Judas Priest – Reflections: 50 Heavy Metal Years of Music (2021)

Black Sabbath invented heavy metal, but Judas Priest drove it forward, rapidly accelerating the genre’s development. The limited-edition 50 Heavy Metal Years of Music isn’t their first rodeo at the box-set ranch, but in comparison with 2004’s 4-disc Metalogy and The Complete Albums’ (2012) vanilla round-up and omission of the Ripper Owens period, this 42-CD behemoth hits the motherlode.

VARDIS Announce A New Double Live Album!

Vardis, the British NWoBHM legends announce a new double live album with "GUARANTEED NO OVERDUBS" In the 1970s Vardis' relentless touring of the working men's clubs of Northern England took them to support slots with Hawkwind, Slade, Motörhead and Saxon, emerging with a reputation for a unique heavy rock attack and high energy technical brilliance. On November 1st 1980 Vardis' live debut LP 100 M.P.H. entered UK Album Charts at #52 and instantly became a foundational record of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The power trio's fusion of fast punk rhythms, relentless heavy riffs and blistering blues rock solos echoes through Metallica's 1983 Kill 'Em All and Megadeth's 1985 Killing Is My Business ... and Business Is Good!, and became an old school Heavy Metal classic.

Excalibur – The Bitter End (Review)

Excalibur - The Bitter End Is A Hidden Gem For Fans Of The NWOBHM. Label: No Remorse Records (Greece) Release Date: (Original 1985) Re-Released September 2021. Originally released in 1985, when the band members were still teenagers, the U.K. band Excalibur has re-released their debut complete with previously unreleased mixes and demo tracks. It’s someone startling to think that Excalibur didn’t become of the big names of the U.K. metal scene of that time frame. This outstanding album rates up there with other underrated classic bands like Tokyo Blade, Tobruk, Bronz, and Jaguar. If you missed out on these guys the first time around, nows your chance to enjoy a great album that has flown under the radar for far too long. The CD features a full-color 20-page booklet containing lyrics, liner notes, memorabilia, and never-before-seen photographs. Admittedly the cover does seem dated and a bit cheesy by today’s standards, but never judge a book by its cover, because it’s all about the music inside and that music is really quite good. Stand-out tracks for me are “Haunted By The Shadows”, “Come On And Rock”, and the title track “The Bitter End”. But honestly, there isn’t a bad song on here and it’s really interesting to hear the progression of the songs through the demos, the original mix, and finally the remastered versions. Excalibur’s “The Bitter End” is a hidden gem that fans of the NWOBHM should absolutely love.

Black Sites – Untrue Review

The word ‘black’ in a Metal always creates the expectation that the album will be of its most cruel and heavy dimension. We are alwyas prone to understand that the album will have at least some aspects of Metal’s most extreme dimension and facete. It’s natural, then, That the fan expects it will at least a Blackened Death Metal album or Black Metal itself. There is no way of denying the power that those dimensions have around Metal music. However, words are tricky and sometimes they don’t exactly mean what it is expected. That’s the case here where Black Sites “Untrue” reveal nothing or at least very little of the most extreme sounds of Metal music. Of course, that doesn’t take any value out from the band. It is only an expectation broken. Just that.

On our radar: Unto Others

Previously playing under the name Idle Hands and recording their 2019 debut Mana, the Portland band are now signed to Roadrunner for its appropriately-titled follow-up Strength. And a sound that sets them apart in heavy rock and metal right now.
