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. And – they continue to make great music. But not only that. Their fame is such that some made it onto the 10 Most Popular Posts @ RockmusicRaider. And this for records way older than 40 years or so. So talk about an absolutely amazing reach. Let’s step in and find out what has been old’n’tasty lately at the RMR offices. [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

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?”. But then suddenly the sound changed big time towards the middle and started to rock you across the room. [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

AC/DC – Back in Black (1980) – Review


Okay, 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? It has not - and many bands are still there that rocked through music halls at that time to exactly this kind of music.
