70´s Proto-Metal… if you understand it as a sub-genre of the Progressive Rock universe, it´s no surprise that most lists that you will find in the net suggest that it was mainly an album orientated affair. But it pays dividends big time to dig a little deeper and soon you will find some of the most exciting 45s from that era. Located somewhere in the middle between Proto-Punk, Bonehead Crushers and the harder side of Glam Rock with a healthy dose of Black Sabbath or Τhe Stooges thrown in, 70´s Proto-Metal offers some of the most primal assaults ever laid down to 7inch. Need prove? Then sink the needle into the grooves of this essential compilation, turn up the volume to 666 and celebrate a Satan´s Party!!!
