Re: Heavy load/glacier/witch cross type reccomendations

Re: Hellenic Steel - An archive of Greek and Cypriot Metal

Maybe I missed something when reading the introduction but will the project include only "classic" metal bands or also more extreme ones? In the latter case there is plenty of work ahead of you indeed.

Somewhat off topic, could anyone tell me what was going on here?

Re: Help Identifying This Song Clip

The vocals definitely have a Midnight vibe to them.
Then again, that's pretty common in the US power metal of old.

Thunderchild - an obscure Queensryche clone from the 90s and a great one!

It sounds sort of like a cross between Crimson Glory (s/t) and Halloween ("Don't Metal With Evil"), somewhat sped up here and there, and it sounds great!
Interestingly enough, these are Englanders.

Re: US only demo bands

Blacklist from Memphis (so not to be confused with the one from Milwaukee, which released "The Sign of 4") allegedly had a four song demo out somewhere in 1987 and here is one of those tracks: [youtube]wmdSXbGz6h4[/youtube] I do not know the other songs from that recording, but if they pro...

Re: Obscure Czech Metal

These are all great reads, many thanks! Don't let us forget though that Toxic Trash were not a Czech band but. Many a Slovak metalhead might get really rozzúrený upon reading that. :)

Re: Cover Art You See Wrong

When I was looking at the Street Child EP cover artwork on the Internet I was convinced it was a typical fantasy art depicting a warrior standing against some medieval background. Only when I bought the re-edition did I realize it was actually a girl holding a rifle and gazing at a city in the dista...

Syberian band Contr Act sounds somewhat similar to Adramelch:

Re: SIGN OF THE HAMMER or HAIL TO ENGLAND

I never liked the title track of SOTH and somehow I never got into "Guyana" either - I really don't know why it sounds so epic to some, it just pales in comparison with "Bridge of Death". So the choice is obvious. A poll would be welcome as some people are just too lazy to expres...
