    I like Outlaw the best on Fire Down Under, but Don't Hold Back is great too.

    How about...
    Cities - Burn Forever
    Praying Mantis - Captured City
    Manilla Road - The Fires of Mars and The Ram
    Pentagram - Madman
    Cirith Ungol - Join the Legion
    Satan - Ice Man
    Rage - Sinister Thinking
    Warlord - Lost and Lonely Days
    Lethal - Another Day and Obscure the Sky

    Villain - Kamikaze :headbang:
    Anthem - Empty Eyes
    Sortilège - Délire d'un fou
    Attack - Death Rider
    Savage Grace - Bound to be Free
    Warlord - Soliloquy

    @zinescene : I could agree on Piledriver if it was a real band, but sadly it was only a commercial project :(
    how about "Gold n Glory" by Faithful Breath?

    Judas Priest - Living Bad Dreams

    Not an obscure band obviously but it said obscure songs. And this was never released except now its a bonus track on the Painkiller remaster. One of their best songs ever.

    Viking - Hellbound
    Cirith Ungol -- Blood and Iron?
    Krank -- Rented Heat
    Redrum -- Power Corrupts (title track)

    There are others (like Artch,The Omen) but I don't remember the tracks off hand.

    Has anyone been able to copy old tapes and vinyl to a digital format to rip to a CD? I gotta try this before my deck eats the last of some of these bands.

    Blood and Iron is a cool song...Atom Smasher is great too. Have you heard their last album, Paradise Lost? Hard to find (it hasn't been reissued as far as I know), but it has some great epic songs on it.

    I don't know those other bands, I'll have to add them to my list to check out (if I can find any samples anywhere).

    That's a very good idea. Not only do you want to be able to enjoy your music after the cassettes expire, but some of that stuff doesn't have much distribution out there. That makes it difficult for people like me who are rediscovering classic metal to find some of these hidden treasures.

    If you have a sound card on your computer, you can hook the line out from a phono or tape deck (or stereo/receiver if you have everything running through that) into the line in on the sound card. Then use some sort of audio program to grab the input. That will most likely store it as a WAV file on your computer. Then you'd have to encode it to MP3, which might even be some other program. I could help you if you're using a unix system, but if you're not, this is about as much help as I can give.

    B.A.D. is among my favourite tracks on the first (and my fave) W.A.S.P. album :) It rules!

    "Those teaaaaaaaars that you cry leave a... blood staaaaaaaain.... they fall to the ground like a sweeeet rain..."

    Blackie is the greatest!

    I thought of another...

    Motley Crue - Rodeo!

    Don't know when it was done, sounds like somewhere between Theater Of Pain and Girls Girls Girls but it is GREAT! Obviously wasn't used coz they didn't want another ballad on the album.

    Hell yeah, Jesters of Destiny "Fun at the Funeral" is a good album featuring none other than Sickie Wifebeater!! End of time is great.

    other's I would certainly add:

    Razor "Evil Invaders"
    Saint Vitus "dying inside"
    Mentors-"Peepin TOm"
    Bloodcum_"son of sam"
    Atomic Rooster- "death walks behind you"

    Absolutely amazing song. The vocals on that song are among the best ever recorded in the 80s metal scene. The singer for Sortilege was among the finest singers in metal. The harmonies in particular are insane. Best song Queensryche never recorded.

    I'll add a few:
    Z-Lot-Z - The Shadow
    Lethal - Programmed
    Banshee - We Want You
    Edguy - Holy Water
