The Heavy Metal Box
« on: October 11, 2007, 20:40:54 PM »
JUST TO CLARIFY: AS STATED IN THE EMAIL, THIS COMP IS FOR A 12 TRACK SAMPLER CD AND NOT THE BOX SET!


>>Quiz will go live this coming Saturday<<


Rhino Entertainment will release The Heavy Metal Box on October 2nd. There's plenty of assets in LOTs of great
photos, cover art, press release and streaming video trailer.

Heavy metal is not for the faint of heart. The songs don't want you to
dance, shake, spin, or jump. They insist that you bang your head. Forget
nuances or subtlety, heavy metal's main concern is kicking your ass. Rhino
dives into the mosh pit with a four-disc collection of musical wickedness
that packs more fire and brimstone than an Aleister Crowley barbeque.   The
set will be offered in limited edition packing that resembles an amplifier.
In a nod to Spinal Tap-whose song "Big Bottom" is included in the set-the
faux-amp box features an authentic, turn-able Marshall knob allowing you to
literally turn it up to 11.  Arranged chronologically, the compilation
gathers 70 choice selections from various record labels tracing the
evolution of metal during its first golden age between 1968 and 1991. The
Heavy Metal Box presents more than five hours of blistering fury guaranteed
to send devil horn salutes in the air.

The Heavy Metal Box invokes some of metal's biggest names with Alice
Cooper's "Billion Dollar Babies"; Black Sabbath's "Neon Knights"; "Highway
Star" by "the loudest group in the world," Deep Purple; Iron Maiden's "The
Phantom Of The Opera" with singer Paul Di'Anno and "The Number Of The Beast"
with singer Bruce thingyinson; Judas Priest's "The Ripper" and "You've Got
Another Thing Comin'"; Metallica's "Whiplash" and uber-doom-ballad "One";
Megadeth's searing political statement "Peace Sells"; Slayer's soul crushing
"South of Heaven"; and Pantera's marriage of metal and hardcore on "Cowboys
From Hell." The boxed set also includes songs by Ted Nugent, Kiss, W.A.S.P.,
Diamond Head, Venom, Living Colour, and a pair of tracks featuring
leather-lunged Lemmy Kilmister who appears on Hawkwind's "Lost Johnny" and
Motorhead's "Ace of Spades."

I agree!  O0

Mind you, I suspect Iron Butterfly - who described themselves as a psychedelic soul band, would be askance at kicking off this collection.
