Saw all these bands in the early 80's...Used to see Metalica play house parties before anyone knew who they were. Saw Megadeths first show in LA and Dave Mustaine spent the first 30 minutes complaining about Metalica kicking him out.
I got into the LA Punk scene around 79 and there was some cross over between the punk and speed/death metal bands since we all hated the hair bands like RATT etc. It was a cool time to grow up in Los Angeles....
Wacken's my summer holiday, almost a week of metal madness. It's also one of the very few festivals where I'm not really working (just taking notes for www.metalheads.be), which means that I get to partake of alcoholic beverages as well
Earache has released several of those. I personally bought Carcass's Heart work, but there are several others available on Bandcamp (Entombed, At the Gates, Morbid Angel, ...)
Edit: this made me go back to Bandcamp, just bought the FDR edition of "Sleep's Holy Mountain" as well
