I can see your point about Don't Metal With Evil. But I totally enjoy their genius blending of Omen and Mötley Crue. You should check out No One Gets Out then, it's their heaviest album. Songs like Crawl to the Altar and the title cut is total US-speed metal blast and the album has a stint of doom too it as well. Miss Eerie's Child and Another Seven Years is fucking heavy, haunting stuff. I'm not sure if this album was ever released on vinyl. I think the only version you can find is the cd-reissue of 2001. But it's a great choice, as it comes with the Vicious Demonstration demo as bonus tracks.DaN wrote:The show at KIT a few years ago was great. Had a blast, but for some reason I never became a total fan of the "Don't Metal With Evil" album. I heard a tad too much American HR mixed into their Metal and very few of the songs stuck in my head. I still have to check out the later stuff, so I'll postpone my final judgement til then.
Check out their page on www.motorcityrock.com . There's 2 full live shows there for download.
Well I think it is not avilable on dvd, and the beta/vhs video must be hard to get certainlyomen of hate wrote:How can I get this live video ?metalmaster wrote:And you cant forget their live video which is pretty good in my opinion (not as great as any Death SS video, though). The video clip for "What a nice place" is kindda funny
Well, to each is his own.Fucking Åmål wrote:I remembered some years ago when i bought Halloween-Don't Metal With Evil on CD,this first CD was like Alice Cooper,Kiss a mix heavy and glam but with no sucess to my mind.I founded them a typical AVERAGE band with no real inspiration.We can't say Halloween was a great band and ignoring thousands of bands like the Godly Blaspheme and Violent Force which i hear these days and had much less advertisement,Such A Shame.
I forgot what you were even talking about to begin with half way through that rant.DeathMetalWeenie wrote:And whether Kick Ass etc. approve of course
Ha!! Probably not...Bob Muldowney hated any band with a high pitched singer. GODS like Mercyful Fate and Attacker and Dark Age got attacked there, non- stop.
I choose Kick Ass Monthly over Kerrang and Metal Forces. Because Metal Forces had that poser Kevin Hellrazor on there staff. Making Kick Ass Monthly the worlds #1 premier heavy metal bible, from August 81- late 1986. Kick ass monthly Ruled because you could call them up and debate them over this and that review, as long as the debate was honest and sincere.
I got that Dont Metal with Evil cassette becasue. I mailed the Megaforce back catalogue, (because I though Metallica and Anthrax was the continuation of NWOBHM)to a NWOBHM heavy metal fan in Michigan, so he send me alot of those 1984 "Don't Metal with Evil" promo's to pass out to my friends at my High School.
My collection never matched Kick Ass monthly album for album, because I had superior purchasing power, (yeah my parents had TONS of disposable income...not only do I have only mint condition in my collection at all times, I also have back up copies of my favorite top 150 albums...plus all those reissues, because I am smart enough to get say Nasty Savage "indulgence", if a copy appears in a second hand record store FOR A "beater copy", until it gets over played and ruined and then find its replacement) and got to indulge in the genres & sub-genres of Punk Rock, Punk Metal (hardcore crossover thrash), Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Thrash Metal, Death Metal, Black Metal, Speed Metal.
So i was always buying albums a couple months or a few months, before the labels could send out advance promo copies, and get to reviewed in Kick Ass monthly.
But yeah if you had a limited income and could not afford to buy every record you wanted "just to check it out", then heavy metal fanzines were totally important. I always have gone to the record store 3 times a week, to get what is essential, to avoid the collectors market, at all cost.
What I liked about Bob Muldowney, is he could tell the difference between hard rock and heavy metal. And based his publication on those facts.
And he concentrated on undiluted & authentic heavy metal. And championed bands in the family tree of the band Venom, while everyone else, thought they were just "another band".
So between the 11 year gap between the first Snakepit Magazine and the last Kick Ass Monthly, I read something called Sounds of Death Metal.
It seem everyone who loves glam music forgets KICK ASS heavy metal and Kick Ass monthly predated that MTV trend by a couple of years. I appreciated this magazine because I had the same vantage point.
