Thor (Canada): Unchained (Vulcan Sky)
With song titles like “Ride from Hell,” “Rock the City” and “Lightning Strikes” and other songs about heavy metal, this is the traditional, rocking, good-time heavy metal zone.
There are 11 songs, from speedy, shreddy and very catchy racers like “Ragnarok,” to exercises in maximum audience sing-along like “Rock the City” and “Anger,” to uptempo fist-raisers like “Warhammer,” etc.
Straight late 70s/early 80s heavy metal, in the spirit of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and those early 80s non-thrash bands from the United States and Germany, as well as the U.K. legendary, household name bands from the early and mid 80s. Old school traditional heavy metal, for sure.
There’s lots more info
