Disorder (USA) – Demo (1989)

Band: Disorder (USA) Release: Demo 1989 Genre: Power/Progressive/Thrash Metal Country: United States Year: 1989 Label: Self-Released Note Disorder‘s first and only full-fledged release perfectly showcases the band’s obsession with sounding as aggressive yet demonically melodic as possible.  Think Crimson Glory and Solar Eagle with a dash of Fatal Violence to bring out the slight thrash factor.

Moon of Steel (Ita) – Passions (1989)

Band: Moon of Steel Release: Passions (Full-Length) Genre: Power/Progressive Metal Country: Italy Year: 1989 Label: Cult ‘N’ Roses Note One thing I’ve learned from the 80s Italian heavy metal scene is their unconventional combination of melody and mysticism, and no other band does it better than the mighty Moon of Steel.  Following in the footsteps of similar native acts such as Flight Charm, Dark Lord and Crying Steel, Moon of Steel‘s unique charm revolves around the progressive nature of heavy metal, making “Passions” one of the most refreshing Italian albums of all time.
