Am I Evil was the other song Metallica covered. The original is better though.
And as for you Hatemonger, there are too many Metallica fans to fight, you just have to deal with it.

What they didn't cover they just ripped off the riffs anyway.

Never heard of them. Didn't they cover a metallica song or something?

Sucking my love is pure class but like so many NWOBHM bands found themselves out of favour either by mismanagement or being eclipsed by Maiden etc and then along came Thrash. Angel Witch were damn good too.

Isn't there 2 versions of Lightning to The Nations with a crappy re-recording a couple of years after release? The original is obviously far better.

Yeah there was the white label self released album that came out in 1980 and most of it got re-recorded as the Borrowed Time album a couple of years later.

I'm listening to Borrowed Time now & it's not as polished as I seemed to think it was.

Who knows I might even tackle Canterbury later.

Never heard Canterbury I have to say and are you on a metal kick recently then?

I'm working my way through a load of NWOBHM albums & metal bootlegs I downloaded ages ago.

I've never heard Canterbury either but I got it months ago. I want to see if it's bad or merely misunderstood.

It was all that documentary's fault

I like NWoBHM, but Diamond Head aren't really my thing. If you're exploring the genre, though, make sure you listen to Tank. The debut album "Filth Hounds of Hades" has some wonderful, bluesy riffs and the production doesn't rape the songs. Their later album, "This Means War" is quality as well, the main difference between it and "Filth Hounds..." is... on this album, they got proper songs.

Then there's Saxon... but that's an obvious one. Saxon are wonderful.

I'm a big Tank fan. Just like Something From Hell has been a fave for well over 20 years now. I managed to pick up the C.D in Germany last year, I was chuffed to bit's. Saracen were another great band too.

That`s because the group were Managed by Brian Tatler`s mother who was either just a housewife, cleaning lady or just a school cook They also refused to do gigs in London which was just another no-brainer, and far less talented groups such as DEF Leppard stole their limelight etc.

Pity really, as they were one of the most talented and melodic metal groups around, its a sad case of what should have been. Now and again I still listen to their early stuff and it has a richness that was well above the competition out there.
