Old’n’Tasty Records @ RockmusicRaider – Vol. I

RockmusicRaider - Old n Tasty - Old Rock and Metal of all kindsDid you know that RockmusicRaider covered many old(er) Rock and Metal records over time? No? We did. And will continue – as time allows – to add more to this specific endeavour.

The performance of bands in the ’70s and ’80s brought about some absolute classics that many enjoy to this day. Be it now in a Progressive Rock arena or the early stages of Heavy Metal or any other sub-genre for that matter. All of these bands contributed to the musical soundscape we find ourselves in today.

And to top all this, whilst all of the original band members start to get kinda old, many of them are still alive and kicking.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Iron Maiden – The Number of the Beast (1982) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast - Album CoverSome two years after AC/DC‘s attempt to fame with Back in Black, came along a newly empowered – or should I say emboldened – Iron Maiden with their own stellar album The Number of the Beast. Success was far from certain at that time – the band just got rid of their vocalist Paul Di’Anno and replaced him with Bruce Dickinson. Then they adapted the song writing style to the vocal powers of the new lead singer. As it turned out, this was actually the major kick-off that launched this band on a course to fame that still continues to this day.

Of course, once you started listening to the friggin’ vinyl (nothing else existed back then, believe it or not..) with the lead track Invaders you went “Okay, not so bad, but where is the real spice?”.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

AC/DC – Back in Black (1980) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - ACDC - Back in Black - Album CoverOkay, I get it – we write the Year of the Lord 2014 and this AC/DC record is so old it should already have turned to dust. Along with everything else that lived back then. Right? But you know what? Back in Black did not descend into oblivion. And many of them bands are still present today. The ones that rocked through music halls already way back in time. Okay, admittedly a bit more worn out they are indeed these days and not so fresh anymore, but still commanding sizable audiences.

And I do agree that the only thing they really know how to do (and constantly deliver) is good, old, solid Hard Rock (some call it Heavy Metal and I tend to agree) and they hardly changed over the years.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
