‘Metal Power I to V’ : the unholy grail of heavy metal from the Lowlands
Pt78 Records proudly presents a compilation of the complete ‘Metal Power’ series that was released between 1983 and 1985 on Paludium Records / Iceman Records. The initial set existed of 5 vinyl EP’s that each housed 4 (by then) talented bands from the Eighties Dutch (and Belgian) hardrock and heavy metal scene.
Not many of the bands that are represented on this re-release stood the test of time. Most of them actually dissolved after their contribution to the ‘Metal Power’ series. Therefore ‘Metal Power’ was the only tangible evidence of their existence, which makes this re-release a real treat for old school headbangers as for generations to come.
‘Metal Power’ was created and released by guitarist Tiny ‘Iceman’ van Stiphout, who was a member in the Dutch cult band Back Out back in the days. You can enjoy his contributions on ‘Metal Power I’ as well as on the ‘Metal Power III’ EP, both on disc I of the re-release.
It is rumored not many metal aficionado’s own the entire ‘Metal Power I to V’ series. Nowadays originals are individually sold for ridiculous prices on record fairs and websites such as Discogs. What will be released is the official re-release of the unholy grail of heavy metal from The Lowlands for an affordable price.
The double cd will be released on 18 October 2019.
