V/A – Metal Attack Vol.1 1985

48
Now a little trip back to my Metal days with this nice compilation from Noise Records. Six bands and we kick off with Grave Digger from Gladbeck, formed 1980 and they’re still alive, Running Wild were formed 1976 in Hamburg. They were part of the German metal scene to emerge in the early to mid-1980s. Over the course of their career, they have released sixteen studio albums, three live albums, five compilation albums, and six singles/EPs. Although their earlier releases contained Satanic themes and imagery, Gerald “Preacher” Warnecke, the guitar player of the band, was studying theology at the time and is now a pastor in Cologne. Helloween‘s a power metal band also from Hamburg, founded 1984 by members of bands Iron Fist and Gentry. They released fifteen studio albums, three live albums, three EPs, and twenty-seven singles, and has sold more than eight million records worldwide. Warrant were formed 1983 in Düsseldorf by Jörg (vocals & bass), Thomas (guitar), Oliver (guitar) and Lothar (drums). Also Thomas Franke played all drums in 1985 studio recordings of both EP and LP and in 1999 recordings as well. They went on tour with Warlock in 1985, after releasing an EP and an LP the band soon split up. Sinner was formed by vocalist and bassist Mat Sinner in 1982, based in Stuttgart the band released their first album, Wild’n’Evil in 1982. This album, along with the next two (Fast Decision and Danger Zone) were raw affairs, having little in common with the melodic metal they would later become known for. Celtic Frost were a Swiss extreme metal band from Zurich. They are known for their strong influence on the development of extreme metal. Formed in 1981 as Hellhammer, the band became Celtic Frost in 1984 and was active until 1993. Their music included elements of various extreme metal styles. Their earlier music was classified as thrash metal and death metal and their later work was classified as doom metal. The level of experimentation on albums such as Into the Pandemonium led certain journalists to describe the band’s direction as avant-garde metal.
