New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) band Dark Star released their self-titled debut in 1981, just as the scene was starting to heat up. The band's single "Lady of Mars" was included on the second Metal for Muthas album (the first helped launch Angel Witch and Iron Maiden, among others), and was poised to be a major player in the British metal scene. Sadly, success eluded the band, but the Dark Star debut remains an overlooked NWOBHM classic.

Entitled “Sanctuary” the CD is again very personal with plenty of great melodies and songs. The mix of lead and harmony guitar breaks and solos with great vocals and keyboards is fantastic with an overall songwriting on the highest levels all over. What we have here is a band that contains some very fine and experienced musicians who have put together a collection of songs that create a really classic album. Praying Mantis will forever be associated with the NWoBHM, but are in fact far more melodic.

Released in 2003, The Journey Goes On is the band's seventh studio album for metal act featuring dual vocalists, Dougie White (Rainbow/Malmsteen) & John Sloman (Lone Star/Gary Moore), the followup to 2000's 'Nowhere To Hide'. Includes guitarist Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) & founding members Chris & Tino Troy. The Journey Goes On is a first rate melodic rock album, and should especially appeal to fans of Demon, Ten, Cornerstone, Magnum, and John Payne-era Asia. If you're expecting a NWOBHM revival album though, you're going to be disappointed.

Darkthrone is an influential Norwegian metal band. They formed in 1986 as a death metal band under the name Black Death. In 1991, the band embraced a black metal style influenced by Bathory and Celtic Frost and became one of the leading bands in the Norwegian black metal scene. Their first three black metal albums—A Blaze in the Northern Sky, Under a Funeral Moon and Transilvanian Hunger (sometimes dubbed the "Unholy Trinity") —are considered the peak of the band's career and to be among the most influential albums in the genre. For most of this time, Darkthrone has been a duo of Nocturno Culto and Fenriz, who have sought to remain outside the music mainstream. Since 2006, their work has strayed from the traditional black metal style and incorporated more elements of traditional heavy metal, speed metal and punk rock, being likened to Motörhead.

Feat. Bruce Dickinson 'Iron Maiden'

Despite their origins as a bluesy hard-rock outfit, the members of Samson decided to jump the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) bandwagon, drafting a powerful young singer called Bruce Bruce (who later rose to fame as Bruce Dickinson with Iron Maiden) to give them much-needed visual and musical credibility. The scheme worked, and their first album, Head On, contains top-notch NWOBHM, featuring raw, energetic performances capped with often silly or naive lyrics…

Gods of Violence is the fourteenth studio album by the German thrash metal band Kreator. It is the band's first studio album in almost five years since 2012, marking the longest gap between two studio albums in their career. On this new studio album, thrash legends Kreator give us more of the same jackhammer style they built the band's name on only without quite as much personality or edge.

The fact is the 80’s decade was the most creative era in Music scene. Bands or several styles born and grow up in these years. In Heavy Metal scene, in particular, you could know and listen masterpieces like JUDAS PRIEST’s “British Steel” album or IRON MAIDEN’s classic “Powerslave”. And in underground scene was a lot of excellent band that unfortunately could grow up and make success. One of these bands is KILLEN.

This is a double CD of unreleased songs that the Troy brothers had. It also includes demos of not only Praying Mantis but also Escape (Stratus). A band the Troys started with ex-Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr and ex-Grand Prix vocalist Bernie Shaw. You can't expect much of the sound production as these are demos. This album will be a treasure for Praying Mantis fans.
