666th Post

This is my 666th post on this blog. I do not believe in the Devil, angels or demons. God gave man free will. Evil in the world is due to man, not supernatural forces. All that said, the concept (or fear?) of the Devil has a decades-long association with the music of my tween and early teen years, heavy metal:

This seemed like a good place to start:

Judas Priest: “Sad Wings of Destiny” (1976) was not my fave back when I was in junior high, that would be “British Steel”, but this is probably their best from those old years. What’s up with “Island of Domination”? Is that an s/m anthem?:
Cirith Ungol: “Frost and Fire” (1981). I like their second album, King of the Dead,  more but I have posted it so many times I wanted to let you peep something else:
I was never a huge fan of Dio, but so many of my friends were this stuff it is hard to forget. This is from 1983:
A Black Sabbath 2fer (1970 and 71):
Tank’s “Filth Hounds of Hades” (1982) is probably my favorite metal album ever, simply due to the memories of youth that it evokes:
Slayer’s “Chemical Warfare” (1984) is an early track and still one of my faves. Reminds me of my brother. He had this on wax and used to get so pissed off when I played it without his permission, as little bro’s do…RIP…
