The Priest album Screaming For Vengence had just came out and songs like Electric Eye were just amazing to listen to. The sound of Metal was changing fast. Melissa just came out too.biggrin.gif

I was 20 and life was all about beer, ***** and metal music. This album still sounds great to me. You know I'll be playing it instead of the new Priest.

Ah memories. 'Moose-I remember being in high school when Quiet Riot got big. What people may not realize is how mainstream that music was. Cum on being a top 20 kind of hit. I had forgotten about Slade. I loved/still love those Screaming for Vengeance. Priest, AC/DC and the like were staples before thrash really hit. I started college in 84/85 and found myself in Boston-when I first became aware of this new thing-combining hardcore punk and metal......there was a new band everyone was talking about. I eventually bought Ride the Lightning and I thought it was punk! Seems tame now, but at the time it was a far cry from my Led Zeppelin, Kiss and Van Halen albums. Hair metal soon went down the drain.....thank God!

One of the many nails in the coffin of Hair-Metal.

 

 

I started college in 84/85 too, so Master of Puppets (Out Feb. 21st, 1986) and Reign In Blood (Out Oct. 7th, 1986) both came out in my second year! The memories!:)

 

Hair-Metal was sooo fake resulting in real metal emerging. In many ways Black Metal is a true form of metal as a direct reaction to fake metal in general.

 

 

Ratt in 1986 was so mainstream as well as songs by Kiss and Motley Crue! I kind of like things a little more underground!

I'm right with you brother. It just took me a longer time to arrive at the same conclusion. For me, it was in the late 80's when I could see that metal, alternative rock, punk, prog began to mesh. Soundgarden and tool opened me up to the endless possibilities in heavy music. But, it took me longer time to accept what we now call extreme vox. But, I eventually made the leap. Now I see everything is everything....no boundaries.

I was totally into Hair-Metal, I loved Ratt. Still though I didn't get into extreme growling till later. Maybe 1996 or something? That's the hardest thing for most to get into with Black Metal. I was into the guitar and accepted the vocals till my head could get around em. I think Slayer Reign In Blood is extreme metal?

 

 

 

Implying I'm old...................................

Nah, hair metal was a direct result of...all the leather and party stuff rolled into one. All that stuff was a huge part of hard music back then. Black metal was the yin-yang consequence...all the dark, serious stuff. Taken together, hair metal and black metal make a complete genre

Teased hair and lipstick, or corpse paint and spikes? I'd argue that neither is more or less fake, or even silly, than the other. Besides...when I saw poison way back, the audience was more than 50% girls. Last time I saw cannibal corpse there wasn't a single female....just saying smily_headphones1.gif

Avoid /b/ like the plague, the rest of the boards are like 80% more civil (but avoid /pol/ too)

 

/mu/ is pretty good and /g/ has a headphone thread going at least once a day but there the intelligence is maybe 35% of the thread. The other is "MUH PORTAPROS"

Pretty great (and "for free")!

http://vyrion.bandcamp.com/album/geo

It's a bit like a mix of Gorgoroth and Morbid Angel with some Prog elements, I would say.

Found out Obituary plays tomorrow.
Shame I don't really have a free evening.
