Fil di Ferro -- Hurricanes (1986, Discotto Metal Productions, LP) -- Fil Di Ferro (1988, Dischi Noi records, LP) -- Rock Rock Rock (1992, Axix records, LP, CD and MC) -- It Will Be Passion (2004, Licantropus records) Hard Rock/HM. The band has many times announced and then postponed the reissues of their two LPs of the 80's. Fingernails -- Same (1989, LP on Cobra Records. Reissued as Hell'n'Back on Old metal records with some bonus tks). -- Destroy Western World (2008, CD on Old Metal records) Firehouse -- Same (1988, LP on Lost & Found Records) You can find it in italian fairs from 40 to 60 euro. -- Labyrinth (1994, CD on Arexong records) Heart of Steel records announced for 2010 a reissue with bonus tks (i don't know if the bonus will be taken from their first LP of 1988 or unreleased tracks from demos). From Milan. This band deserves a more thorough discussion: The mastermind Franco Caruso (born in 1968). Published in 1980 (he was only 12 years old!) his first 7" with his early band Macid (almost impossible to find, see letter M) then together with his brother Enzo formed Firehouse. In 1987 they recorded a split MC with White Sensation (a melodic metal band from Switzerland, four tks for both the bands). In 1988 they released this their self titled debut LP (on Lost & Found records, someone should add it on Metal Archives...). It includes the MC 4tks, a good work of melodic metal (if you like Giuffria/House of Lords..). In 1989 under the fake monicker of Special Guitars published a second LP (almost impossible to find, for more details see letter S). Then in 1994 published their second full lenght on CD only. Then the band split up, but Franco Caruso formed Arachnes (a well known prog metal band, seven CDs made). He was also involved in Darklight (gothic metal band, one CD made) and he also recorded two solo's CD (and he is also the author of some movie, fiction, cartoon and commercials spot for italian TV). Flight Charm -- Waiting White Lady (1988, on LM records, MC and LP, 500 copies made) Not so difficult to find (25/40 euro) The "reissue" is a bootleg on Hard'n'Heavy rarities vol. 11 together with Rychus Syn and Buster Brown. (review) From Venezia, melodic epic metal (if you like early Rainbow). A second LP was recorded in 1990, No More Flight (with a different line up and style) but never issued. Florence 99 -- Same (1990, LP, MC and CD on CGD records) For those who likes Hard/aor a la Treat/Stage Dolls etc. The CD is quite impossible to find, less than 20 (twenty!) copies were made around because the band had troubles with the label, all other copies on CDs were destroyed, so forget about it. I had 3 copies in the past (I sold one for 500 euros 4 years ago and one traded for some others rare records). It's one of the most wanted aor CDs in the world. Here I am with my copy ---> Fratelli Balestra -- Judy/Sogno d'arcobaleno (1984, 7" 45 rpm on CGM records) Formed by the three Balestra brothers (a roman trio of multi-instrumentalists). Very good melodic stuff in the vein of Journey/Foreigner (in Italy, under fakes monicker, they were very famous as authors of signature tunes of japanese cartoons as Jeeg, Teppei, Starzinger etc. to name a few). They were also active as cover band (Deep Purple, Uriah Heep) Free The Nation -- Same (1992, LP on La Prigione del Suono records). Produced by Luca Trabanelli (ex Hocculta) Milano based band, born as Bad Reputation (a cover band of Led zeppelin and Grand Funk Railroad). A very powerful album, full of hard rock songs. Furious Barking -- De-Industrialized (1991. mini LP on Goddam Church records) -- Theory of diversity (1992, but never published at that time, it's their second work, issued on CD in 2008 by Punishment18 records) Decent thrash metal band from Ascoli Piceno in the centre of Italy.
