Baltimore Rocks -- Blast From The Past

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I hope one day I can listen to all the samples in this thread to see who the good ones actually were, but no doubt a lot of them looked very cool, if nothing else. I also find it crazy that there were this many unsigned bands from the one area who, like I say, if nothing else at least looked the part.

I've listened and some good some bad some indifferent but hey they were doing it so props for that.

 

And Dave always mentions how that Baltimore/NY/DC scene was ridiculously happening.

 

That said and maybe it was just the era but those scenes were all over. No one talks about but me but Seattle/Tacoma had a monster glam/hard rock/metal scene back then, with just as many still unknown bands. I guess it just depends where you were.

 

And as always nice posts, please continue. Of not that singer for Wizekrak is the closest thing to Brett Michael in mannerisms not vocally I've ever seen.

Oh yes, wow. That Mona Lisa stuff is great. Would love to get a copy of whatever they recorded too.

 

Oh, and finally, we can stop searching. The best band name in history has arrived...

I have some stuff from the bands already mentioned, like the 7"single from Dagger (need the demo), etc. There were some great heavy/power/power/prog/doom bands there from which I have a ton of stuff.

 

Still looking for original demotapes from Manifest ( with Bobby Hicks, one of my all time favorite singers-RIP), Assailant, En force (great stuff, hardly you can go wrong when you took your name from 'ryche's best song ever).

And, if you happen to own any of these.....I would always entertain paying for them.

All I have nowadays is the stuff uploaded from cassettes to the computer. A lot of my stuff has been borrowed and never returned over the years. So I am glad a uploaded the ones I did.

Great compilation on vinyl + great tracks. Of course Mystic Force + Mona Lisa+Snydly Crunch steal the show. Still waiting for VOL.2. Now somebody please trade/sell me the Manifest - Yes or No (tape). :tumbsup:

    • greed,very much in the vein(not as good as) Wild Rose and last years  Odyssey Desperado,very safe but why oh why make a lyric video when the lyricas are so silly? Is it just to emphasise it?
    • lol @ the lyrics. This reminds me of that recent band that had very bad lyrics and cool melodies. But it's cool like those bands like Wild Rose, and others I can't think of at the moment. The one that starts with an L? Who knows... but it's nice safe melodic rock with silly lyrics. 
    • And here it is... it's on now?! Oh well, here it is. One of the coolest songs I've been enjoying in 2018, and probably AW's best song to date;  
    • I don't know where we've been posting about new releases from these guys through the years, but they've been churning them out at a decent level. There's a cool tune on the new album referencing this dream of theirs; that they're not in it for success but for the love of the music. Anyway... They haven't been setting my world alight, and no album compares to their debut, but they're okay. Anyway, the new mini-album (7 tracks) is mostly more of the same. But there is one song that has actually set my 2018 playlist on fire, which I think a lot of people here would like.  And, just found out it's not on youtube.   But it's called 'Get It On' and I'll try to post it when it's available. Get your ears on it if you can. It actually may appeal to the synthwave fans here... not that it's a synthwave song. But it's well off the AW beaten track... but in a great way.  This song is quite fine too, though, just to have something to post;  
    • Sounds worth checking out. I will seek. 
    • Yumsex. I still can't for the life of me understand why Steve West didn't play drums on the debut The Defiants album... kinda sad to see him and Bruno apart for what I am guessing might be the first time in their post D2 playing career? No, I lie. Westworld. But generally, the two have been together in everything and I was surprised when Mr West wasn't on The Defiants album. Good to hear he is home again.  And I agree - Eclipse and The Defiants is a nice start to 2019 for sure. 
    • Hmmm. There is a great song in there. But I also hear a bit of POL-ism that actually brings the song back a few pegs. If it was let to run free it'd be great... but yeah, just get rid of any POL influence please. Still, pretty cool tune. 
    • Yeah, I would agree with that as well.
