As you can understand from its title this is a compilation of 80ΓÇÖs Swedish Metal bands.
But donΓÇÖt expect ΓÇ£knownΓÇ¥ names like HEAVY LOAD, PROUD, PARASITE, GOTHAM CITY etc. the 10 bands included here are totally unknown and have released only demo tapes.
ΓÇ£The Resurgence of Swedish Steel 1983-1985ΓÇ¥ is the perfect example of how all compilation albums should be made.
The LP contains an 8-page insert (!!!) with information and photos for all bands plus a map of Sweden where we can where each band was located.
The album contains the following bands with one song each: HIGHLIGHT-ΓÇ£PilgrimΓÇ¥, CRIME-ΓÇ£BattlefieldΓÇ¥, EXIST-ΓÇ£Time for a SolutionΓÇ¥, RUBYCON-ΓÇ£Out of the NightΓÇ¥, ACT-ΓÇ£Christian CrusadersΓÇ¥, KILLERHAWK-ΓÇÿWish me wellΓÇ¥, NEPTUNE-ΓÇ£EnemiesΓÇ¥, STORMBRINGER-ΓÇ£Voodoo NightΓÇ¥, ORIONS SWORD-ΓÇ£Atomic WarΓÇ¥ and SHYLOCK-ΓÇ£The Chosen OneΓÇ¥.
Not all the songs are great but no song can be considered a filler one.
For me the best songs in this LP are RUBYCON-ΓÇ£Out of the NightΓÇ¥, NEPTUNE-ΓÇ£EnemiesΓÇ¥ (their bass player was also in GOTHAM CITY), ORIONS SWORD-ΓÇ£Atomic WarΓÇ¥ and SHYLOCK-ΓÇ£The Chosen One.
For those into Swedish Metal (and not only) this is ideal.
This release is limited to 500 copies.
