Track 1 from now defunct band Solitude playing Alter The Red. Neat speedy hard rock song.

Terrified by Anacrusis. Shown as Progressive Metal, in your ears vocal over clean rocking band. Guitar licks and old style harmonic vocals very nice.

Running For cover by Dimage. Another defunct band playing classic heavy rock song. Clean semi-soaring vocal over subdued rocking band. Nice, sounds dated.

This Unholy War by Forte (acute accent over the e). Great high speed hard rock song with clean vocal over thrash & faster band. Nice.

Up From Beneath by Uncle Slam. Defunct thrash metal band playing tight neat song w/punk roots. Great speed guitar play and vocal, 5 minute song rocks.

Track 6. The Secret by Confessor. Nice Doom metal opening, shrill vocal over same play, nothing fancy.

Down The Drain by Cyclone Temple. Defunct Trash Metal band, wordy vocal, band mostly in the background until their instrumental interlude which rocks, they sound great. Good song.

Don't Talk About Love by Casanova. Sounding very familiar this song rocks as a 90's rock song which it is. Great strong & some screaming vocal over excellent band. Classic hard rock song, love it.

Transmogrified by Solstice. Death Metal track that rocks. Speed play, guttural vocal, busy band & song. Song rules.

Inspired Hatred by Elysium. Melodic Death Metal is the band's tag, this song rocks & slows sounding cutting edge and then jaded in the same song. Thrash metal roots, repeated riffs, soaring guitar, & then more. I love it then I love it less, 6 minutes. Like it.

Dementia By Design from Forte (same e). Brilliant speed metal (or Thrash Metal) song, soaring vocal, fast guitar playing more, slows to breath then zooms. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Free Metal! December 30, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Amazon Verified Purchase
Here's another fully-loaded sampler full of free metal. Divebomb Records is the branch of Tribunal Records that specializes in reissues of out of print or just plain overlooked albums that deserve another listen. I've reviewed just about all of their albums separately, but thought I'd throw in my two cents regarding this sampler.

Divebomb's reissues have ranged from classic rock and AOR to traditional heavy metal, but what you get the most of here is high-speed, headbanging thrash metal, from pure thrash (Solitude, Forte, Elysium, Dominance) to crossover (Uncle Slam) and even progressive thrash (Anacrusis). There are also a couple of melodic rock songs from Line of Fire, Dimage and Casanova and some traditional metal from Widow and Oracle. They've even included advance tracks from upcoming reissues of Cyclone Temple, Confessor, Fly Machine, Solstice and Ironchrist.

If you're a thrash metal fan in particular, there's a lot to be excited about with this sampler, but anyone with an ear for classic metal should find something to like here. And hey, the price is right!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay. Fun, but far from innovative. March 11, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Amazon Verified Purchase
Pantera? Nope...Solitude. Maiden? Nope....Anacrusis. Priest? Nope....Forte. Megadeth? Nope....Uncle Slam.
You get the picture. This album is fun, and the more invested you are in the 80's metal sound, the more you will appreciate this. For me, it was okay, but nothing really stood out. Still, it was free, and good for a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sampler! March 8, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Amazon Verified Purchase
I loved this album. I'm new to metal and progressive rock and this was a great introduction for me. Paradise by Line of Fire was my favorite track. One little thing though... Have I gone crazy or is the track for Terrified by Anacrusis the same one as the one for Don't Talk About Love by Casanova?

If this was 30 years ago I'd be all over it. My head can't do metal these days. Teenager, definitely.

Just chek out the previews. Solid with lotsa tracks. Rivals an Armoury Records sampler which is high praise. This many tracks is a true sampler - I needed some new artists to chekout. - Kudos to Divebomb!
