Lots of great stuff to get through tonight, but not much time to spare, better get on with it then eh?
First up for anyone who's been enjoying the Nitzinger posts, here's a compilation of the great Texan band Bloodrock. John Nitzinger contributed around half the material for the 1st four Bloodrock albums, great songs which he didn't rerecord himself. It's like having a whole new old Nitzinger album, enjoy it, especially you Sergei!


Nextly, a great live album from the criminally overlooked Good Rats, it's superb stuff, the sound of a band at their musical peak recorded in their element, live on July 4th 1979 in New York. Awesome choice of songs too. if you're unfamiliar with their stuff, this is a great place to start. Was a double on vinyl, so the album is split into two rars because of the file size, so remember to grab both.

GOOD RATS - Live At Last (1979) USA

By request, we're now pleased to bring you "Guilty As Charged" by Seattle's mighty Culprit. This was their sole release from 1983, originally on Shrapnel Records. It's incredibly played traditional Heavy Metal, with plenty of flash guitarwork, great rousing choruses and soaring vocals. Good stuff indeed. If this one goes down well i'll up the rarities collection i've got too. If you'd like.

CULPRIT - Guilty As Charged (1983) USA

A further entry in the ongoing Kiss covers collection now, this is a split album by Swedens Das Fark & countrymen Partners In Crime. Nice stuff it is too, some clever arrangements and nice song choices shying away from the typical, including covers of Kiss members solo stuff , demos and pre-Kiss band Wicked Lester.

SPLIT : A Tribute To KISS - PARTNERS IN CRIME & DAS FARK (2006) Sweden

On a punkier note now, here we have the classic 1st EP from Californias TSOL (That's "True Sounds Of Liberty" to you!), and a little cracker it is too! Five terrific tracks of furious Punk Rock from the glory days, including "Abolish Government" & "Superficial Love", both of which were covered by Slayer. If it's good enough for Slayer, it's good enough for me, this EP rules!

TSOL - Tsol EP (1981) USA

Back to Sweden again then, for the final release from Valhalla's own house band, the much missed Heavy Load. This is their "Monsters Of The Night" 7", which finds them in slightly poppier terrain than usual, but don't let that dissuade you from checking it out, it still out-rocks most of todays music with consummate ease.

HEAVY LOAD - Monsters Of The Night 7"(1985) Sweden

To finish tonights rockstravaganza, here's one of the jewels in the NWOBHM crown, the "One Of These Days" 7" from Trespass. This isn't one of the rarest NWOBHM records you'll ever hear, but it is one the finest. Great powerful verses and insistently catchy choruses, in a fair, decent and sane world, this would have been a huge hit. This is a different version of the song from that which appeared on "Metal For Muthas II".


That's all for now folks!!

Thank You very much for all the good music you post on this site. Especially " The Good Rats". This live record filled a gap in my Rat collection. Now the only one missing is "Rat City In Blue", You wouldn't happen to have a copy of that one put away somewhere. If you do, please post it.
Thanx again and keep well.

The Swede.

Hi Swede I'll get that Rats album up for you when i have the time.
Could you possibly return the favour & upload "Birth.." and/or "Great..." for me?
To anonymous, i'm afraid i'm unfamiliar with Hellfield, glad you're finding plenty to enjoy her though.

Hellfield, if I am not mistaken (a crapshoot at best) is a AOR-hard rock band from the late seventies, unsure of the country. I think I may have something by them tucked away, but I am having a computer issue which is preventing my sorry-ass computer from properly reading the info on my discs.

So hopefully I can help you out soon!
