Metal Massacre #1 (Germany) 1984 (in German/auf Deutsch). Editors: “Dieter Machleid” and “Mario Erceg”
A relic from the German heavy metal scene circa 1984. I did not see an actual date printed anywhere, but judging by the albums featured, I can safely say this was put together in the latter half of ’84, and might have seen an early 1985 release. Printed “auf Deutsch,” it covers a healthy number of German bands at the time, as well as international, including: Avenger (PRE-Rage), Grave Digger, Iron Maiden, one of the German Overkills (yes, there were two, popular name!), Running Wild, Savage (UK), Steeler (GER), Stormwitch, The Rods, Tokyo Blade, Trance, WARLOCK(!) and more. If you can not read German, have fun with the imagery…or use their playlists as a reference for your vinyl-hunting ‘must have’ exploits- cheers and thanks to B.B. for the contrib!
