  1. Sodom!! I personally appreciate your efforts to keep the early metal thriving on the radio !!hopefully these early bands will get some of their older stuff out there, remastered (although i feel like the raw/underground sound is what attracted me) and the younger generation will get a chance to appreciate how important this music was to the scene
