I don't know how much you are into 80's underground metal obscurities Brian, but I have been finding a lot of still sealed full length albums on the great labels like Combat, Metal Blade, Megaforce,(early)Roadrunner/Roadracer and a couple of New Renaissance label titles! All cool U.S. stuff still sealed on ebay. Anyway, if you are ever interested, I can recommend some bands you can check out on you tube, just in case you would like to broaden your 80's metal scope a little bit more. There is a lot of excellent metal out there to be found, but like most things Brian, some of the coolest stuff you will often hear is on indies or private pressings, and not major labels, although there is some choice stuff too from that era as well on majors, like Wrathchild America for example. Anyway thanks and good looking out! Again, the day you would like to broaden your horizons and would like to seek out more classic 80's metal vinyl, let me know. There is a lot more good shit than you can imagine than just your Metallica crap, but you have to be willing to check em' out on your own time too & give em a listen! Also, I would try to grab some of this stuff while they are common enough to find, otherwise there will come a time where they may not be as easily acquirable in the future. Just giving you a heads up to get this underground shit while it is hot, but again, you got to be willing to take the time to search this stuff out, as there might be more things that you like than others, according to your personal preferential tastes! Ye seek, ye shall find more metal!
i know theres a whack of great bands.. i have some Raven,celtic frost..
and some compilations with dragster,holocaust..tygers of pan tang,zebra..loudness
i always loved the album into the nightmare by DEMON those guys were great..
then theres those hair guys like white lion and faster pussycat.. i know some of
the groups on roadrunner and combat..like SOD,mercyful fate,exciter..tons of great
stuff.. i liked Holocaust they sound like Maiden with Dianno.. yesterday i was watching
visions of the beast..and as much as i love dickenson..the 1st 2 maiden lps had the classic
true raw metal heads that will always have a place as the classic maiden line up of Clive burr,
paul dianno,dave murry,adrian smith..that line up is simply metal at its best..just like
metallica with Cliff Burton..and Mustaine..
Yes a very amazing roster of bands there, and I know almost every single one of them because they were part of the NWOBHM scene of the late 70's, and early 80's, and most of them were good or had enough of a cult following to put out a full length album. There is some very rare shit on that compilation for sure.
Anyway Brian, I have just created a post entirely dedicated to heavy metal. I would like to request you join me there, as we can talk about much regarding underground metal from the 80's. Maybe perhaps a little bit of an insider too on the Canadian metal scene as well.
