HEAVY 09 Twisted Ace Firebird 7" 1981  
HEAVY 10 Jaguar Back Street Woman 7" 1981  
HEAVY 11 Handsome Beasts Sweeties 7" 1981  
HEAVY 12 Soldier Sheralee 7" 1982 Is it that verse riff? Or the chorus? Or that pounding pace? My bet is, it's the subtle guitar harmony tweak in the second half of the chorus that's the magic that makes everyone love this 7" to death. Yeah, it's the finest single release of the label alright.
HEAVY 13 Shiva Rock Lives On 7" 1982 They've hired a robot to chant the chorus and that's pretty Metal in my book, elsewise they sound a bit like Diamond Head when Diamond Head want's to sound like Led Zeppelin.
  HEAVY 14 Twisted Ace This Fire Inside 7" 1982 Never released.The song "This Fire Inside" later turned up on the "Heavy Metal Heroes vol 2" compilation LP.
HEAVY 15 Buffalo Mean Machine 7" 1982  
HEAVY 16 Shiva Angel Of Mons 7" 1982  
HEAVY 17 Quartz Tell Me Why 7" 1983 Is it fair to use the infamous 'boogie'-stamp when a song is this good and remind me more of Ashbury than Status Quo? Dunno.. I like it, but is this HM? Do we care?

HMPD 1 Eloy Fools / Heartbeat 7" 1983 Silver vinyl. No p/s.
HM INT 2 Bow Wow You're Mine 7" 1983 From the last leg of their semi-heavy BW-period this is actually a great, speedy party-NWOHM number.

HMR LP 13 Witchfinder General Friends Of Hell LP 1983 Available on black and silver vinyl, the latter never released with p/s.

A typical case where the title track is just too good for the rest of the album. I mean, I love WFG, but sometimes I wonder if "Friends Of Hell" (the song) makes the rest of "Friends Of Hell" (the album) seem a little dull.
HMR LP 13 Witchfinder General Friends Of Hell Pic-LP 1983 That being said, FoH tops the debut and places itself on a solid 2nd place in the WFG album discography. It took another 25 years for them to reach their absolute peak with the indestructable "Resurrected".

HM USA 63 Jim Dandy & Black Oak Arkansas The Black Attack Is Back LP 1986 I could say they sound like Thor fronted by Mark Shelton, but then you'd piss your pants faster than I could add "..minus the Metal".

Licensed from Capricorn Records.
HM USA 66 Forever Forever & Ever LP 1986 You kinda wish they'd stuck a little bit more to the Doom of the great opener "Wicked Bitch", but as a whole this is a surprisingly heavy and solid HMUSA release. Very much on the British side of things this is how you'd want all of them to sound. Sometimes 'diversity' feels highly overrated.

HMI LP 88 Geisha Phantasmagoria MLP/
Pic-LP
1987 "Gangland Sector 21" could almost pass as melodic US Metal, but mostly this is mid-league Glam Metal that's only marginally more 'talented' (GM and the T-word in one sentence, eew..) than labelmates Wrathchild. Unfortunately zero similarities to relatives Brats, Motörhead and King Diamond.
