  • Hey guys, what NWOBHM demo songs do you consider the best?

    By demo songs I mean songs that were only released as demo during the NWOBHM era (they could have been released later on a compilation however) or that are simply better than the album version.

    Here is my top 10, in no order:

    Bitches Sin - White Lady
    Blitzkrieg - Armageddon (so much better than the album)
    *Dealer - All Work No Play (demo title of "Better Things to Do", again so much better)
    *Desolation Angels - Black Heart
    Pagan Altar - Reincarnation
    *Tröjan - Cheater
    Medusa - Can't Get Away
    Amethyst - Into the Night
    Race Against Time - Bleed You Dry
    Demon Pact - Escape

    * Unreleased on vynil/CD (to my knowledge)

    There are so many. I had a hard time trying to think of just ten examples.

    Here they are.

    Stricken - Death to life
    Reincarnate - Man of the hill
    Fugitive - Hey you
    Deep Machine - Feed the fever
    Scarab - All night long
    Sunset Blaze - Florence of Arabia
    Traitors Gate - Traitors Gate
    Metal Mirror - Tiger on the street
    Weapon - Midnight satisfaction
    Goldsmith - Give me your love

    Some of them are great songs but recorded with shockingly bad audio :( The sort of bands I would hope that High Roller Records would get hold of (Although they have with at least three of these bands).
