Re: Nationalistic metal in the 80s?

There are some bands which would sing about glorious or remarkable deeds their nations did in the past but I do not know if that equals nationalist ideas. For example Angel Reaper made a demo song titled "Lord, save us from Hungarians' arrows" in which they referred to Magyar raids which put in awe ...

Re: New Releases Discussion Topic (2016)

Should Black Sword Thunder Attack release their album yet this year I will put my two cents as well.
But I doubt they will.

Re: The very Firsts bands mixing hardcore-punk with metal thrash (crossover)

Maybe Frigid Bich and The Beast (I mean the band known from the allegedly unofficial "Last Beastial Incarnation" LP).

Re: Messiah test pressing 1985 - Unreleased version of Final warning?

They made some of the tracks that landed on "Final Warning" already in the late 70's, and these are included as bonus tracks to the "Going Insane" CD. The very "Going Insane" EP contained two tracks from the LP that were rerecorded and those came off much, much different. And now we have this ultima...

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch (2015)

Some sellers apparently think their potential customers are so stupid that they can't even googlesearch:

That compilation is still available directly from the label:

Re: TANTRUM (US)

What do the other songs sound like (I mean others than the ones off the EP)? Is there any track as good as Knight of Fire? Already own "Trenton City Murders" and don't know if the demo songs make this CD worth buying.

Re: Canadians WIKKA

My favourite song of theirs is "Beware of the King", I really love the chorus. The rest of the EP is good too, while their remaining tracks are sort of hit'n'miss. EDIT: As for the review: has there ever been a bad Metal tune about Egypt? I can't tell, I have never heard Nile and I am not going to.

Re: Pure Fucking Metal Armageddon

Manilla Road missing really hurts me, I don't think they like Mark Shelton's voice! It might have something to do with the fact that MR were still an obscure band in 2001. Or wasn't it? I knew next to nothing about old underground metal back then, but I feel they gained a cult status among younger ...

Re: ARKEYN STEEL RECORDS STRIKES BACK WITH 4 NEW RELEASES FROM OLD FORGOTTEN JEWELS!

Already four years ago I was curious about when that Osiris compilaton would be out so much that now I won't even ask why it took so long, just will buy it. I never heard about the other ones before, but they look interesting too. In fact, all of them sound quite similar, at least when it comes to s...

Re: Metal Merchant

I love this song, it sounds really powerful. And I don't mind these vocals at all.

In one the of the ads I received from the Karthago Records bloke he wrote something about that he was going to reissue other Ninja albums (i.e other than Invincible). Might he know more of this one?

Re: Your Top Wantlist Items

Even though I no longer care about rarities I wouldn't mind getting some items that will probably never be released in any other physical format. For example Waxwing - Appetizer: the band apparently decided to stick to the MP3 files they put on their website several years ago, so it would a nice thi...

Re: Top 10 thrash songs

Whether Executioner's Song" is thrash is up for debate (some songs are rather not, especially that merry "Fast and Loud"), but "Take this Torch" sounds so powerful and aggressive that it deserves a special treatment for me. And I can see I am not the only one who worships that track as several bands...

Re: Best band from your home town/city

I was raised in a town of about 60 thousands people (number still declining..) with no classic metal band that actually made it. Only recently did I discover there was a band called Uklad N , but apparently one song was all that was left from them. With the advent of the 90s a new sound was develope...
