Strike While The Iron's Hot (CD)
The fourth entry in Heaven & Hell's Lost Relics reissue series, Strike While the Iron's Hot is a comprehensive anthology of early recordings by New York heavy metal band Blacksmith. One of the best of the "cult" bands in the American metal scene, Blacksmith never managed to achieve mainstream success, but those who found the band's albums or caught one of their explosive live performances knew they were fortunate to have discovered one of metal's best kept secrets. Their image might have been inspired by early Motley Crue, but Blacksmith's powerful music was firmly rooted in the iconic metal sounds of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, The Rods and Motorhead. In their early incarnation (with female vocalist Heidi Black), the band's wild energy and "metal for metal's sake" attitude recalled the best of the NWOBHM bands, like the bastard offspring of early Iron Maiden and Grim Reaper, especially on metal anthems "Rock Hard" and "Louder Than Hell." As memorable as those early Blacksmith songs are, it's the band's second incarnation that really stands out. The band was obviously energized by the emerging thrash metal sound, but beyond the faster riffs the overall songwriting is better, and new vocalist Malcolm "Mania" Lovegrove brought more power and range to the band's sound. This version of Blacksmith had more in common with early Metallica, Armored Saint and Vicious Rumors.
