Metal Clogs - Rave On Records compilation 1982

Metal Clogs

Metal Clogs is a nwobhm compilation,and the first release on the Rave On label who is best known for being the label that brought us the Mercyful Fate Nuns Have No fun 12" .

This compilation present four young metal bands from Holland (3) and Belgium (1) circa 1982, and I have to say that I enjoy every single track on this record with Frankenstein being the most surprising and enjoyable band for me with their blues influenced style of NWOBHM.

All the bands on this compilation bring something a little different to the table, however the compilation has a very cohesive feel to it. Overall, if you are a fan of early Rainbow, Iron Maiden or similiar acts then this record is right up your alley...Dave G.

Hello Dave, best wishes and a happy new year for you and the readers of this blog. In your description of this lp you mentioned three dutch bands (which is correct), the other band is not from Denmark. It's Crossfire whom are hailing from Belgium. Maybe you were thinking of Mercyful Fate and that may be the reason why you wrote Denmark.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks Steve, you are 100% correct. Crossfire from Belgium, I did have Mercy Fate on my brain...thanks for bringing this to my attention. I have made the correction.

Great compilation, one of the first I bought when I was young.
Two members of Crossfire played previously in The Onion Dolls, who put out one punk single in 1981, recently rereleased.
