Hey, Razör! As a relative newcomer to metal music, I was wondering if you could recommend some bands or albums to me. Lately, I've been listening to W.A.S.P. (mostly their newer stuff, which I really dig) as well as Accept. I had heard you talk about the latter on numerous occassions, both on the Hate-Bit Podcast and on your own show, and that got me interested. I also like Alice Cooper. So, with that brief intro, what would you recommend? Thanks, and keep doing what you're doing!

Definitely check out Lizzy Borden. They’re sort of a cross between W.A.S.P. and Iron Maiden. Dokken is a must, for that riff-driven melodic Heavy Metal a la Accept / Judas Priest. Steeler is another brilliant, speedy, guitar-driven German Metal band with sandpaper vocals. Would definitely recommend Scanner and Victory for that Accept vibe, as well. (Herman Frank, who only recently left Accept as second guitarist, has been in and out of Victory) Might also check out Leatherwolf

And stay tuned to the Metal Mythos, because many of the bands you’ve mentioned are going to be covered eventually.
