Last week’s Vintage Sunday was a lot more recent than our usual batch so we’re taking a giant leap backwards, all the way to 1980 for Ozzy‘s debut solo album.

Attempting to show Sabbath just what they were missing after his departure from the band the album marks Osbourne’s second attempt at a solo career and it was exceptionally successful.

Iconic tracks like Crazy Train and Mr Crowley gave this album a launchpad to greatness. (more…)


Grab the corpse paint, stretch those vocal cords and get ready to scream into the night along with this week’s Black Metal Thursdays

This week we’re taking a look at Satyricon, another band from Norway who have bounced back onto  the scene this year with their latest self-tit;ed disc.

As another weekend draws itself wearily to a close we would like to draw your attention to another undisputed classic, this time in the form of Iron Maiden‘s epic 1982 album “The Number of the Beast“.

Dave chillin'As a compulsive CD collector and a music fan of pretty wide taste I’m occasionally asked questions by people wanting to start up their own collections, namely where to begin.

With millions of albums out there people don’t know where to start so here’s my attempt at a starting point, with 10 albums that the fledgling metalhead must have in their collection. (more…)

From front to back: Trucker Diablo, Fallen Red and Metalize This' David Smith

Here at Metalize This we have developed a deep love for the music of Northern Irish Juggernaut Trucker Diablo and last Friday we were lucky enough to grab a quick chat with the guys before they played their first headline date over here in England.

This reporter, however, was ever so slightly disappointed not to see the Trucker’s signature vehicle (from these photos) rolling through the streets of Newcastle. (more…)
