“really “G”etting serious... wait until you see what we have coming up next!”
Gee I wouldn’t want to be Andy’s girlfriend... “I told you tonight would be special girl, and here we are, at KFC chicken!”
Apparently, it’s a 40yo band from the UK.
As a European metalhead since 1982, I never heard about them.
Got to say I'm very surprised. They are legendary. I'm not a fan in the slightest, but they are iconic.
I just listened to “See you in Hell”, and I’m not surprised, even my 13yo self would have hated this, coming from The Number of the Beast.
Also, in France back then we were much more in contact with German bands than UK bands (except of course Maiden/Saxon/Motörhead and the like), probably due to touring logistics and postal fees on trading tapes.
E.g. Trust played in Germany very early, but I’m not even sure they ever played in the UK.
Hence my love for Accept/Helloween/Running Wild, and then of course the German thrash wave.
