    They pay attention to details on all their releases.

    LOL, you caught me typing and thinking at the same time. Always a dangerous combination. Shows you were paying attention though. I'll edit the original post to reflect their 1983 debut album. :rflmao:

    Stuff like Karrier is the reason I started this thread. :thumbsup:
    I've never heard them, and likely would never hear them. But now I'll seek them out.
    This thread, even if it got no more contributions as of right now would be one of the best NWOBHM databases on the web in my opinion.

    I agree, it's sure spurred me to actively seeking A LOT of titles by bands whose releases I missed in the late 70s & early 80s.

    Maiden voyage of yet another 'krieg lp finally on vinyl. A bright spot from the 1990's certainly.

    Hopefully that will get posted on youtube someday.
    I'm sure that it's up to their usual high standard.

    Good album, some songs are reworked versions from the mini-lp in the 90's

    I think I have one Bitches Sin song on one of the NWOBHM Vol's 1 thru 9 discs. Ice Angels.

    Love that inner gatefold with all the demo tapes. Great attention to detail

    This is a 1984 re-issue of sorts of Samson's first single, 1978's Mr. Rock And Roll. It was recorded before Bruce Dickinson joined the band and had Paul Samson doing lead vocals, keyboards and of course guitar.
    Future Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr handled the sticks for Samson on this.

    Samson - Mr. Rock & Roll
    1978 re1984 Thunderbolt THBE-1003

    Actually that is just part of the insert. Inner gatefold has band history & lyrics & credits, etc.

    You know, I may have more NWOBHM and do not realize it. I never payed attention to any classifications in music. If something sound good to me I would buy it. So for years I would hear a good hard rock band and buy it never knowing that NWOBHM even existed. So I have found some pretty cool stuff in this thread. Whats in a name?

    This is a demo anthology of RAT material. They were part of the East Midlands Bands Co-op, this is my "Part 1" feature of material from this Co-op. About the Music: Well they had a unique and very catchy sound. all I can say Is I just love this to death and actually listened to it a few times in the last days, it never grows old, thanks to the utterly fantastic vocal delivery of Dave Halliday (RIP).

    Well, a quick check against any list of NWOBHM bands would let you know for sure.
    This list at Wiki is reasonably complete. It even has Race Against Time which Rob just posted. That's yet another NWOBHM band that I've never heard of.
