I'd have to agree with you there J.D.. It would be cool if there were a couple of them out there to bide the time between shows from out favorites, a couple I wouldn't shelling hard earned cash for. Let me know if you run across any!! (seriously) [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by J.D. DIAMOND from Saturday, May 01, 2010 12:40:35 PM)

Yeah I've heard them before,I don't have anything by them but yeah they are old school metal-punk from the 80's your correct.They are not bad for oldschool. And yeah,metal/heavy metal doesn't need to be as popular as Iron Maiden is when the traditional metal giants retire,but it would be cool if there were a band or 2 that emerged onto the scene that had more influences of Priest,old Maiden and Saxon.I wouldn't want a band to totally copy them,but I really think that more bands should try and incorporate traditional british heavy metal into thier style and image but somehow still write quality good songs,wich is easier said than done I know,but it would be nice,
High Spirits is recent band I particulary like, the voice isn't "wow!" but is pretty decent for a demo, anyway I think is enough classic metal innfluenced to put a couple of song here:
About the topic: I actually agree about golden age of Heavy Metal being completely gone, the passion for classic Heavy Metal(Saxon, Diamond Head, Judas Priest,etc) will be dramatically reduced, most kids today are or into death/gore/black metal or trendy mallcore and crapcore, that can't be changed, kids always want the louder and noisier music, even if is crap music(mallcore), and old classic metal bands dissapearing is not helping, and as any kind of music, Is not gonna actually disappear, just reduced the amount of listeners, I hardly believe that a new band will appear and gonna be as great as the traditional metal giants, so we must accept that Heavy Metal will become a more dark and underground movement that it is right now, I can live with that, for me this was never about belonging to a larger group or a trend, it just will be more difficult to find metalheads, true metalheads, in the future.
PD: hey J.D., that's one great speed metal album I tell ya, Exciter has always been an amazing speed metal trio, and talking about metal trios, have you ever listened Warfare??, great britsh punkish metal vibe:
