Riot - Thunder Steel LP (Pale Thistle Grey Marble vinyl)
Carefully remixed and remastered for vinyl.
While other bands during the '80s were signing deals to major labels and abandoning their good sound for horrendous '80s pop, Riot decided to make its next album even better than the ones that preceded it. They added faster tempos and mighty-sounding riffs to their songs and creating sounds that not a lot of bands at the time even attempted. This album was truly ahead of its time when it was released and it's deserving of its title of one of the best power metal albums ever made.
