I was familiar with "street fighter" but this one took me by surprise! Really a tough son of a bitch! Any other hard hitters in this album?
I'd say 'Street Rats and 'Dog eat Dog'

Many awesome additions lately! I think both of these also qualify as songs anticipating where the genre was gonna go in the 80' ( both from -76)

MIGHTY SPHINCTER are great. This one's a great gothic/deathrock song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zj1DsbBAhoY while tunes like "Bag lady" or "New manson family" qualify themself as metal songs. Yes you'll see I mentioned them a bit up. Great band indeed! @nightsblood thanks a lot for your suggest...

That early punks liked? Punk and HM didn't really get along well for the first couple of years! But some bands blending the two: Brats ( the band that would lead up to Mercyful Fate, kind of hard to imagine), the Plastmatics

Would Devil Doll qualify, at least on the first album? Also, I think Arpia fits, at the very least very dark and atmospheric stuff with doom passages. They left metal after the 80's from what I can tell, however. Oh, and Stillborn is definitely goth metal done properly, first album a bit more aggre...

Here's a suggestion from me: http://eu.rymimg.com/lk/f/l/96bef916e95914596397e588f6ee635f/1865045.jpg Thanks a lot! 'much obliged!Also wow on the Black Metal vocal approach it' like a metal infused SWANS or something. Sounds like Post-Metal before that was even remotely a ''thing'' Edit: after list...

I feel like there is some NWOBHM/early US band with a very laid back style and a lot of mood that might fit this thread, but the name totally escapes my mind.

Early mixes of Heavy Metal and Gothic Rock

While my biggest area of interest in music is Heavy Metal (duh!) I do have an affinity for the early Post-punk and goth scene. From around 1979 to 1988. And for a while I've been pondering doing a write up about the concept of Gothic Metal, If it does exist at all? What the trappings of this maybe-g...
