ACID- Lucifera, b/w Ghostriders 7″ (Giant Records, Belgium, 1983)

25-Sep-09

«ACID is the name, Heavy Metal is the game.» See how closely related Heavy Metal is to a certain movie starring Gérard Depardieu.

BUFFALO- Battle torn Heroes, c/w Women of the Night 7″ (Heavy Metal Records, UK, 1980)

22-Jul-09

When I recently watched “The Story of ANVIL”, I couldn’t help but ask myself why in some cases, bands just don’t “make it” (when attempting to be commercially succesful). While in the case of Anvil (although the movie sees that differently), it might have something to do with the vocals, the lyrics and the general […]

NASTY SAVAGE- Wage of Mayhem Demo Tape (self-released, USA, 1984)

23-Mar-09

It’s been some time since the last Metal post. NASTY SAVAGE released this demo in 1984 and immediate fame followed with it. Fanzines from all over the pre-internet world reviewed it enthusiastically and so I took my chance and ordered a copy. Nasty Ronnie, who was anything but nasty, sent me the tape along with […]

GIRLSCHOOL- Emergency, b/w Furniture Fire 7″ (Bronze Records, UK, 1980)

17-Feb-09

And here’s the 2nd GIRLSCHOOL 7″. What a great guitarist Kelly was (she died of cancer in 2007)! As you can imagine, my eyes were glued to her when I saw GIRLSCHOOL in 1981 – I guess along with Blondie, Nina Hagen, Joan Jett and that blonde girl in the first FRIDAY THE 13th movie, […]

GIRLSCHOOL- Take it all away, b/w It could be better 7″ (City Records, UK, 1979)

17-Feb-09

GIRLSCHOOL! Boy they were so exciting when you were a teen in 1980. Hard and fast music coming from women. That was so fucking marvelous and I’m not only talking about the erotically contexted phantasies that sprung out of these pictures (girls with long guitars and such, you know). Everything seemed possible, so it seems […]

STYGIAN SHORE- s/t 12″EP (Roadster Records, USA, 1984)

13-Feb-09

One day, I got a package from my penpal Mark W. Shelton of MANILLA ROAD. I opened it up and found this record inside. Man, I loved the cover and I still like it a lot. There’s this ancient tree with the following mystic message carved in: “For those people who live too well and […]

AC/DC- Dog eat Dog, b/w Carry me Home 7″ (Albert Productions, Australia, 1977)

24-Nov-08

Long before Jello Biafra was “too drunk to fuck”, Bon Scott sang about getting carried home by a woman not quite as drunk as himself. She “ain’t no lady but sure got taste in men”. Say no more, say no more. Need more proof that AC/DC used to blow every band everywhere out of the […]

SPEED- Down the Road, b/w Man in the Street 7″ (Speed Records, UK, 1980)

14-Nov-08

Another scorcher from the NWOBHM. Before the glorious days of internet, SPEED were one of the most obscure outfits you could think of, with this 7″ being so incredibly hard to find, not even the singer knew of its existence. And the singer was, as you most likely will know, Bruce Dickinson, formerly highly entertaining […]

CRUDE S.S.- Who’ll survive 7″EP (Uproar Records, Sweden, 198somewhen)

14-Jul-08

Okay, Peter had three posts in a row today and I shall have two. All fuck ups that might appear in here are due to a bottle of fine white Bordeau I just had, so don’t blame me! “Under your influence, wrong goes right!” Peter hates CRUDE S.S. and as funny as it might sound […]

MANOWAR- Defender 12″ (Music for Nations, UK, 1984)

27-Jun-08

My heart beats like a machine gun fired by a spaz: This is the most courageous of posts! It takes a heart of steel and blood of fire to speak out the truth. The first four MANOWAR albums, the first demo and this 12″ are godlike. Immortals (immorals?) of Metal! Yes, this is actually Orson […]
