Vinyl Collection

Picked up an incredible collection of classic metal vinyls from a lady in Dunkirk. Her brother was a pure metal head in the 80’s and amassed the following list of records over the last three decades. Sadly, he passed away last year and his sister was looking to send these gems to a new, loving home. I am beyond honored to carry the flame and show this collection the same love and care it received from its former owner.

I spent all day yesterday compiling this spreadsheet database to catalog the three boxes of records. I included the band name, year of release, album title, and any special notes included with the album. The year of release is relative to the issue by the record company at the time. I researched catalog numbers using http://www.discogs.com to make sure I have the most accurate information. About half of these albums would be considered obscure and many I have never heard of. I have already discovered several gems, including a Japan only release of Motorschool, a split album by Motorhead and Girlschool, rare bootlegs from AC/DC, Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden, as well as some totally awesome gems from early Swedish metal bands Axe Witch and Heavy Load.

All of the albums listed are in Very Good to Mint Condition. 90% still have the original plastic and price tags.

Turn the Hell On

Welcome to Turn the Hell On: a metal blog dedicated to all things loud, hard, and heavy.  You’ll find an archive of album and concert reviews as well as periodic ramblings about my maniacal love for this music. You’ll find content spanning across all genres and sub-genres of true metal.  If it has wailing vocals, ear-shattering guitars, and a thundering rhythm section, it’s here.  From new releases to hidden gems to all-time classics, you’ll find them all here packaged in unapologetic, hard-luck truth reviews.

The blog itself is titled after the song of the same name by New Wave of British Heavy Metal band, Fist.

Horns up.
