...I have picked out some interesting LP's that are worth a spin on your turntable.
Well, it is my taste, but they are interesting if you are still rocking.... ;-)
...ok, what the hell....
Stepping out of the 70ies and paying a first tribute to the 80ies...
Very influential to the genre
...recordings from the 70ies, 80ies and 90ies. Discovered and pressed for the first time in the 2000s...
A really nice band from the UK (first two outputs and classics for sure)
Yes, a stupid name for a really great NWOBHM band from Scotland
A new definition of Heavy Metal as they have entered the scene...they came from the US and conquered the world...
...and the three different UK versions of the third LP:
Essential band from the US. They are still active. The first LPs are rare & very sought after...for good reasons...
...it is said that there were 500 pressed. Some, like mine, came with an insert (b/w, mainly with songtexts)...
Most essential band for any Punk/Garage outfit
Great band from the NWOBHM. Bruce Dickinson (as Bruce Bruce) on the mic. Later fame with IRON MAIDEN...
...where he replaced great Paul DiAnno, who started a "solo" with
...the drummer from SAMSON also went on "solo" with
..another great UK band...the name is the game...
THE VIETNAM VETERANS
Simply a great French band with a cool connection to the past
Cool NWOBHM outfit not only for their coverart ;-)
...and stepping out of the 80ies into the 90ies... Everything was interesting in the 90ies. Everybody was busy. I was busy collecting things from the past. Many "old" bands were still active and there was a lot of output. And there was the CD...(no, I did not sell any LP for a CD...I bought CD's for backing up a vinyl, or for listening to music I could not afford on vinyl, or for no reason at all...). And vinyl was almost dead, well almost....
I don't know, if I have really interesting material to show, but everything is worth rediscovering and...hey, it is still my site, so...
...still active and yes, above is the deleted version (due to the front cover and the last song)...
...as I said...still activ and damn good...and thank god still heavy on heavy vinyl...
FAITH NO MORE
LIFE OF AGONY
...and here they are, the "New Generation" in a new millennium
of Hard-Psych-, Blues-, Stoner- (Doom-), Electronic- and/or Space- or simply Rock...
...whatever you may call them, it is a new generation in a good old tradition...
...and a lot of devils & witches...strangely...
...found many of them on BANDCAMP.
