AWESOME! I love that album. It might be my favorite Italian metal album. I have a cheap CD that Unisound put out (probably unauthorized) and I've been hoping to find a better version someday. Which label is re-releasing it?

The only official reissue on cd was on Warlord Records in 1999,at the moment it is not sure who will do the new reissue,they have two offers(one by Jolly Roger Records and one by Underground Symphony)and they are just thinking about;by the way the band has just finished the preproduction for their third album(you can listen a rough medley of some tracks on, i listened two new tracks that Adramelch played live in some gigs(Tides of My Soul and We March,We Fail)these tracks are masterpieces :!: (IMO :wink: ),i hope so for all the others!

Unfortunately the new adramelch tracks are very prog rock/art rock.but that makes sense.most of broken history was written by gianluca in 1988.

More good news! Like Irae Melanox, I was hoping for a good reissue so I could get rid of my crappy Unisound version.

This thread is really cool, keep it up.

-DEATH SS: The story of Death SS Part 2 (on Cursed Coven, previously appeared for some italian Paul Chain Fanclub)
-DEATH SS: The Complete Black Mass Show 1990 (on Cursed Coven)

Plus, continuing the list of "silve factory/original" CD, I would like to add:

-RUGGERI PROJECT (on LM Records): nice guitar-oriented metal stuff. With members of Moon Of Steel if I'm not wrong...or some other metal bands
-ALBERTO SIMONINI: Moon twice (on LM Records) recorded in 1989

-MONUMENTUM: Musaeum hermeticum (their Demo 1989 on Necropolis Records)
-MOON OF STEEL: Passions (there is an official - ? - german edition and another one, unofficial, with a squallid cover)

Plus others...but this is what I can recall now.
Noisenormale65 may be more specific and detailed....I realized only now that he's following an alphabetic order, so I guess I ruined the surprise-effect! :oops:

22)Evelyn --- Same(1996,Plaschke records,only on cd),one of the rarest italian item for this aor/class band(a must if you like melodic rock),founded in 1982,they recorded their only album after 14 years!

23)Feline Melinda --- Living in Europe(1995,minicd on Face records)+Feline Melinda(2004,self produced)+Morning Dew(2008,Mygraveyard productions);by the end of 2010 a reissue of their first minilp "The felines Awaits You"(1988)should be reissued with bonus tks by Mygraveyard prod.

24)Fil di Ferro --- RockRockRock(Axix records 1992 on lp and cd)+It Will Be Passion(2004,Licantropus records);The band has more 'times announced and then postponed the reissues of their two albums of the 80'(Hurricanes,1986 and Fil di ferro,1988).

26)Firehouse -- Labyrinth(1994,cd only on Arexong records),Heart of Steel records announced for 2010 the reissue with bonus tks(i don't know if the bonus will be taken from their first lp,1988,or unreleased tracks from demos).

I'm happy to be useful!

29)Furious Barking --- Theory of diversity(1992,but never published at that time,it's their second work,issued on cd in 2008 by Punishment18 records)if you like old thrash/death metal.

30)Gunfire --- Thunder of War(2004,on Battle Cry records,new stuff and as bonus their 4tks 1984 minilp).

31)H.Kristal --- Empty(1997,Underground Symphony),one of the italian prime mover(they recorded several demos and a mini lp in 1992 entitled "1981" as the year they founded the band) -- the mini lp is in the vein of old Fates Warning/Queensryche,the cd is a little bit more progressive and both are among my favorites.

32)Hallowed --- Same(1986,reissued in 2006 by Steelheart records,now Heart of Steel records) --- the cd contains 3 demo tks and the video of a song(Cry No More)as bonus;note that on LP is quite expensive,and that also exists a quite impossible to find version with a different cover,infact in 1986 they played live for Unicef in Bergamo(their hometown)and a special issue was made,with a completely white cover and the titled "Hallowed for Unicef",this version was sold on 1986 Christmas day only during that gig.

33)Headcrasher --- Introspection(1991,on lp and cd by Dracma metal records),it was the second full length for this thrash metal band.

34)Heaven's Touch ---the best 1988/1995(2009,Forkate records)in the vein of Poison/Motley Crue in their early times,then in the wake of Europe,Bad Habit,one of the most underrated italian bands,this cd contains several professional demos(they never released something official at that time) -- only 500 hand numbered copies made.

35)Hocculta --- Warning Games(1984,Discotto metal,reissued in 2005 by A&R prod/Markuee records,no bonus tks)+Taste the Return(2006,on Dedalo Sound,mini cd with only two original tks and the Scorpions's cover of Blackout)+Back in The Dark(1989,originally on Metal Master,reissued in 2009 by Metal Master/Markuee Records, only in digipack,no bonus tks)

36)Ifix Tcen Tcen -- Liquid Party(1990, on TVOR on Vinyl/Circus),thrashcore/punk in the vein of S.O.D. GANG GREEN it contains several disco music covers,jingle covers and so on,truly irriverent!

37)IN.SI.DIA. ---Istinto e rabbia(1993,on Polydor records)+Guarda dentro te(1996,Polydor records),formed in the 80's as Inviolacy,one of the best thrash metal acts from Italy,both quite difficult to find,you can download for free their records and demo at through authorization given by the band

38)Lord Crucifier --- The focus of life(1988,Lp and Cd on Metalworks),strange story for this trio,founded in 1983 as Haze,bass player and drummer moved from Italy to England in 1985 and recruited on lead guitar Cozy Spike (aka Adam Lehan,then with Acid Reign in 1989/1990 and with Lee Dorrian's Cathedral from 1990/1994),a mixture of thrash/death metal.

39)Love Machine --- Hungry For your Love(1992,on Wheel on Steel records,only on lp) --- this was their second full length album,Heart of Steel records will reissue it by the end of 2010,for melodic/class metal lovers.

40)Maskim --- Same(1991,Carrefours records only on lp,reissued in 1992 only on cd by Zasko Lab);another strange italian story for this roman based thrash metal band(founded in 1986),they signed a deal with Carrefours,a belgian label and published the lp for them(note that all the copies are in clear crystal vinyl and contain a poster of the band);one year later italian label Zasko Lab. reissued it on cd only with 3 bonus tks.

41)Maxx Dolls --- Same(1992,Magic Bus records mini cd only);founded in Brescia in 1988,in 1991 they won the Yamaha world contest playing live at the mythical Budokan in Tokyo,if you like Hanoi Rocks,Motley Crue etc.(a very hard to find cd nowadays).

42)Megatherion --- BSM(2009,on ROAL sound international)thrash metal band from Bologna,they recorded(but never released) an EP and some demos and after the split up(1988) two members of the band joined Extrema;some months ago finally the former members published this cd,it contains six original tks,a live tks and a new song.
