How can you have a top metal list with out Motorhead Ace of Spades 1980
9. Black Sabbath- Mob Rules (Vertigo/Warner Bros.)
"Turn Up the Night"
It's not Metal according to Lemmy. It's in the non-Metal part of the list. See post 22.
And then there's Venom Welcome to Hell 1980
Maybe to Lemmy but it was Metal at the time to the rest of us.
Perhaps you can wait until I get to 1984 to see what I post, or make your own thread.
Oops; sorry about that !
8. Rush (Toronto,ON)- Moving Pictures (Anthem/Mercury) These days many will say Rush was not a Metal band. Much of their music isn't, but this album was pretty heavy, more so than many of the other Metal albums of the year. I'm guessing in 1981 that many Metal listeners were listening to Rush. I decided to include it as a Metal album.
7. Picture ((Hilversum,Neth.)- Heavy Metal Ears (Backdoor Records)
"No No No"
6. Legend (Jersey,CI)- S/T (Workshop Records)
"Song for a Soldier"
5. Ozzy Osbourne (Birmingham,Eng.)- Diary of a Madman (Jet Records)
"Diary of a Madman"
I think MSG is the proper title. That's what I've always called it anyway.
4. Clientelle (Hatfield,Eng.)- Destination Unknown (Banana Records) This is the only album by this band.
In hindsight, I believe the band was still called The Michael Schenker Group and the album was called MSG. On the next album, Assault Attack, the band used both the full name and MSG on the cover.
The first one was kind of like a solo album even though it says "group". There really was no band when they made it. It's just Schenker and Barden and some studio guys. So I think with the second one they were trying to establish the idea of MSG as a band..kind of relaunching it. So it kind of is a second self-titled album...but not exactly.
3. Saracen (Matlock,Eng.)- Heroes, Saints & Fools (Nucleus Records)
"Horsemen of the Apocalypse" The way the keyboards are used is going to sound strange for a Metal band.
2. Mistreater (Cleveland,OH)- Hell’s*Fire (Not on label)
1. Holocaust (Edinburgh,Scot.)- The Nightcomers (Phoenix Record and Filmworks)
"Heavy Metal Mania"
