Back in the late 70s Richard Kueht and Paul Trowbridge played guitar in PENTAGRAM before being replaced by Victor Griffin, who were all familiar with. They hooked up with Steve Angel (singer/bass) and drummer Ronnie Sharpe and formed REACTOR. They played some live gigs in the mid 80's, one that is featured in this release. Shortly after the gig, Richard moved down to Florida and was replaced by Mike Reid, and at that time renamed the band THE REAL WORLD. They ended up only recording a 6 song studio EP which is the first 6 songs off of this release, that was never released until now. As far as their sound is concerned, it just came out natural for them, nothing forced, just basically some guys jamming good old SABBATH/PENTAGRAM influenced dirty Rock N Roll with a "social relevant" lyrical message to the fans. The music is raw, heavy, and catchy. After many line-up changes (even Joe Hasselvander (he played guitar) was in the band at one point), they decided to call it quits as it was more or less something for these guys to hang around and do with no pressure and to let off some steam rather than a band looking to go somewhere. This is one of the most obscure 80s bands around the Maryland/Virginia area, but I can tell you this is without a shadow of doubt quality Heavy Metal/Rock and deserves to be in anyones metal collection whos looking to complete their Maryland/Virginia Doom collection.

IRON MAN - BLACK NIGHT

Very few bands come close to sounding like the classic BLACK SABBATH, but I think IRON MAN along with WITCHFINDER GENERAL, PENTAGRAM, and PAGAN ALTAR are the closest from the beginning. IRON MAN is a very special band to the underground heavy metal scene which craves for ... read more »

LOST BREED - THE EVIL IN YOU AND ME

Back in the 80s it was fairly common for bands to move to LA to try and make it big. Lost Breed is among the many bands that made that trip from NY to LA. They soon met up with the legendary Scott "Wino" Weinrich, whom at the time had already had 2 Saint Vitus ... read more »

GARDEN OF WORM - GARDEN OF WORM

Finally the time has come for Garden Of Worm to release a full length album. For quite some time now they've been slowly putting out demos and Eps since 2004 to experiment and carve out their own unique brand of Heavy / Progressive Doom Metal. I'd say they've definitely ... read more »

CRISIS (USA) - ARMED TO THE TEETH (2CD)

Obscure US 80's Metal band CRISIS formed back in 1980. Taking a heavy dose of their influences from MOTORHEAD, RAVEN, IRON MAIDEN, and the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, it wasn't to big of a suprise that they got signed to an English label, Bullet Records. Their debut ... read more »

 

TEMPLE OF VOID - LORDS OF DEATH

Reissue on WHITE/GOLD/RED coloured vinyl of the second full length of Temple Of Void, based in the U.S.A. 'Lords of Death' is an insanely, irrevocably massive slab of doom/death, and the album by which they will rightfully take their seat at the throne.

 

CASSLE - CASSLE

CASSLE - CASSLE

Formed in the late '70s its not a surprise that Cassle has inherited those influences, in particular Deep Purple, Rush, and Judas Priest. Also since their original EP wasnt released until 1983, they definitely have a lot of Iron Maiden and Saxon in their sound as well. I ... read more »
