(Playlist) 1980:THE YEAR IN METAL - In 40 Minutes

Onto the 80s we go and heavy metal/hard rock was undeniably on the upswing. A bunch of young whippsnappers were nipping at the heels of the established giants, egging them onto heavier and better heights. So it's more than appropriate that our playlist oscilates between the NWOBHM and veteran camps throughout this head-shakingly good set of tracks.
