Re: Greek Heavy Metal?

The old Made In Greece compilation has been added to the Compilopedia. Who's got more info on the old Greek band FOXES? Seems like they should have been one of the first real Heavy Metal bands in the country. Any connections to later bands? More recordings? Here's the 2 FOXES songs from the comp: h...

Re: Veterans of the Various-Wars - Vol. 2 out now!

Another great effort Dan, you rule man! I particularly like the professional -cult- artwork!

As for the compilation itself, I've pointed out Hellbound and of course the two great songs from Steel Grave (GOW) that we already knew from the infamous Argento's movie (a cult classic).

Re: German-compilation-tracks compilation (white label test pressing pre-release)

thankx a ton Dan for your time and effort to bring to light some real obscurities like Brainhammer & Avalon for example which really kicks serious ass! Can't wait for more obscure steel... If you are interested in unknown Russian steel, check my compilations shared on the Metal Rarities forum!

Re: Heavy Sounds Records

if you are talking about the Swedish Record shop/label that released the first Heavy Load record, it was a one record company that carried on as a record shop until a couple of years ago. i actually visited that store in Stockholm once...pretty cool guy the owner too!

I was recently in Sofia, went to SMF records which had nothing obscure or rare as the previous fellow mentioned. Also, "Ploshtad Slaveikov" bazaar had only second hand books. However, I came across an open bazaar next to Alexander Nievsky's cathedral where they were selling WWII medals, Nazi flags, ...

Mighty 'Touch of Devil' performing live in Hammersmith Odeon the song 'Metal Power'!!
For those not familiar with this band, do yourself a favor and get their 1985 demo, probably the best to come out of Italy!

Anyway, my experience when traveling abroad has showed me that you can find good stuff in record fairs (very common in Europe) or second hand record stores that usually trade various styles. You can easily locate the...
