For the first round-up of 2012, we’ve got the new song from a reunited mega band, reissues from NWOBHM stalwarts and prog legends, plus a new album from the band who invented black metal.
It may seem odd to include a band who had hit singles and successful albums in this series. But Atomic Rooster have been all but forgotten over the past three decades. Time to redress the balance, and celebrate the Rooster booster in the latest in this Cult Heroes series. Check out all the other Cult Heroes.
Nightmare Records are offering an entire album – that’s 25 songs in all – for free download. It’s called Merry Metal Christmas, so it seems only fair on Christmas Day to make it not so much Track Of The Day, as Album Of The Day. Oh, and check out other freebies at www.classickrockmagazine.com/tag/track-of-the-day. See, there is a Santa –or do we mean Satan?!
