Monumentum

Sodom - Agent Orange

Sodom - Agent Orange

Let’s start by saying that I believe SODOM is the only one off the ‘big three’ of the German Thrash Metal that still remain approximately loyal to their initial principles. I know, it’s so mature to expect from a band to stick to its roots when performing for more than 25 years in a row but the directions and paths both KREATOR and DESTRUCTION once followed (or still follow) in their post-80s discographic steps have confirmed that the trio from Gelsenkirchen needs a special space in our heart for more reasons than just for their musical offerings all these years.

Grim Reaper - See You In Hell

Grim Reaper - See You In Hell

GRIM REAPER worked during the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal era and were initially founded during 1979. They were (un)lucky enough to release their first full length LP in a year when the whole movement was settling down - at least in its original basis. The band centered on furious vocalist Steve Grimmett and notable guitarist Nick Bowcott and they were capable enough of gaining some international exposure with their three albums between the years 1983-1987.

Virgin Steele - The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell: Part II

Virgin Steele - Marriage Of Heaven And Hell Part II

For lovers of the 80s Heavy/Power/Epic Metal style this NY outfit was already a household name; VIRGIN STEELE did burst out in 1981 and with a mixed endeavor of street Metal and guitar driven Hard Rock they were one of the first bands along MANOWAR playing what was soon to be called epic Metal. The David DeFeis fronted outfit was initially founded by guitar maestro Jack Starr who later on departed to pursue a solo career.

Symphony X - Paradise Lost

Symphony X - Paradise Lost

Of course, it seems strange having a 2007 album in the monumentum section but you have to keep in mind that some albums are not just important for the Metal scene. Some albums mark an important moment in a band’s career as a starting or an ending to a specific era/discography. In the case of SYMPHONY X “Paradise Lost” set a milestone in the band’s history leaving behind the heavy and - I will dare to say - restrictive sound of Progressive.
