Kontinual, editor of the Dark Legions Archive
"In underground metal, there is a youthful coalescence of seemingly disparate ideas, a syncretism. These are rooted in themes of heroism, warfare, death, the beyond, history, endtimes -- indulgent glimpses into worlds beyond the individual and the dreary present, and far from merely temporal or personal concerns. The approach is boundless and powerful, and the music matches."

3 Sep 2009, 17:02 by Thrasher_DgeThis is a list of the bands and the albums of the 80's, that I admire and I think every metalhead should listen to.There are some "big guns", along with many other bands, which are not that popular.The genres, that you'll find below are thrash metal, speed metal, power metal & crossover and these are the simple boundaries of this collection list.
There are other amazing metal bands from the 80's (like W.A.S.P., Iron Maiden or Candlemass), but they weren't part of the same metal movement and so that's why they didn't found place on the list.I am going to update it, so keep looking around.
I hope this is going be useful for you, enjoy it and stay heavy!http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/9643/band.gif

22 Aug 2006, 01:58 by psyloveYou can pretty much count on Dark South-African Psy kicking arse, but rarely more than a Nexus release. Compiled by co-founder Liam Gibbs (Slug) this is a really solid compilation. Although it has some pretty dark ngiht-music on there I think more dedicated followers of the darker side of psy than myself might call some of this stuff "cheesy" but I think Shift and Slug's recent stuff has been really intelligent music.
It starts out with a new track from Slug, which is pretty damn tame by his standards. The Pitch Hikers track doesn't have the punch that their album did, but its still a pretty damn good song.
Then it gest into the tasty stuff! Abomination teams up with Slug for a rip-snortingly good pounding and relentless track, with just enough melody to hook those of you who aren't as fond of night music.
The track that makes this ablum what it is however, is Dead Meat from Shift. I haven't taken this off repeat in my car for two days now. …
