Medieval Kills

Medieval were a trio from Michigan who unfortunately only made one EP and one LP, but both were spectacular. They played a rather raw style that blended speed metal, classic metal and other styles. I think they were a little ahead of their times and they were on New Renaissance records and that label a big part of the demise of several good metal bands. This has never been released on CD so if you see the vinyl just get it because it truly is that good.

Number four is up on Friday. The hint is that this album contains a cover of a Lynyrd Skynyrd song.

Medieval is one of the forgotten gems of 80s metal. This album still sounds really good today.

Bob-It's a such a shame that they didn't get noticed more.
