FOX - In The Beginning...There Was An End

Image

Sadly, not a trace of Metal on this one either.
Instead we get lengthy prog-rock tracks with a style that's roughly comparible to Flock's 'Dinosaur Swamps' album.
Some good guitar playing, (and nifty flute & horns if you like that sort of thing), but the vocals are weak & the production is iffy.
There seems to be some kind of concept linking the songs, but i've no real clue what it's all about.
The sleeve deserved better.

If i had to guess the records musical style just going by that cover alone i'd have expected some Psych perhaps, but for some reason the thing it makes me think of most are the confectionaries from the original 'Charlie & The Chocolate Factory' film.

It's actually quite decent Heavy Metal, with the typical South American sound.


I guess I'll try to gather a few of these and start the thread then.

Demon & Wizard - Evil Possessor (1982) France

Image

The band name, album title, artwork, year of release & song titles all point to this being a worthwhile listen but that's sadly not the case.
Instead it's some weird combination of folk guitars & droning dark sounding analog synthesizers. When it works it's pretty atmospheric & psychedelic in a very off-kilter fashion, but for the other 85% of the record it's grating amateur hour nonsense.
Be forewarned.

Those misleading song titles in full:

01 Prologue
02 Evil Possessor
03 Medieval Holocaust
04 Trip to Hell
05 Faust Revival
06 Cerbere
07 Shakin' The Gates of Hell
08 Black Witch
09 Mrs Peller
10 Epilogue

Here's 'Black Witch', one of the better songs from the record.

The French pressing of the first Dark Star LP (1981) is very un-metal looking:

How does it sound rumblefist?
I'm intrigued by discogs classification of a 1982 release as Heavy Metal/Nu-Metal. :shock: :lol:
