"I was born on these streets, years ago/I was the king of the neighborhood," sings vocalist Tony Moore during "Bloodstreets." Such a line probably revealed the sentiment of guitarist Mark Reale perfectly, and it also encapsulates the mood of Thundersteel. A comeback album after several years of inactivity, this 1988 album is an unheralded classic…

Condition Critical, Quiet Riot's follow-up to their number one, multi-million-selling commercial breakthrough Metal Health, is nearly identical to its predecessor. Not only do they repeat the hard-driving pop-metal hybrid to the last detail, they even throw in another Slade cover. Like on Metal Health, the Slade cover on Condition Critical ("Mama Weer All Crazee Now") is the finest moment on the record – it's the only time the riffs have a solid hook and the melody is memorable. However, the rest of the record is well produced and sounds good, even if the quality of the songs is somewhat poor.

Whenever you read the biographies of 80s metal bands – given the odd exception, obviously – you are left thinking, “damn, you grunge.” Metal Church’s one reads like most. Massive buzz to start with, popular couple of albums, everyone leaves to go to “other projects” in the 90s, and then they reform in the noughties. You can usually add in the return of a “classic” vocalist too, and later releases should always include phrases like “return to our roots” in interviews.

Virtual XI is the eleventh studio album by English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on 23 March 1998. This would be the second and final studio album to feature Blaze Bayley, as he was dismissed from Iron Maiden following a February 1999 announcement that Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith, who left in 1993 and 1990 respectively, would be returning to the line-up. Virtual XI's title is tied in with two extra-musical events: the release of the band's computer game, Ed Hunter, and the fact that the 1998 FIFA World Cup would be taking place in June of that year. Harris explains, "We figure our fans are pretty much the same as we are, with pretty much the same interests, so we thought, 'It's World Cup year in '98.

2003's Dance of Death marked the triumphant return of old-school Iron Maiden. Gone were the murky, over-produced set pieces that clogged 2000's Brave New World and in their place fell blistering slabs of Piece of Mind-era metal. That trend continues with their 14th full-length album, Matter of Life and Death, a more elaborate and meandering experience than Dance of Death, but a rewarding one for fans willing to indulge the group's occasional excess. At over 70 minutes, Matter of Life and Death is closer to 1988's woefully underrated Seventh Son of a Seventh Son than it is to Piece of Mind, but with far less keyboard tickling. Recorded live in the studio, epics like "Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg," "Brighter Than a Thousand Suns," and the brutal "Longest Day" – the whole record is a loosely-knit song cycle with war at its core – exhume prog rock complexity and discipline yet manage to bristle with the kind of small-club intensity usually reserved for acts half their age.

Had they not been undone by behind-the-scenes business bunglings of the tallest order, Tokyo Blade might have joined Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, and Saxon at the top of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal heap, instead of barely sniffing at their heels. The Wilshire-based quintet certainly possessed the raw talent and the actual musical chops; their self-titled debut from 1983 was much better produced than most independent NWOBHM albums, and even their rising sun-themed iconography was particularly well conceived and portrayed to striking effect on said album's cover (not to mention their trousers!).
