Matt Johnsen proclaimed:
Diamond Head - Lightning to the Nations. The best NWOBHM album.
I finally got into Angel Witch and a few other NWOBHM bands in recent years, but I could not convince myself to dig DH even though I like Metallica's covers of their material.
I don't see this is possible :) Metallica's covers are great, though. I wouldn't say they're better than the originals, but they function as excellent Metallica tracks. Am I Evil is my least fave of the songs Metallica covered.
"Helpless" was my favorite. I loved Kirk's solo in "Am I Evil". Their covers was as good as Diamond Head original, not better. Metallica was great at doing outstanding covers up through 1991.

Alcatrazz - No Parole for Rock 'n Roll. Yngwie's finest hour.
I do not know if you have ever been more wrong. Marching Out is obviously his best work by far.
Marching Out is cool, although it has too many instrumentals.
Sure you're not thinking of Rising Force? That one had only two songs with lyrics. Marching Out has 3 short instrumentals.
