Ultimate Headbanger Contest

Post#1 » Sat Jul 04, 2020 3:52 am

Hello everyone.
It started to mess with my nerves the amount of unkown bands i've here.
So, if you like enigmas and you're willing to help

Each week, i will add a new mystery track.

here's then the "Ultimate Headbanger Contest"

The first track was supposed to be on the 1st demo of 1988 of the norwegians LOADER.
But no, there's a mistake here. Or a different Loader band from other country.
WHAT BAND IS THIS ?

Ok, someone whispered on my left ear that it's a track of Disciples Of Power.
1 mystery behind.

now, let's face the 2nd

This next track was supposed to be a track featured on a demo by the US thrashers Morbid Truth.
I don't think that's the case. But what it is then ?

the second one I listened to the other day, no clue...I tried to check the testpressing but today my antivirus software blocks 4shared and I have no idea how to get around that so I can listen to it.

This is the first band of Jeff Young better known a bit later as the solo guitar for Megadeth.

If you know well his first steps with local bands (probably on the Michigan or in the Ohio - and before he moved to Los Angeles)
then, you're ahead of all the pack (including me).

So, what is it afterall ?

I think this came privately from Kiki, old Corroseum member but inactive since some years.

She didn't know what it was. I don't know what it is (but i think i listened this previously somewhere...)

Top of The Art US Metal to haunt you forevermore in search to know what it is...
(this means - i have high hopes that someone here can identify the band, finally)

Don't like to post too much words - i could never do reviews or to type about which were the best moments of KIT like it was a log with how many times did i threw up before it finished.
so, here it is

They were americans and their thing was speed-metal
thanks for trying to help identifying the band

I own that testpressing 7", the B-side track is terrible Boogie stuff, but the A-side is awesome. I remember the info said it should be from 1978. Noone sems to know what band it could be.

I also own a testpressing 7" from Ecuador, that features some Hard Rock/Metal but the stamp on the yellow paper labels is inverted and hard ro read. I think I could indentify the band name Palmenia Pizarro. Do we have anyone from Ecuador here? Because when I started searching for that name, the info just told me that Palmenia Pizarro was rather a chanson artist. :P

This is a french band. It was ripped from a dubbed old tape as a unknown Strattson demo. But it isn't.

Don't know what is neither the titles of the songs.

Probably it's a mistake on the tape of the friend who got me the mp3

Crystal Night - In The Heat Of The Night

I got this from other Corro member
It sounds like a scandinavian band - maybe swedish

Now - despite the nationality does anybody knows in waht year was this recorded ? (80's)

C'mon don't be shy.
Make your guess or tell what similarties you find with other band/demo.
I do think it's very normal that no-one knows exactly what is...

Anyway this should be european i think. very early 80's

another dubbed tape with a demo not labeled-

do you know what is ?
to me - it flirts both the NWOBHM as the US style of the early 80''s -

Maybe you should start searching in british area first. The last track for is sure called "Running with the devil" and the number itself's just screaming NWOBHM all along.
