Before IRON MAIDEN…..There Was IRON MAIDEN

Apparently there are two bands called Iron Maiden, but most of us are only aware of one. However, before Steve Harris formed the Iron Maiden we all know and love there was another band called Iron Maiden that released an album called Maiden Voyage in 1969

Here is that album in full….

Did You Know That N.W.A. Was An Influence On GWAR?

gwarnwa

It’s true….no bullshit.

Many GWAR fans already know this, but those that don’t know might want to pay attention.

When comparing N.W.A.’s “Gangsta Gangsta” to GWAR’s “The Salaminizer” it becomes obvious that some lyrics from the first inspired the lyrics to the latter. So, now you know.

N.W.A. – “Gangsta Gangsta”

Here’s a little somethin’ bout a nigga like me
Never shoulda been let out the penititary
Ice Cube would like ta say
That I’m a crazy mutha fucka from around the way
Since I was a youth, I smoked weed out
Now I’m the mutha fucka that ya read about
Takin’ a life or two
That’s what the hell I do, you don’t like how I’m livin
Well fuck you!
This is a gang, and I’m in it
My man Dre will fuck you up in a minute
With a right left, right left you’re toothless
And then you say goddamn they ruthless!

GWAR – “The Salaminizer”

Here’s a little something from a God to a slave,
I never should of been let out the fucking microwave!
We’re on this planet and we’re running a muck,
I should give a shit but I don’t give a fuck!
Ever since I was a scumdog, I blew a cum-wad.
I need a mother-fucking suckadickalickalong!
Burning a mall or two, blowing the load I spew.
You don’t wanna fucking fuck me? I’ll Fuck you!
This is your ass, and I’m in it.
My man sexy will fuck you up in a minute.
With an axe, sword, mace, pike your limbless.
Then I’ll fuck your ass till it’s rimless!

The Most Awesome Headbanging Parrot You Will Ever See

Now, Queen isn’t exactly Metal, but when you play a song by Queen and a parrot starts headbanging…then it becomes Metal instantly. In my opinion, Snowball here is the most Metal parrot I’ve ever seen. I can only image what he would do with some Pantera.

You just have to see this for yourself.

SWEET SAVAGE: The Band Metallica Tried To Sound Like

Unless you are familiar with the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) movement in the late 1970s and early 1980s, then you probably have no clue about the band Sweet Savage.

Well, let me just get this out in the open and say that it’s quite obvious (to me) that Metallica frontman James Hetfield tried as hard as possible to mirror the vocal styling of Sweet Savage frontman Ray Haller (at least in the beginning). Metallica also  covered the Sweet Savage song ‘Killing Time’ as a b-side to “The Unforgiven” single.

Listen to this track from Sweet Savage called ‘Eye Of The Storm’ that appeared on the NWOBHM ’79 Revisited Double CD compilation  that was co-curated by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. If you weren’t told otherwise, you’d probably think it was early Metallica.

 

Side note: Sweet Savage also featured guitarist Vivian Campbell (Dio, Def Leppard) until 1983.
