Metal School (Band documentaries)

I recently posted this guy's "Sound Barrier" video in another thread. I love these types of retrospective videos when done well and he does a good job.

Unfortunately he hasn't done too many. I've posted all the remaining ones (13).

They're not too long, only about 20 minutes or so each, but they're very enjoyable.

Thanks for the heads up - love this stuff too. Most of these are in my playlist for today. Just watched Kix and Skid Row - really good stuff. 

Check out this guy too. He has some good stuff as well, but looking at what's left, it looks like he's having copyright issues and stuff must be getting removed. He had 4 videos on the rise and fall of Skid Row but Skid Row themselves actually went after him for copyright infringements, as he used some clips from their videos. I wonder if this Metal School guy will be next? Either way, his Tigertailz and Shotgun Messiah / Zinny J Zan stuff is real interesting. Well worth a watch.

I'll check him out. I don't know if you've seen my "Razorfist - Metal Mythos" thread, but he's got some killer ones. Probably the best I've seen.

I recently found the Metal School videos and they are well done, detailed, quality videos and he seems to do bands he likes and that we like. A win win.

 

The razorfist mythos are good, usually waaay long but he to does bands that twist his knickers so he is very passionate about the content and I'd bet they take a hot minute to make so his videos are pretty infrequent.

 

I'll go check out the G'off link. Fingers crossed it has something to do with his nipples...

This could be his best one so far. It's a long one. A forty minute video featuring "Warlock" and "Doro", but do yourself a favour. 

My God, was there anything hotter than Doro back in the day?

Actually, forget "back in the day", I'd quite happily give her one now!

Actually, when it comes to Doro, forget now, I'm not ruling out necrophilia.

I've also posted the "All We Are" video.

THE BEST VIDEO EVER FUCKING MADE!!!!!!

Agreed, Doro is, was and always will be chubby inducing.

When Doro came down here in Australia for tour. She done interview with my mates on radio, before she got interview, I spent half hour talking about those 1980s years with her.

Was not they left I remember Johnny D of Britney Fox was in her band, maybe he shorten his hair and I didn't recognize him.

Dammit. Wanted to see that one. 

Hopefully he'll edit out the offending parts and re post.

If he does, then I'll re post it here.

Wonder why Icon got removed. I'm subscribed to this channel so watch the new ones as they come out. Really enjoy this channel. A lot of the bands I don't have many cds from, but always interested in their stories anyway. Armored Saint and Riot ones, even Loudness and now Savatage have given me the incentive to check out albums from their discography I haven't checked out before.

I agree 100%.

 Particularly with Savatage. 

I was always aware of them of course, but never gave them much of a go.

Yeah, I only ever owned the 'Gutter Ballet' album which sounds like it was a bit out there at the time. Keen to try a couiple of those mid to late 80s one. Not expecting too much, but curious. 

Same with Riot. Only ever owned one of their later albums... Maybe late 1990s or early 2000s. But curious to try their 86-93 era albums, out of curiosity. 

With Armored Saint, I only ever owned the awesome 'Symbol of salvation' and it's looking like that was a smart move. Entirely adequate band, but holy shit they just wrote the blandest songs outside of that record.

One of my fav Savatage albums "Power Of The Night" and this tasty rocker:

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
    • ▶︎ In Flight 1988 | > PHOENIXX < | Freddy Krumins (bandcamp.com) Phoenixx - In Flight CD. Heavy Harmonies Discography As best I can tell, this is a digital only release, which is a damn shame, as what I've listened to so far has been quite good!   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Seattle not only should be remembered for the grunge; there was an interesting hard rock scene there during the ’80s. One of these bands looking for recognition was PHOENIXX, a 6-piece rocking outfit including the classic twin guitar attack, cool keyboards / synths, and powerful singer with a clean voice. PHOENIXX played the club circuit and managed to professionally record an album only released locally on cassette and when they were ready to move to California, the group disbanded pursuing different interests. Now 2022 and PHOENIXX’s first and only album ”In Flight” from 1988 is finally reissued for all of us enjoyment, including 3 very well done demos previously unreleased. Musically this is a pretty awesome mix of ROUGH CUTT, DOKKEN, HURRICANE and some Americanized WHITESNAKE. There’s polished, elaborated songwriting, excellent vocals and very solid musicianship, while production and especially the mix, are second to none. Check the video below…
