Indeed, it was especially off-turning when the movie came out, considering I was 16 or something back then. :roll:

I advocate the killing of all homosexuals, fags and lesbians, hot or not. If I hated fags alone, I'd be some kind of biggot. :)

Killer and Black Shepherd I know but the other three are not familiar to me. But a quick jump to German speed metal.

One very very very powerful speed metal vision that never fades is something I have on VHS. "Bursting Out" by MP. That's not an official video but apparently from some TV program. It's a playback performance and there's tons of chains hanging from the ceiling and apparently someone is swinging them all the time. Drummer bangs the hell out of drums, the guitarist headbangs like there's no tomorrow and joins the chorus fervently. The bass player desperately tries to make it look like he's doing the vocals for real but the swinging chains keep on throving the microphone here and there and his hands are tied playing the bass. His frustration shines through and when the songs is over he tries to violently push the chains aside with his bass which only results him getting even more entangled. At the same time the very mundane and unappreciative audience gives a polight applause. Absolutely precious speed metal footage. Bursting, bursting, bursting out! Bursting, bursting, there's no doubt!

I do like that Black shepherd album. Very chaotic, very agressive. I wouldn't call Sixty nine thrash though, the hardcore influence on their music is too prominent. And X-creta was considered a punkband in the eighties, though I think they are more crossover and certainly not 'pure' punk. Atleast not musically.

Is this the movie where the suicidal red/brown-headed girl ("Agnes"?) meets up with the rocker-like chick, and they end up kissing in some guy's car while trying to hitch a ride?

I only ask because I saw this movie on tv a few weeks ago... It was a Swedish movie, so I assume it's the same thing.

Oh! My three picks are:

BLITZKRIEG - Blitzkrieg or any other early tracks (especially on the live tapes)
SATAN - Trial by Fire
JUDAS PRIEST - Let Us Prey/Call For the Priest

I know metal got speedier, but in my opinion these are the sorts of tunes that really helped entrench what speed metal is. The "Stained Class" album alone burns all the shit that, say, EXCITER did (which hurts me to admit, being Canadian).

Hope no one minds me resurrecting this topic. My feeling towards it has always been it’s somewhere in between old school power metal/traditional metal and thrash always learning in one of those two directions. Early Helloween, late 80’s-mid 90’s Running Wild, Tony Moore era Riot etc more on the power metal/more melodic side of Speed Metal. Where for example bands like Living Death, Exciter, Agent Steel etc lean more on the thrasher side.

Songs:

Accept – Fast as a Shark
Warrant – The Rack
Risk - Russian Nights
"On your knees
Into the night that you'll never remember"
