    Outstanding!

    I was never much of a 45 collector but you guys have just killed it in this thread with boatloads of them.

    Pretty sure this would be the most listened to EP in my record collection over the past 40 years.

    I just wish I'd have bought more back when they were easily and cheaply available.

    I've two copies of Bloodlust. The one on the right got damaged somehow. There's a chip knocked out of the edge of the vinyl that almost makes it to the lead groove. Since they were just three dollars I bought a second copy.
    In hindsight I wish I'd have done that with everything. :rflmao:

    Same here.
    I'd been trending that way for a while, but now it's pretty much metal all the time... and I'm good with that!!!

    Iron Maiden easily, especially when you get into the worldwide pressings too, it is nuts.

    I have a lot of 45s, always liked them, have barely posted any yet in this thread...i once took a picture of my entire 7" collection when I had it all out and was organising things. I'm thinking I have ~2000 of them, almost all metal and underground hard rock, some small amount of punk and indie stuff.

    Well, yes. I tend to forget all about Iron Maiden in terms of NWOBHM due to their massive success which kinda, sorta shot them out of the genre pretty quickly.
    That said I still think of them as a NWOBHM band, but not in the perspective of everyone else.

    :bowdown: Good gawd, I'll bet there are a ton of gems among those ~2,000 7" discs.

    Well, it arrived today. Took a few weeks via snail mail but found a vendor online who sold it for super cheap and free shipping. Snapped it up. This will be my commute to work tunes for the next couple of weeks! Thanks @Delarama for the recommendation.

    Have family here all week, but managed to fit in this gem of the UK underground this morning.

    Stormqueen recorded 4 demos between 1980 and 1983. The first 1980 demo is a total barnstormer, a real mystery how this band never got a deal back then, because the songs are excellent. Shown here are the 2 regular OPM records vinyl versions plus the test pressing and the HRR version that includes a reissue of their quite rare 7" (that unfortunately I do not have an original of :( ) and the cd that arrived in the mail yesterday.

    More NWOBHM I've never heard of.
    (I love this thread)

    That song "The Battle Of Britain" is great.
    How many songs and bands can we say define the NWOBHM movement? Add another with Storm Queen.

    You've got me looking for more. Here's "Raising The Roof".

    BTW the reason I bought the cd version is it is 4 euro wholesale with the order I just place, so ~$5.

    Nice!
    I need to look harder at the HRR website.
