HEAVEN'S GATE- Living in hysteria (1991)


It's funny how times change and bands get forgotten and neglected. Heaven's Gate belong to the very best of german heavy metal bands, in fact they easily enter the top ten -if not top 5- of their country. Well at least until their first three albums... Nowadays metal fans seem to be too busy either checking out every single new band or every obscure recording from the 80's. And that's how we tend to forget a lot of bands that were absolutely great without having sold millions or on the other hand without being extremely obscure and hard to find. Go get yourself a copy of ''Living in hysteria'' and enjoy heavy metal the way it's supposed to be, loud, proud, fast, furious, bombastic, melodic, romantic and everything else we loved about the 80's (I know it says 1991, but this is as 80's as 80's can get). And until you get your copy...

ENJOY!!!

COO- Rock eyes (1982)


This is a rarity that's not easy to find. Actually it was nowhere to be found but I delayed ripping it so some greek blog got it up first. Anyway here's the rip of my lp copy. Thanks to my friend Vaggelis for ripping it. Coo is exactly the same band as Booby Trap I have already posted. The Coo album was released just a year before ''Women''. Better production but musically more flawed than ''Women'', ''Rock eyes'' isn't actually a real gem throughout, but it has some glorious moments. My favorite is the pomp rock opener The days of mauve and grey. The opener's and closers of every side are nice tracks but inbetween there are some fillers. Let's say half of the stuff is good and half bad. Anyway, I felt like uploading something really rare for once (though my surprise was ruined, lol).

ENJOY!!!
