YEARLISTS

LINKS & BANNERS


This website contains stuff about the most important NWOBHM (=New Wave Of
British Heavy Metal) bands from the 80's (ANGELWITCH, BITCHES SIN, JAGUAR,
WITCHFYNDE, RAVEN, SATAN, TYGERS OF PAN TANG, BLITZKRIEG, SWEET SAVAGE,
SAMSON, MYTHRA, LYADRIVE, DEALER, ELIXIR, etc.), my fave US Metal bands
(HALLOWEEN, JAG PANZER, WARLORD, CULPRIT, CIRITH UNGOL, S.A. SLAYER,
MILITIA,RIPPER, etc.) and the European (and Japanese) Metal scene.

Also you'll find some interviews, that I did over the past years (and there's
more coming up), plus a lot of other interesting stuff to 'spice up' this site.

Furthermore, I'd like to dedicate this to my all-time guitar hero Randy Rhoads
(R.I.P and THANK YOU you for being such a great inspiration!!) and to all the
Gods of Metal and Hard Rock (MOTORHEAD, PRIEST, SAXON, THIN LIZZY, OZZY, MAIDEN,
DIO, etc.)

TRUE METAL WILL NEVER DIE !

Cheers you lot,

Toine "Randy" van Poorten.
