That looks pretty cool, though I'm doubtful of the metal content with songs like "When You Hold Me" and "Galaxy of Love"! It's a shame some idiot added the singles by the other Axis to the band's entry.DaN wrote:...the definition of 'unknown' being not mentioned in Malc's encyclopedia. Who here has recordings/titles/pix/originals of NWOBHM-ep's so bloody rare they don't seem to be mentioned anywhere? Just by chance I came upon a second AXIS (3rd if you count the demo act) at Metal Archives that looks awesome. For some reason the direct link won't work, so you'll have to use the search function. I'm ofcourse referring to the one w/ the red cover. Anyone heard it?
Of the others you listed, only FOUNDED's single is in Popoff's book and I won't bother transcribing it because you can hear samples for yourself at their website. I personally would not consider their single NWOBHM, however, there's a non-single track "HA Division" you can download that definitely fits the genre, and is quite good actually.Popoff wrote:Keyboardy white metal (Christian) band produced by Ian Gillan at his own Kingway studio. B-side is called Nightride. Apparently only 50 pressed. Issued in picture sleeve. Quite hilarious actually, Change pulsating to full-on church organ and the most amusing vocal mumble, before picking up a head of sticky, claustrophobic steam, church organ dreadfully intact. Nightride features more of the same Sunday morning keyboard work, over a poppy ballad that might have been salvaged into something useful at the hands of another band, preferably a new wave one from Manchester. It too has a fast bit, which I suppose is why anybody at all calls this NWOBHM.
HOLOCAUST - an ultra obscure band from the south of England, had only a test pressing 12'', handful of copies in existence. It costs more than $2000 and the only copy I know of was heard by a couple of mega collectors and by Malc only through the phone (!!!) it's described as classic early NWOBHM and the tracks are Slay the Dragon, Lawyer, So Called Civilised Way. Whoever gets me at least mp3's of these, will receive some very, very exclusive and killer stuff in return.DaN wrote: Have you heard the 2nd HOLOCAUST, TEMPEST and the TOBRUK debut? I'm still curious about these.
a book by Malc McMillan (one of top 5 nwobhm collectors) about the NWOBHM, it has about 500 bands who released anything on vinyl, and now he's working (for too long now) on the new edition to include about a 100 new discoveries and hopefully more demo bands.The Knell wrote:Sorry for offtopic, but what's that encyclopedia?

Yeah... I have Popoff's too. Nothing good, really. I don't even know where I have it, haha. It's nothing to buy since Malc's book is maybe 1000 times better.Boris wrote:That's the only guide for NWOBHM we have, not counting Popoff's idiotic crap book.
