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.

Praying Mantis - Predators In Disguise

When the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal phenomenon burst out it was quite clear that it was something more than a movement, while it definitely held more than one signature sounds up its sleeve. I mean, how close were ANGELWITCH and MORE, VENOM and TYGERS OF PAN TANG, CLOVEN HOOF and DEF LEPPARD? Time did tell and most of the bands disappeared into oblivion while others became huge Metal acts. And some minor examples went their own way into other fields; one such case was PRAYING MANTIS.
