"In a world of streaming media, even downloadable CDRs are true"

smart famous person

With the amount of original material amassed during the many years of working with this encyclopedia, the opportunity to compile this music in a more 'completist' manner has arizen. Thus, the "Veterans Of The Various-Wars"-series is born! These compilations-compilations won't have quite the same Best-Of.. approach as the previous series, but will instead strive to unearth the most obscure Steels there are, namely those that only appeared on obscure mixed compilations produced by local music organizations, radio stations and/or d.i.y. labels. These volumes will have a country-by-country theme for as long as it's possible, and some overlapping of tunes from the previous series are bound to happen for patching-reasons. Also note that practically everything that qualifies as Metal or Heavier Hard Rock will be included, so listener discretion is advised...

Volume 5 out now!

...and don't forget the previous volumes:

Vol. 4: "Knallhård Betongrock!"

Vol. 3: "Old Eclectic Warriors"

Vol. 2: "Not Just Spaghetti And Minotauro!"

(click to download)

Vol. 1: "Teutonic Evasion"

(yeah, you still click to download)

...and the original series of comp-comps are of course still available for download. Check 'em:
