Sveto bilo Ime njegovo...

EJ ljudi kaj ima?
Ovih dana je sve znam kak da se izrazim. Onak hvata melagana sjeta na ljeto 2004. Možda mi je to jedno od najboljih ljeta ikad u životu. Stakao sam novo društvo, neke nove navike...Onak sada kada se svega toga prisjetim...Onak zazirem od toga da se vratim u to vrijeme. Bilo je to vrijeme kada se po cijele dane zafrkavalo, hodalo se po gradu, cure su se tražile i tak... Ono možda ne zvuči naj, ali nama je u to vrijeme bilo zwer...Eksperimentiralo se na veliko, i izvlačili su se solidno zaključci.
Eto ovih dana tako ja perem po blogovima... Ima svega...
Stvari koje jako mrzim na blogovima:
1. Blogovi koji se svode samo na tone i tone slika
2. Lyricsi pjesama - što će nekome lyricsi? ak mu trebaju nađe si ih sam, a ionako nitko ne čita dok se stave
3. Brije da se prek bloga postane popularan
4. Dok se štancaju komentari bez reda
5. Dok se blog zatrpava miljom nepotrebnih stvari

Stvari koje mi se sviđaju:
1. Dizajn koji je napravljen od strane vlasnika bloga
2. Jednostavnost
3. Brutalni tekstovi potkrepljeni kojom slikom
4. Dok blog predstavlja vlasnika onakvim kakav je...

Eto to su onak moji kriteriji za čitanje nečijeg bloga.

Eto jučer su mi se desile neke sjebane stvari. Danas idem dalje...
See ya!!!

History of NWOBHM
What is NWoBHM?
The early movement was associated with the likes of Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Tygers of Pan Tang, Def Leppard, Motörhead, Triarchy, Blitzkrieg, Quartz, Sweet Savage, Girlschool, Saxon, Diamond Head, Venom, and Samson, among others. The image of bands such as Saxon (long hair, denim jackets, leather and chains) would later become synonymous with heavy metal as a whole during the 1980s.

Despite the variable success of bands such as Iron Maiden, Saxon, and Def Leppard the true heart of the movement revolved around the seemingly endless supply of British bands playing similar styles at the time. NWOBHM is mostly associated with punk rock aesthetically through the DIY and minimalist ethics of most of the bands, many of whom literally did not last beyond a demo recorded in a bedroom. Looking at most comprehensive lists of bands of the time reveals hundreds of obscure or short lived acts such as Expozer, Jaguar, Mendes Prey, Mithrandir, Twisted Ace, Hellanbach, Zenith, Distrainers, who later changed their name to Alien and Dragster. While the average heavy metal fan would possibly gloss over these no-namers while looking for more recognizable acts, record collectors revere such bands.

The sheer number of low rent demos and 7 inch records of the era (the number is indeed in the thousands), as well as the limited amount of information and media coverage of the genre, has led to most of the releases becoming individual record collecting holy grails.

Records originally pressed for likely less than Ł1 have sold more recently to collectors for hundreds of dollars. In some cases as low as 1 copy of a record is known to exist. Hollow Ground's Warlord 7 inch is probably the most prominent example. Acetates in those days were normally studio master copies kept as backup, so a very limited few of the recording exist. The band is also literally unknown by any standards, as each member is listed on the center label by their first name, and only one newspaper mention of the band playing live has ever been uncovered.

Considering that many further bands possibly did not even last long enough to record their material, it must be taken into account that during the golden years of the genre (1978-1981) upwards of a thousand NWOBHM bands may have existed.
