MetalCast Episode 224

Another Special, yeehaa! Yes, the Legends of Metal. Anyone can instantly name tens of bands who have had a major impact on this great style of music. We made a Pioneers episode some time ago, where we focused on bands that started or were co-responsible for starting a specific style in the world of Metal, be that Heavy, Progressive, Doom, Black and so on. Many of them are also legends of their craft, but in this new episode the emphasis lies more on the bands we all know, whether they started a genre or just helped to further promote it. As usual, we tried to make the list as varied as possible, thus spanning several styles: Judas Priest, Kreator, W.A.S.P., Alice Cooper, Gamma Ray, Obituary, Skepticism, Dream Theater, Emperor and not to forget, Paradise Lost. Plenty of bands left for more episodes, but we’ll start with this one. Enjoy!

    Great to hear you guys open the episode with Judas Priest! I saw them just a few days ago on their final world tour and they kicked ass. Priest will always be my most favorite band…

      Hi Evan. This song will always be special for me as it is the first Priest song I ever heard back in the 80s. It was played on Tommy Vance’s Friday Rock Show on BBC Radio 1 and it blew me away. Since then I have always enjoyed the Priest….