M.A.C.E. -- State Of Excitement (1989, LP on LM records) Easy to find (from 25 to 40 euro) Good power/thrash metal. Macid -- Milano sempre sarai/Contaminazione (1980, 7" on NAR records) Almost impossible to find. This was the first band of Caruso brothers (Firehouse, Special Guitars, Arachnes etc). Franco Caruso (guitar) was 12 years old at that time!!! A good example of Hard/metal with some punk influences in the voice lines. Mad Poltergeist -- Mad'n'Damn' (1989, mini LP on Metalnews records) It's becoming hard to find, 30/40 euro or more. (review) Good thrash metal band from Genova (for those who likes Holy Terror and Mekong Delta). Madhouse -- Klein Circus (1990, 7" 33rpm, split with Eversor, Kina and P. Chain, on Circus Reccords. it includes a poster) -- O.D.I.A.M.I. (1992, aka One day In A Mine, LP on Circus Records). Both not so hard to find. Good thrash metal/crossover band. Maline -- Same (1982, 12" ep, 3 tracks, on Sangy prod. private pressing) Sleeveless, only 300 copies made for promotional use. The vinyl comes in an anonymous white cardboard cover. Very hard to find. Marylin 44 -- Rock'n'Roll rebel/Don't Lie (1990, 7" on American Records, private pressing) almost impossible to find. Very good street/glam metal (for those who likes L. A. Guns, Bang Tango etc.) band members had an average age of fifteen! Marshall -- Magic diamonds (1990, LP on Metalnews) This LP is quite hard to find (from 60 euro up) Good heavy metal band from Napoli, split up in 1992. Reunited in 2001 (with a different line up), they recorded two CD in a good prog metal vein in 2004 and 2006. Alex Masi -- Fire In the rain (1987, LP on Metal Blade) -- Downtown Dreamers (1988, LP on Metal Blade) -- Attack of the Neon Sharks (1989, LP on Metal Blade) -- Vertical Invader (1990, LP on Metal Blade) After leaving Dark Lord and Italy, Alex Masi moved to Los Angeles where Sound Barrier became his backing band. Maskim -- Same (1991, LP on Carrefours records, reissued a year later on CD with 3 bonus tks by Zasko Lab) The vinyl is clear and transparent. Quite hard to find, 70/80 euro up. Another strange italian story for this roman based thrash metal band (founded in 1986). They signed a deal with Carrefours, a belgian label and published the LP for them. One year later italian label Zasko Lab reissued it on CD only with 3 bonus tks. It was more than a decent thrash metal band from Roma (don't believe to the nasty review made on Metal Archives!) Masterstroke -- Silence (1988/89? the year is not sure. LP on LM records) (@DaN: maybe this is the missing album in the catalogue of LM number 23/24? sorry, but i never saw a copy) I know that only 20 promo copies were made (because the band split up before releasing it officially). Anonymous white cover comes with copied lyricsheet, copied photo and tracklist. Almost impossible to find, if someone wants it i saw a link where it is for sale for 510 euro. The band was from Firenze and played speed metal. Maxx Dolls -- Same (1992, Magic Bus records mini-CD) A very hard to find CD nowadays. Founded in Brescia in 1988. In 1991 they won the Yamaha world contest playing live at the mythical Budokan in Tokyo. If you like Hanoi Rocks, Motley Crue etc.. Meat Puppets -- Gold/Look at yourself (1982, 7" on Drums records) -- Gold (1983, LP on Drums records, the inner sleeve includes all the lyrics ) Both hard to find. Decent Hard/Heavy from Torino. Megatherion -- BSM (2009, CD on ROAL sound international) Thrash metal band from Bologna. They recorded (but never released) an EP and some demos and after the split up (1988) two members of the band joined Extrema. Some months ago finally the former members published this CD. It contains six original tks, a live tk and a new song. Mesa -- Same (1980, LP on Chic records). Very hard to find but only for fanatics and completists. Good guitar sound for this hard/heavy rock band but the drums sounds like crappy disco music! The MI.S.S. -- Wrong Place, Wrong Time (1995, Lucretia Records, CD only) Street metal with some southern rock from this band founded in the middle of the 80's. This is their only album. Miss Daisy -- Pizza Connection (1989, LP on GWR Records, produced by "Fast" Eddie Clarke) Quite easy to find on LP. A few dozen promotional CD copies were made in the USA for college radios and press only. Born from the ashes of Mausen and Stiff (prime mover bands from Rome in the early 80's). Very good street metal. A reissue on CD is expected by the end of 2010/beginning of 2011 on Heart of Steel records. Momo Big Band -- All Over (1985, LP on Pentagramma) -- Today/You have changed my life (1989, 7" on Momo records, private pressing) Both the vinyls are hard to find, only for completist! Decent AOR/Rock band from Torino (they are still active as a cover band). Mondocane -- Project One (1990MC and LP on Metal Master) Born from the collaboration of Necrodeath and Schizo, it's quite hard to find. You can download it for free at their official myspace www. myspace. com/mondocane2 Monks -- Synapsis (1989, LP on Crime records) Not so hard to find, 25/30 euro if mint. Decent band from Udine, they played a mix of garage/hard rock and metal. Moon Of Steel -- Passions (1989, LP on Cult'n'Roses records) Not so hard to find (
