Steel and Fire Records-True Metal Never Rusts Vol. 1

Steel and Fire Records

I happen to love compilation albums. In fact I've been collecting them now for longer than I can remember. From "Rising Metal" to the "Metal Massacre" series to "Metal For Muthas". You name it and more that likely I have it (even if they are mixed and matched between tapes, CDs, LPs and MP3s). So, with that I had to check out this compilation from upstart label Steel and Fire Records. First things first this is a free download although they are asking for a donation if you can swing it. It is well worth it and it will help the label out. I'm all for new record labels especially when their goal is to sign and release material by traditional heavy metal style bands! Really though the bands here cover all sorts of genres from NWOBHM inspired to power metal, thrash and speed. Pretty much everything except for doom. And you know what? These bands actually sound good. Where did they find 14 bands this good that were unsigned? Do yourself a solid and check out this compilation and if you can throw them a bone or two to help out.

I actually listened to this album a lot lately as I have been on the road. Amazing amount of great songs and bands. Really solid collection!

Thanks for the review of this. I purchased a download last night. Haven't heard it all yet, but so far so good.
