Accept – Blind Rage (2014)

Band: Accept Release: Blind Rage (Full-Length) Genre: Traditional Heavy Metal Country: Germany Year: 2014 Label: Nuclear Blast Review “‘Blind Rage’ reminds us why heavy metal is the greatest music in the world” With an uproarious musical legacy spanning over 35 years, it is impossible to speak about the history of heavy metal without mentioning the one and only Accept; one of the genre’s most respected and consistent bands.  From “Restless and Wild” to “Balls to the Wall” to “Objection Overruled”, Accept‘s most successful albums were all beautifully engrossed by the same elements that make up their unique playing style.  Take...

Sortilège – Larmes de Héros (1986)

Band: Sortilège Release: Larmes de Héros (Full-Length) Genre: Heavy Metal Country: France Year: 1986 Label: Rocks Buy from: eBay Note My all-time favorite french record; this is as good as it will ever get!  It is almost insane to even begin to think how Sortilege was capable of producing such memorable tracks like the melodic chorus-oriented “Mourir Pour Une Princesse” or the epic ballad “Quand un Aveugle Rêve”.

Grim Reaper – For Demonstration Only Demo (1983)

Band: Grim Reaper Release: For Demonstration Only (Demo) Genre: Traditional Heavy Metal Country: United States Year: 1983 Label: Independent Project Records Note Half of these tracks would later be found on Grim Reaper‘s debut album “See You in Hell”.  Frankly, I was never really a fan of the production quality on that record; it all seemed too stale.  Thankfully, this demo does those very songs (and then some) the justice it deserves.  The definitive version of “See You in Hell” is right here folks!
