1984 ....  I was listening to Slayer's 'I am the antichrist' (https://youtu.be/tdt6-jJ1_Ew)
Most people told me I would grow out of that kind of music.   Happy to say I proved them wrong !

Helstar still exists and released their latest album (EP) a few months ago (including covers of songs from Accept, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest.



Heh.  Nowadays, it feels like there's more aging fans of oldschool heavy metal than there are young'uns getting into it.  Today's younger metal crowd mainly seems focused on emo metalcore and bands like Avatar that only bear a passing resemblance to actual heavy metal.  Not that that's a bad thing of course, but when people claim to be "metalheads" without liking or having listened to Judas Priest or Iron Maiden or Celtic Frost, it makes me shake my head and sigh.   :(

Thanks for the heads up about the new album (looks like it's a compilation?).  According to Metal-Archives, their last few albums (most recently in 2016) seem to be highly reviewed.  Pretty rare for a band that old to still be going strong!  https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Helstar/142
I know they're not original oldschool but I can really recommend these bands when you're gaming...

Beast in Black


Powerwolf


Amon Amarth


Sabaton


I will probably play a couple of FoG Medieval scenarios on Sunday and try out Combat Mission Fire and Rubble.

It's kind of silly to investigate whether or not a Clinton is lying. That's sort of like investigating why the sky is blue. Banzai_Cat

Pretty much like and give regular airtime to all those bands too.

Of course I also still like punk, techno / industrial, dubstep, and any number of other non-mainstream music types.
Insert witty comment here.
