Metal At The End Of The 70’s 78-79


Thumbs up: +1
Most significant records at the end of the first era of metal music.
The last year of the decade shows how some bands face the eighties with the menace of punk and disco music some bands take advantage of that like Kiss sounds more pop other like Motörhead goes harder, Judas Priest finish those years as a leaders of the Euro HM. Rush made their last epic record, Ronnie James Dio leave Rainbow, Black Sabbath made their last record with Ozzy and AC/DC lost Bon Scott. Saxon maybe starts in what became in the NWOBHM and lots of new bands emerged like Riot with their frenetic heavy metal, Van Halen made the first couple of self titled records with a new sound based on the virtuosity of Eddie Van Halen.

Down to Earth? Why not the last album with Ronnie from 1978.

Having looked for the ones I do not know, I'm not surprised I have not listened to them before, nothing much to write home about (obviously my opinion).

A few great ones in there anyway.

Yes Sorcery was a very interesting band,

I agree with your number one spot, Hemispheres would be mine too, second for me would be Long Live Rock And Roll by Rainbow.
