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.

Death - Leprosy

Somebody should write a few words about this masterpiece you it may as well be me. When “Leprosy” came out in 1988, Death Metal was in an embryonic state and was trying to differentiate itself from the rest of Metal genres. Beyond a shade of a doubt, the guy who could only be the pioneering persona to clearly define the genre was the mastermind called Chuck Schuldiner. Prompted by the Thrash hype and being inspired by the old Metal riffmeisters, he gave to the world a sonic creation that since then has his own unique stamp. The growling vocals with the clear spelling, the distorted guitars, the disciplined rhythm and the sick lyrics were something that had never been performed in this way.
