Protector – Urm the Mad (1989)

When I loaded this up in the iTunes seeing that it was barely over 30 minutes, I was expecting some awesome German 80's thrash, and thrash I got. What I wasn't expecting was how much death metal and death/doom was... Continue Reading →

Mercy – King Doom (1989)

Messiah Marcolin. Surely that conjures up thoughts of Candlemass and the legendary music he and that band made together. Well, Mercy was his band before he set off to make doom magic with Candlemass. Also, he's not on this album.... Continue Reading →

Black Sabbath – Headless Cross (1989)
