. Also prices have been dropping I think.
Ive been collecting dutch metal for some time, and im wondering whats out there?

What would you guys say, are the rarest bunch dutch 80's heavy metal records?

12"
avalon - the third move (alternate cover)- (250-340, popsike)
leader - out in the wastedland (100)
mysto dysto - the rules.. (100-150)
lady - the lady killer lp (50)
proud existence - the trial (75)
Future tense - condemned (70) getting more expensive?
defender - city ad mortis (70)
vault - no more escape (70)
emerald - down town (green and red version) (40)
hammerhawk - breaks loose (60)

7":
random - knocking on doors (not sure if it exists?)
vault -hell of a block (80)
griffith - losing control (50)
various - metal power I/IV (II seems rarest) (40)
highway - times/speedin home (70)
sword - excalibur (50)
spoiler - kick down the wall (40)
final heiress - you're in my heart (40)
nataraj - the prophecy (40)
frankenstein - back from the grave (50)

I know quite well the 80's dutch scene and for me in Europe after the british and the swedish, dutch metal is the best.
Then they surrended completely to Death Metal.

To conclude - Holland comes forward to French, Spanish, Italian or even German Metal.

And most of their best stuff was only released on tape and now reissued on CD :

Always thought Picture were fucking class. Diamond Dreamer is great I really enjoy the speedier numbers but the slower more mid paced jams are chill too. "The Hangman" and "You're All Alone" are stone cold fuckin classics.
