Ironcross - Bloodhounds - TKT/Master records 1982

I picked this little gem up at a recent record show based solely on the cover art having never heard of Iron Cross previously.  I have a habit and maybe it's a bad habit of buying pretty much any old metal record I come across whether I am familiar with the band or not, and I tend to buy a lot of stinkers in the process. Luckily, Iron Cross is not a stinker, but a pretty damn good nwobhm metal record with a cool Judas Priest or even Rainbow vibe at times.

I did a little internet research and discovered that Iron Cross formed in Finland in 1976. I also found a bio and some you tube tracks, see below for a song and a link to the bio...Dave G.

Warrior - Dead When It Comes To Love 7" ep Neat Records 1982

Here's a cool NWOBHM 7" that doesn't seem to get too much appreciation from the collectors of this sort of thing. The 3 songs on this platter may not be top notch NWOBHM , but the second song "Stab You In The Back" is a very good song, and the remaining 2 songs are certainly enjoyable. Overall I would recommend this record to any fan of this genre, unfortunately I cannot find a you tube clip for my favorite song, but below is a link to the song "Dead When It Comes To Love:....Dave G
