Court in the Act is amazing. We had an original pressing from '83 a few years ago, kept in a ground floor storage unit, along with about half of my Dad's metal collection. And along with the rest of that collection, it was trashed when the place flooded. Bought the re-issue for my Dad's birthday last year.

Can't believe this thread hasn't seen more action.

I think I just cried a little inside. That is an awful thing to happen...

My Dad actually cried. That storage unit was just about his entire life from the age of 10, to about 45, in musical form; and I hate to think of the monetary value of the records he had, as well as all the live videos and stuff. He's steadily rebuilding his collection though, despite the fact its costing him far more than it did the first time round.

I've actually noticed that. A ****ing shame, you had some top band threads that only have about 2 pages.

If life was fair this thread would have more posts than the Deathcore thread.

I've totally neglected this band. And since I'm generally lacking in trad. metal releases altogether, this thread inspired me to grab Court in the Act.

I won't have time to listen to it for a while, but I'll make sure I get to it tonight.

^ You won't regret it.

I had Court In The Act on in the car on the way to my job interview today. Put me in a brilliant mood, and managed to offset the tripe they made me do in the interview itself.

Listening to it now. The version I got was the remaster, although it was not labeled as such.

The mastering on this version sucks. The drums dominate everything, and I can barely hear the riffs or the vocals. And since those are the main things I care about, it's kinda hard for me to get into this. It doesn't help that the guitars have the mids scooped.

What I can hear of the riffage is pretty good, though. I'll try to find the original and see if there's an improvement.

I am very familiar with NWOBHM, but I have to admit that I've never heard of Satan. Where were they from??

I had that as my ring tone for a very long time. Breaking Free is one of my all time favorite metal tunes.

They played London the other day with the original 'Court in the Act' line-up, Witchfynde, Dark Forest (the good uk one) and Eliminator (also the good uk one)

If it wasn't for the fact Sosltice and Procession was the same night (and I could have afforded to go ) I'd have probably considered it.
