'15th Anniversary Album' - Metal Blade-various artists 2-CD
Mike Reed | USA | 12/12/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"One thing I've rarely seen in the liner notes of a CD release is a list of EVERY disc a record company has EVER put out.This one has just that.A print out of every single album that Metal Blade has ever unleashed on an unexpected society from 1982-1997.Both discs,combined have twenty bands with one song a piece,except Armored Saint and Fates Warning,having two songs each.Tracks I liked the most were Hallow's Eve's "Speed Freak",Witchkiller's "Day Of The Saxons",Gwar's "Slaughterama" and the somewhat of a metal anthem Lizzy Borden's "American Metal".A great way to relive some fine moments in '80's metal."
The Dark Underbelly Of 80's Metal

"In the 80's, the airwaves were filled metal produced by bands such as Warrant, Bon Jovi and Motley Crue, yet there was another faction of metal listeners...those who chose to reside in the "underground". The 80's was also the birth time of Death metal and Thrash, both which are represented on this anthology. One of the go-to labels of the 80's, Metal Blade, along with Combat records, released some incredible music, including early Metallica tracks, and were a powerful force to be reckoned with. Some of the bands on this anthology are probably known by even the casual metal fan, but many are definitely cult. Bands such as Lizzy Borden, Omen, Liege Lord, Heretic, etc produced some wonderful melodic thrash that deserved the airwaves but unfortunately did so only on Metal based shows such as Metalshop. So, if you missed out the first go around or want a better understanding of metals progression, this is a great place to start. This set barely skims the surface, but it does cover the timeline which Metal Blade ruled supreme. Power, Thrash, Speed, Death, and more.......this isn't your Grand Dad's heavymetal. The packaging is adequate, as is the information provided, but the music does the talking. Get it!"
