Motorhead - MotorheadIf somebody asked me to name the absolute Heavy Metal record, the one that really defines the whole genre, the one that stands out as a cornerstone not necessarily because musically it is the best one, then my answer would simply be the first MOTÖRHEAD LP. For me this record is everything that Heavy Metal represents; it is loud, fast, rude, sexy and sexist, genuine, angry, agressive, emotional, passionate and soulful! It’s an album that connects two apparently different worlds, but really made of the same essence and substance. The Heavy Rock and proto-Metal era of late 60s and 70s and the Heavy Metal of 80s and onwards - the Metal that really sounds the way we know it up until today.

Black Sabbath - Heaven And Hell

The selection to present this genuine monument may face some raised brows out there from metalheads who are scratching their heads why didn’t I choose one of the four/five golden and Ozzy-fronted BLACK SABBATH albums. Well, you can call me a blasphemer or someone who is ignorant of Metal history, but I happen to consider “Heaven And Hell” as the most complete BLACK SABBATH albums from every aspect.

Slayer - Hell Awaits

There was a time – long ago or not – that Thrash ruled the world. Be it the British standards set by VENOM, the explicit musical burst of tons of bands from the Bay Area, San Francisco region (METALLICA, EXODUS etc) or the German assaults by the holy triangle of SODOM, DESTRUCTION and KREATOR, these extreme (back then) sub-genre served the hunger of countless Metal fans who wanted something more aggressive, blasphemous and nonconforming. Keep in mind that we’re talking about the early days (1981 - 1985) with the genesis of Thrash and the initial spawn thrown for this ugly baby to rise and eat the globe in the years that followed. And somewhere over there we were introduced to SLAYER

Savage - Loose 'n' Lethal

SAVAGE were formed in Mansfield, England in the mid-70s but did not come to release any stuff until 1983, a year when “Loose ‘n’ Lethal” was unleashed via ‘cult’ NWOBHM label Ebony Records. I could easily say this is the best release by this label but then we would miss some more important facts regarding this old band whose status is still active to this day, with a brand new album called “Sons Of Malice” that’s probably a nice companion to every fan of classic British Metal. But let’s go back to the early 80s…
