Welcome to the most important part of THE CORROSEUM - the reviews! Here you'll find my reviews of old, unusual Metal-records I find interesting for any reason. In some ways the chosen titles reflects my personal interest, i.e. 80's underground/indie Metal of all forms, from classic NWOBHM to extreme, early Black/Death/Thrash and plenty in-between, but this is in no way a "favelist". I'll deal with the ultra-über-mega-fuckin-super-duper-top-of-the-crop-monster-RARE! stuff that I still haven't seen anyone writing about on the net, as well as "medium" rare material I feel is being ignored coz they're lost somewhere between "common" and "collectable". This way this page can be informative both to die-hard collectors as well as people who've just started to dig around in the old 80's Metal Underground. Not all titles are in my own collection, but most of them have been at some point. I find it easier to write about a record that I've actually held in my hand and have had a relation to, rather than some anonymous mp3- or wav-file that came in the mail. There's still plenty of titles to choose from in the "archive", so that policy doesn't need changing anytime soon.

If some of these reviews look familiar it's because I originally wrote them for the sadly missed Metal Treasures website. I thought it would be OK to include my past writings on this my very own collector site, and I can't imagine Charly would disagree. Many of the reviews have been revised coz of new added info, old annoying spelling mistakes and other things. Hey, it's allowed. It's an interactive media...
