1985. Hellish Crossfire

is the debut album by band Iron Angel.

Iron Angel was a old school speed metal band from Hamburg, Germany that was active during the mid 1980s and the early 2000s. They started out in 1980 as a school band called “Metal Gods” (a song by Judas Priest) being renamed Iron Angel few years later later inspired by a novel about a spirit hunter. 

pretty much every song has some cool discerning feature to make it memorable in some way.  Very classy, well-executed speed metal with some nice thrash influence. There’s an amazing riffs and solo as well , also the drummer doing great job on this album.Highly recommended.

1985. Seven Churches

 is the debut album by band Possessed. The title of the album refers to the Seven Churches of Asia mentioned in the Book of Revelation. “The Exorcist” begins with producer Randy Burns’ version of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells, arranged and performed as it was in the 1973 horror film of the same name. 

 the album was recorded during the Spring Break of 1985 when Pinole Valley High School juniors Becerra and LaLonde had ample time for studio production. Up until the release of the album, the band had practiced at manager Debbie Abono’s house in Pinole, but had formed in the El Sobrante/San Pablo area, which was the location of Torrao’s and Sus’ garage band.

In November of the same year, the band flew to Montreal, Canada for the WWIII Weekend Festival in support of the Seven Churches release, playing alongside Celtic Frost, Destruction, Voivod and Nasty Savage; the concert was Possessed’s first and largest arena appearance, with nearly 7,000 in attendance.

Seven Churches has been interchangeably described as “connecting the dots between thrash metal and death metal”, being “monumental” in developing the death metal style, and as being the “first death metal album”.

I love ‘Scream Bloody Gore’ by ‘Death’ over this album BUT that doesn’t mean this album isn’t great. It’s a classic and like most people who have heard it, it is highly recommended. Especially since it is not only an innovator, but it HELPED Death metal come into play (it did NOT create it like many say, because this is just Thrash Metal played to a more extreme demeanor.)

Thanks for the follow. I absolutely love your blog.

thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1985. Open the Gates 

is the fourth album by band Manilla Road.  

The album is heavier than earlier material in part due to the departure of drummer Rick Fisher (who nevertheless assisted with the production work) and his replacement by Randy Foxe. The space rock elements of the band’s sound were also superseded by more fantasy themes and a greater epic sensibility. Many of the songs are inspired by the Arthurian legends of Tennyson’s Idylls of the King, others by R.B. Anderson’s original translation of Norse mythology. The song “Astronomica” is based on the work by Marcus Manilius. The cover art is by Eric Larnoy.

band’s greatest strength, and that is Shelton’s talent for making every part of the music, whether its the vocals, riffs or drumming (which also significantly improved here), flow together excellently.

 this is a very strong album, immerse you completely in a magical world of Mark Shelton’s creation. Be it “Astronomica”, “The Ninth Wave”, or “Road of Kings”, you’ll find yourself completely immersed in and captivated by this musical masterpiece.

1985. Only the Strong

 is the fifth album by band Thor.   the album’s performance, as it eventually reached platinum status in Canada and the United Kingdom. 

the album a bit of a disservice, actually, but these particular song stand out as particularly stellar. 

 This album truly is a lost treasure of early Power Metal. Highly recommended for the Metal faithful.

Thor’s stage performances involved antics such as Jon Mikl breathing into hot water bottles until they burst, breaking bricks over his chest and head and bending steel bars and microphone stands.
