Megace – Inner War (1999)

My buddy and metal guru Ben was singing the praises of this band and everything he had to say about it was catching my fucking attention. German, technical, thrash, speed, with a killer female vocalist. Fucking sold. Megace is in... Continue Reading →

Liege Lord – Master Control (1988)

Oh sweet 80's American power metal, how I adore thee. Here's fucking Liege Lord, with what I'm now considering a genuine lost classic of the genre and time period. This is the band all these retro/homage 80's speed/power metal bands... Continue Reading →

Holy Terror – Mind Wars (1988)

Thrash, a genre I used to think was a one trick pony, has supplied me with so many surprises and lost masterworks that it makes my fucking head spin. It must have been hard to be a thrash band in... Continue Reading →

Invocator – Excursion Demise (1991)

I’ve been in a bit of a thrash mood the past couple weeks. I’ve been jamming some old classics, filling out some discographies here and there, and finding killer new, well, new to me, thrash classics. Take today’s featured band... Continue Reading →

Tension – Breaking Point (1986)

Oh yes. Obscure 80′s, one album only, American power/speed metal. The sweetest fruit. As mentioned, Tension existed for one sweet album in 1986, during that sweet, wild west time of American power metal where the scene and style was open... Continue Reading →

Destruction – Eternal Devastation (1986)

Of the early German Teutonic bands, Kreator was the first I heard and the first I became obsessed with. It took me a while to go back and look in to the other killer bands from this early to mid... Continue Reading →

Agent Steel – Skeptics Apocalypse (1985)

There are so many hidden metal treasures from the 80′s. It was a prolific time for the genre, with so many styles developing and so many bands creating new sounds and ways of exploring metal. It led to a ton... Continue Reading →

X Japan – Vanishing Vision (1988)

I don’t get over to Japan very often on this blog and I’ve never had a Japanese power/speed/classic metal band on here before. It’s not a country whose metal contributions I’m as familiar with as Europe and America but whenever... Continue Reading →
