U.S. METAL ALBUMS Part 1 (1976-1983)

Howdy folks.
Yup, i'm back again, scarcely a month after the last post at Still Alive & Well with another thrilling selection from Rawk's very own back-in-time basement treasure trove.
Not too many big names amongst tonight's selection, although those of you of a certain age and the connisseurs amongst you will surely recognize monickers like SORCERY (yes, the same band who released "Sinister Soldiers"), FULL MOON, MESSENDGER, HYKSOS and CULPRIT.
Sprinkle in the likes of BAD AXE, BEOWULF, (NOT the Suicidal Tendencies related act), FORTNOX, JOE STEP, BLACK DIAMOND and AMERICADE and what you have here is a pretty good cross section of what was happening in U.S. Metal between the years of 1976 and 1983.
Hope you find something that'll make your (May) day.
Please feel free to use the comments section to share your thoughts, rememberances, ire and love, and to heap lavish praise upon me too of course.
As per usual, all rars come packed with cover art and info txt files.
No passwords needed.
Death to false metal.
