Canadian Sampler on major label,with one metal band NITEVIGIL ( MP3s on youtube ). There's lot's of series of "Vancouver Seeds" so maybe other samplers also have something to offer.

Another unknown Maple leaf compilation . 100 percent metal DISCIPLES OF POWER - Agressor ( exclusive song me thinks) , but some other monickers like EUTHANASIA or EDEN'S END with song Heaven and Hell sounds quite promising.

This one contains just one hard rock band called METAGENESIS ( They had one LP out back in 1983 I think) . Kinda weak RUSH followers with some recycled riffs.

The first 2 volumes of Vancouver Seeds feature songs by Kick Axe & Headpins (Vol 2) and Hard Rockers Karrol Bros. & Sparkling Apple (Vol 1). No idea if any of these versions are exclusive though both the Sparkling Apple tracks appear on their 'Hard Core Apple' anthology CD.
On that 'ShareChez '83' LP is the Bombay track any good? I ask because their guitarist (Derek O'Neil) played with a few interesting bands (Fury/Marshall Fury/Blazer Blazer/Ken Hensley's Shotgun) whilst he was living in the UK in the late '70s & he wrote or co-wrote that song 'Juanita' which Iron Maiden recorded as a B-Side. Fury/BB of course featured a pre-Maiden Nicko McBrain for a brief time, and like Nicko, O'Neil also had a stint playing with Pat Travers too. With those connections i'd held out hope that Bombay might be interesting. I'd also thought Hooker & Streetboy might have had something to offer just from their band names, but in the latter's case i've since downgraded my expectations after it occured the me that they might have been influenced by Streetheart & Loverboy. They couldn't be that obvious, could they?
I have a rip of the Metagenesis Mini LP somewhere which i remember as being pretty professional if unremarkable Hard Rock, Yeah, Rush seems a fair comparison with the bass being similarly prominent on both band's sounds. The cover art on that Mini is pretty great though, very 'of-it's-time :shock: ':
