Stranger

Stranger was a young and hungry Bavarian Heavy Metal act. They were sort of like a low rent Helloween. Their debut album, The Bell, was released in 1985 on the Hot Blood label. Stranger favored a more traditional style of metal that, by '85, was obscured by thrash in Germany, so these guys didn't get much attention, but this album, while being a bit generic, is still a great deal of fun. You remember fun, right?

Have you heard Talon - Neutralized (1984)? That's another fun record that comes to mind in the same vein as this, Oz and Witch Cross. This blog is maybe my favorite place on the internet by the way. Thanks for all the great music!

cool shit here. I was looking them up and it would appear their second album was quite a stinker.
