Re: Metal made by black musicians

If I'm not mistaken, his name is Tony / Antonio Holman and he was the drummer of the band. If that's the right guy, then he's still active in another Missouri-based band called DRAG THE DEAD.

TIMEGHOUL were quite good, even if some of the songs tend to meander from time to time.

Re: Metal made by black musicians

Oh yeah, they were founded in the early 1990s, but have a history going back to the 1980s under a different name...

Re: Metal made by black musicians

In case they haven't been mentioned already, the progressive death metal band TIMEGHOUL (Missouri) had a black guy in the ranks iirc.

Re: Greek Heavy Metal?

Regarding FOXES. I'm sure you're aware of it already, but the FOXES-track "I'm Free Now" later re-appeared on the DOUGLAS Baba O'Riley EP. I think it was used in a movie soundtrack as well, but can't remember the name of the movie right now.

Great song!

Re: Bands/albums similar to ADRAMELCH's "Irae Melanox"?

Thanks DaN, those were really spot-on recomendations! This is why I love this site - I'd never ever bump into that SEXIT LP elsewhere and if I did I'd probably pass it by anyway "thanks" to the cover art.

Metal LP/CD/Tapes/Shirts for sale/trade

For sale or trade against Greek metal items of roughly similar value (I'm not THAT strict in that department, but don't want to give stuff away either). Feel free to ask questions, request photos, etc. I have some other items as well (CDs, tapes, vinyl, etc.) that will be added sooner or later. Exam...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

Get all the copies of Power Metal fanzine (in circulation since 1990) and you'll get the who's who of Greek metal (minus the extreme metal bands). Indeed, I am searching land and country for fanzines and this is one of the most important ones. So, if anyone either wants to sell their old copies or ...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

I have considered the idea of doing a website earlier on and have not ruled it out. One idea would be start building a combined database/website, which can (maybe, only maybe) be converted into book-form later on. Would you be the least bit interrested in free webhosting, free designing/development...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

If you accept a good advice, drop the idea with the book and turn it into a website or something. Something that you could update anytime you want. Once a book is printed you can bet your ass you'll come across "some great unknown band" that you you'll bit your ass for you couldn't include in the b...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

This is a great idea, there is a lot to write about. Have you taken a first stab at a discography? When it comes to demo tapes I think this is where there will be the deepest delving. Looking forward to hearing more as it unfolds. I'm currently in the process of building a "complete" discography of...

The guy from Hierophant's descent is also cooking one about the Greek extreme Metal scene, he can probably hints you toward good sources :) Yes! Very much looking forward to reading that one.

Greetings, I collect Greek metal of all styles and formats. vinyl, tapes, cds, shirts, zines, etc. (black, death, heavy, power, doom, etc.) from the 1980s and 1990s. First and foremost out of passion, but also for the sake of writing a book covering the old Hellenic scene. So, if you have anything y...
