The old Spanish scene rules like hell, I really can't get enough of it. Favourite albums from this country:

EXODO: The New Babylon
MURO: Acero Y Sangre and Telon de Acero
SANTA: Reencarnacion
GOLIATH: Same, apart from 2 tracks, which are shite IMO
CROM: Both albums slay
ANGELES DEL INFIERNO: Pacto Con El Diablo and Diabollica

And more...I still need to check out bands like ADN, MAZO, second THOR etc
Long Live The Loud !!!

Quite possibly my least favorite metal scene worldwide. However, you can find a few diamonds among so much crap that had flooded the scene. Here's some of them:

CROM - Steel for an age
ADN - Same
ZEUS - 7''
ANGELES DEL INFIERNO - Diabolicca
SU TA GAR - Jaoitze Basatia
EXODO - The new Babylon

and some others that deserve to be mentioned: SUBTERRANEO, ASPID, SABLE, TIGRES etc

Yeah, fuck 'em! :lol:

How many here have heard the MAZO lp? It seems like this LP is way more rare & unheard than I thought. Probably my fave Spanish Metal record, which may not say that much since Spain is one of my least favourite Metal countries, but anyway, a great piece of speedy "NWOBHM" for fans of JAGUAR, RAVEN, KILLER (BEL) etc..

Yes, I've heard this one.
Very good record, but I don't like the vocals that much.

SANTA's "Reincarnation" is one of the very best records with a female singer ! And this worldwide !!! It atkes you from the very first takes !!!
BANZAI's "Duro y potente" is absolutely great too !
ANGELES DE INFERO are average !
EXODO is very good music, bad sadly has a bad pruduction !
The first AVALANCH-EP is horrible !!! One of the worst ever !
HALLEY is nice !!! Very 80ies, very melodic !
MARVEL are good too, you can find them for cheap mow !
MEDINA AZAHARA are progressive Hard Rock, but extremely good !
