FILL YOUR BOOTS WITH RAWK

Some real goodies from the decade that i've forgot tonight. 1980's Metal, Punk & NWOBHM a go-go!
For starters here's the 1985 album by Chicago Metal Gods Slauter Xstroyes. "Winter Kill" was privately released at the time and was later reissued by the good folks at the much-missed Monster Records. A strange band, their sound is primitive then technical by turns, some times epic, occasionally blunt, and this can all be in the course of a single song! They recorded another album "Free The Beast", which went unreleased at the time, but was later issued by Monster too. If anyone has this album, i'd be much obliged if you could post it. I love this album!

Now a short sharp burst of offensive first wave US Punk Rawk from the awesome Angry Samoans. This LA combo were forced to issue this EP under the pseudonym of "The Queer Pills" after their feud with "Rodney On The ROQ" DJ, Rodney Bigenheimer, began to affect their ability to get played on local radio & get booked by local venues. Later editions came rubber stamped with the Angry Samoans logo in red. Four filthy & furiously un-PC tracks delivered at pace by idiot geniuses. This is unbelievable stuff, punish your ears with it now.

Back over to this side of the channel now, with four of the best 7''s from the NWOBHM era.
As their BBC Session seemed to be a hit with many of you, here is the debut release from Northern Irelands Sweet Savage, the band which gave us Vivian Campbell of Dio & Def Leppard fame. The A-Side is the terrific "Take No Prisoners", the flip features "Killing Time" as covered by Metallica on their early demos & their "Garage Inc" album. Two gleaming gems from the NWOBHM.

White Heat were another one release wonder from those far away denim clad days, although they did boast the pedigree of having an ex-member of JJs Powerhouse in their ranks, so they are better recalled than some of their peers. This is "Soldier Of Fortune". Treat yourself.

Some of you may remember Ore as one of the highlights of the 1982 Reading Festival, in fact i believe they had a song or two on the album which commemorated the event. This was their only other release, their "Your Time Will Come" 7'' from that same year. That was the end of the road for Ore somehow, but they left us this corking single as a memento, and it's stood the test of time too, check out those gutbucket vocals.

An obscure little dizbuster to round out the post now, the sole release from Stormtrooper from waaaay back in 1980. I know nothing about them except that they rock. That's all you need to know.

I'm glad to see that someone remembered the great Slauter Xstroyes. To me, Winter Kill is one of the best metal albums of the 80s and John Stewart one of the best and most theatrical voices in heavy metal. Unfortunately the were far ahead of their time and never met the success they deserved.

Free The Beast is more technical and needs a few listens to appreciate it. Take it as a gift for all the good music you provide us with.

If anyone has the lyrics of Winter Kill please post them.

Elvenking, i agree completely with your comments on Slauter Xstroyes, i can't think of another band who you could say that they sound like. There's the occasional passage which might sound a little Manilla Road or even Watchtower in places, but the way they construct their music is really unique.
I still haven't had the chance to listen to "Free The Beast", but i'll get round to it a little later tonight. My many thanks again to you!
