Manilla Road – Crystal Logic
It doesn’t matter how many Metal bands you know and love, there are always more out there. And obscurity doesn’t automatically suggest inferiority. After 25 years of active Metal worship I only just discovered this great album from 1983 and it’s already essential listening at HMO Mission Control. Flaming Metal System, in particular, hits the spot so much it makes me wonder if I was a barbarian in a past life!
