Re: Metal made by black musicians

If we go by the pictures on MA, you seem to be right. I'm gonna use this as an excuse to give Timeghoul another chance. I couldn't get into them back when there was some hype about the release of the anthology back in the day.

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... Well, when I bumped the thread I mentioned I wasn't interested in being as strict as the original poster as in the time period, only that they'd fit the profile of this website and bu...

Re: Metal made by black musicians

Well, luckily there was no boogie but it just never really picked up. The only real standouts for me were Lightning Man and Losing Out on You. The rest was just passable background music.

Re: Metal made by black musicians

I think that Bloodshot Eyes (UK) fits perfectly here. I had never heard of them. I'm checking them out right now, sounds pretty good, if not all that heavy. I like the melancholic vibe and there's no boogie crap so far, so that alone makes it much more interesting than 90% of obscure "NWOBHM" (thou...

Re: Metal made by black musicians

Bumping this because I've been delving into this stuff lately, so I wanted to see if there were any new recommendations from more savvy people. I know the OP was specific about the 80s, but I'd be interested in any sort of bands and albums that would fit this site's profile, even if they're more mod...

Re: A database of lost inserts - new site feature!

As requested in the Missing Inserts-thread on The Corroseum Forum, a H-BOMB insert has been added to The Missing Inserts-section (courtesy of Khudh!), plus a bunch of my own work: LEGEND (UK), IRONCROSS, NME POSSESSED, TÖRR, CELTIC FROST and DESTRUCTION - the 3 last ones technically being posters(!...

Re: Greek Heavy Metal?

I just wanted to add that Kingdom of the Kings is one the best albums I've discovered in the past few years. You can play it as many times as you want and it never gets old, you just keep changing your favorite track with every few plays, like it happens with all great records.

Re: The Metal Compilopedia

One more thing I found.
In the track by track review here https://thecorroseum.org/comps/streetwise2.html it lists the Morgue track as simply "Tales", when you can see in the back cover scan that the actual title is "Tales of Despair".

Re: The Olde Metal Labels Index – additions & corrections

A little heads up: You typed Holy Moses as "Holy Terror" in the entry for the "Terminal Terror" album, on the WVR page.

Re: Proto-metal song thread

Well, it'd be hard to say but music plays a pretty important part in Uruguay's cultural background, probably only second to football. They also benefitted from a somewhat "milder" dictatorship compared to other countries (not by much though, but more stuff seemed to get through the cracks). Somethi...

Re: Proto-metal song thread

I'm not sure if you're referring to Argentina specificallly or South America in general, (and it also depends on your definition of 'heavy' of course), but i think you're being just a wee bit harsh. compared to the rest of the so called "western" world, we were quite behind as a continent. kids who...

Re: Proto-metal song thread

we were quite late bloomers when it came to heavy stuff down here. In some places you pretty much had to wait until the mid 80s for real Heavy Metal to show up. I'm not sure if you're referring to Argentina specificallly or South America in general, (and it also depends on your definition of 'heavy...

Re: Proto-metal song thread

kHIs0MJEKxc Not as old as most of the (great) stuff that already has been posted, but still counting as Proto Metal, I think. El Reloj from Argentina sounded in 1976 like The Weird Lord Slough Feg would sound 25 years later. Great stuff, if you ask me.... Also not as old or probably "proto" as most...

Well, there's Napalm Death. I think by the time their debut LP came out there were no original members left :lol:
