Traditional heavy metal - I guess that’s what you call it.
Back in the early 80’s I listened to what my older brothers were listening to, mostly Top 40 stuff. We could get into a few hard rock/ heavy metal songs - your “Living After Midnights,” your “Cum on Feel the Noizes,” your “Hot for Teachers,” etc. For the most part metal scared me. The images of demons, and zombies, and werewolves; YIKES! The kids I knew who listened to that stuff and wore the black shirts and studded bracelets, they were stoners and dropouts, and we’re always drawing Satanic images on their school books; YIKES!
I’m 40 now, that stuff doesn’t scare me anymore, and I’ve been discovering some great music I missed over the years. Ronnie James Dio in all his incarnations, Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden. In fact I heard Maiden’s “The Trooper” for the first time this weekend. WOW!!! What a great song.
I’m not really a thrash fan. There’s a handful of Metallica songs I like, but nothing by Anthrax, or Slayer.
So, going by the likes I listed can you guys recommend some more metal for me? Any new bands that sound like what I’m looking for?
