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...

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!
