Q5 – Steel the Light (1984)

Ah, sweet obscure 80′s heavy metal bands. How I love you. However, if you’re a guitar nerd, you may know the name Floyd Rose. I don’t know much about the technical side of guitars but Floyd invented the locking tremolo... Continue Reading →

Warlock – Triumph and Agony (1987)

Let’s get our 80′s metal cheesiness on! Doro, the lead singer of Warlock, and later her solo band, Doro, has been a name and presence I’ve been familiar with for a while now. Her presence is almost that of legendary... Continue Reading →

Satan – Court in the Act (1983)

Satan were a NWOBHM band that existed for two albums in the 80′s (this being their first release) who then just sort of disappeared until their triumphant return in 2013, then followed up on that with their killer 2015 release.... Continue Reading →

Weekly Metal Jams 10/23/2015

October seems to be whipping right by. Take your time, month! Anyway, the weather here took a drastic turn from a bit cooler to downright rain and cold and I couldn’t be happier. Perfect metal listening weather. Speaking of that,... Continue Reading →

Gotham City – The Unknown (1984)

I love finding these early 80′s, obscure metal bands. Metal was at such a unique place at the time, fracturing off into to many styles that would become the standards we all know and love today. In that time there... Continue Reading →

Legend – From the Fjords (1979)

If you’re a fan of metal music (and why wouldn’t you be) you can’t swing a battle axe without hitting a million viking themed or inspired metal bands. Some of these bands are great. Downright classics even and there’s probably... Continue Reading →

Twisted Tower Dire – Crest of the Martyrs (2003)

I love Twisted Tower Dire. Ever since a couple years ago when my buddy and metal guru shared with me their most recent album Make it Dark I was hooked. As it’s been with so many other bands, I so... Continue Reading →

Leather – Shock Waves (1989)

Since I shared Chastain yesterday I thought I might follow up with their singer, Leather Leone’s solo project, because you need more righteous 80′s traditional metal in your life. While this is Leone’s solo project away from Chastain, it still... Continue Reading →

Chastain – Ruler of the Wasteland (1986)

I’m not sure why Chastain isn’t more highly regarded amongst metal fans, especially ones that hold bands like the great Manilla Road in such high regards. If ever there was a band that fit the goal of this blog it’s... Continue Reading →
