Hey guys, I recently discovered an '80s metal band called Witchfinder General and I must say they sounds great! They sounds a lot like early Sabbath. It is obvious that Sabbath is a major influence. You can feel their presence in their stuff. They are an early doom metal band. They only released two albums in the 1980s and one in '07. It's a shame they were never quite known. They are very underrated. I also found a band called Grim Reaper who was sadly not very known. I like these bands a lot and I enjoy listening to their stuff. It's great and I was just wondering if any of you guys out there know of any more bands in the '70s and '80s that never got the exposure that they deserve.

I loved Kreator when I was a young lad.
Extreme Aggression was a great early trash metal album, also loved Among The Living album by Anthrax.

I've really only heard of like 2 of the bands you all mentioned. Thanks loads guys. A lot of these bands really are awesome. I wonder why they were never big. I guess some were too Satanic?
