Hi, I'm Laura from Tasmania. I'm obsessed with NWOBHM and 70's/80's metal in general. But my favorite band is actually SCORPIONS! Unfortunately there's not too much going on on my little island, so I also love to travel. In fact, I just arrived home from 6 months in Europe, where I visited 13 countries, 10 festivals and countless other gigs. (Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Ireland and Greece, I love you!)

Heard about this blog/forum from a friend, and it is KILLER! An unfortunate side-effect of living on the other side of the world is crazy postage prices, so it's great to be able to share some music like this instead! It's also nice to know there are people that share my passions, even if they do live 14000km away :) Cheeeerrs

First of all welcome aboard Laura, I think you are one of the very few ladies over here !
Needless to say we (well, at least I am...) overjoyed with some female company !

And what a fascinating introduction.
Seems you lead an adventurous life, in comparison with mine ??

13 countries you say ?
Was Belgium one of them ?

Hope you enjoy your stay over here !

Thanks guys! Yeah Shadowman, I did go to Belgium, but just to Bruges and Brussels. Both lovely! Lots of nice beer and chocolate, and I found some records that I'd been looking for for a while in a shop right in the very centre of Brussels, which surprised me, because they were cheap too!

And Strappado, Sweden was totally killer too! I'll be back next year :)

@Laura : well, glad you liked Belgium, unfortunately you only had time to visit the two most popular places... Of course we have WAY more to offer than Bruges, Brussels, beer and chocolate.
Maybe another time ?

@Rob : ireland ? tell us about the metal scene over there dude ?

@Virtue : virtue ? Care to elaborate ?

@Steven : Call me a complete moron if you like but euh... Netanya ? where is that N

@Hammer of War ? Poland ? Hopefully not only death and grind are made over there ?

check my sig, they are one of the best NWOBHM bands, combining power and thrash metal into a great mix! my official page has all their released recordings, which is a shame as there are some elusive demos out there which I cant get hold of.

Hi, I'm from Northern Norway. And played bass guitar in an band named "Molotov Cocktail" and have written the song "Ella" that the "heavyjoik" band Intrigue have covered on the CD Crossover. The CD is produced by Ronnie LeTekrø of TNT, and him and Tony Harnell both are backup singers on that particular track that I have mentioned earlier.
