Never was that much into them, but cool. They're definitely one of the pioneers.

Morbid Angel's Altars of Madness was released on this day, about twenty-eight years ago. An unsurpassed death metal classic.

One of my all time favorite death metal albums.

May 14, 2017 marked thirty years since Manowar's Fighting the World was released. To be honest, it's not an amazing album, and while there are some rather mediocre cuts, the title track, "Defender", and "Black Wind, Fire and Steel" save the album for me. Good for a bit of commercial touches, but past this album and Kings of Metal, I couldn't care less.

Today, May 15, 2017, three more albums celebrated their thirty years of existence. Those three albums are Cryptic Slaughter's Money Talks, G.I.S.M.'s M.A.N., and Mötley Crüe's Girls, Girls, Girls.

Also, twenty years ago, on May 14, 1997, Bruce Dickinson released Accident at Birth. Kuroageha's Capriccio was released the day after.

Scream Bloody Gore was released thirty years ago today. If you hate this album, then you are a wimp. This is the epitome of everything death metal. Axe

Twenty years ago, Mötley Crüe released Generation Swine. It turns out that it wasn't just Muslims repulsed by that album.

Yesterday marked thirty years since Brazilian power/speed metal band Viper debuted with Soldiers of Sunrise.

Sweet. The all-time great as far as I'm concerned (no surprise there I imagine).

It's pretty impressive when you step back and think of how quickly they were churning out classics back then. Sad Wings, Sin After Sin, Stained Class, and Hell Bent were all released within a little under three years with the biggest gap being 13 months between Sad Wings and SAS. Such a creative outburst that gave us all so much, whether you're a big fan of those albums, or perhaps the bands that were influenced by them.

Ah a very fun album indeed. I'm not exactly one of those hipsters that prefers speed metal Blind Guardian, but I'm pretty close to it.

Hey, I'm no hipster! Tongue

They just had far better musicianship to my ears on the first three albums, and then the quality slowly declined with every release since then.

First six albums are all good to me, though I consider Tales from the Twilight World my favorite.

I just spent some time with that Manowar this week and I'm with you on it. It's problematic but those two tracks in particular set it above water again. 

We had some important milestones last week: Rainbow Rising, Judas Priest Ram it Down, and Maiden's Piece of Mind all in a two day span or so.

Edit: I originally accidentally modified your post instead of quoting. Should be back to normal.
