Motörhead - Overnight Sensation

Looking at the 90s in general everything about Heavy Metal was dead for the major part of the decade but for some reason MOTÖRHEAD always managed to stay actual and fit in regardless the trend. Ok, even they struggled around the time of “March Or Die” was released… But the ones counting them out couldn’t be more wrong. So the skeptics stating MOTÖRHEAD had done their share in the music-world really missed their mark, the vitality in the band’s releases during the 90’s is fantastic straight through the series of records put out; from the fantastic “1916” to one of my absolute favorites “Snake Bite Love”. I remember coming home from the local record store with my copy of “Overnight Sensation” and cranking it up in the stereo and the speakers almost fell off the shelf where I’d put them when “Civil War” kicked off.

Cinderella - Night Songs

When MTV finally came to Northern Sweden in the late 80’s ‘Headbangers Ball’ ruled and I spent countless nights trying to stay awake to get to see some new videos and keep up with what was going on in the world of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. I was never much of a fan of the LA trend and the Hair Metal genre in general. Sure, most of the bands had one or two good songs but there were a few bands standing out and CINDERELLA was one of those.

Spitfire - First Attack

It was not such a long time after “Abigail” when King Diamond decided to deliver another masterpiece titled “Them”; after MERCYFUL FATE had split up the Danish singer seemed to be in a creative orgasm, hence his first five solo albums are considered to cover the first round of a splendid career. Well, King has not issued a disc for the last seven years - we do hope for a release some time in the near future - but as long as there are albums out like “Them” there’s no reason why we shouldn’t re-run back to the glorious days of the 80s and dive into the immaculate horror stories of this phenomenal performer.
