Various – Welcome To The Metal Zone
There are absolute classics from Exciter, Mercyful Fate, Tank, Megadeth, Savatage, Loudness and Exodus. But then there’s lighter metal of Alaska and Earthshaker to deal with, as well as a Jack Starr cut. This is a pretty honest look at the overall indie metal eighties in one compact two record vinyl record deal. Bang your head to these marvellous tracks.

Motorhead-like. Ahhh those were the days, when Rogue Male and Zodiac Mindwarp spewed sleaze punk metal. Listen and love.
That overwhelming surge of power you only get from METAL!!!! Guitarist Floyd D. Rose invented the Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo System in the late 1970s. Q5 is an American hard rock/heavy metal band from Seattle, Washington.
very mosh worthy
if Venom was the evil version of Motörhead, Mercyful Fate was really the evil version of Iron Maiden! this sounds both elegant and wild, melodic and raw! early Mercyful Fate managed to create their own kind of heavy/speed metal that couldn’t be mistaken for any other band and influenced so many bands from heavy to black metal and from thrash to death/doom!
