Yet another thread for non-punk genres.

I know Pentagram and Budgie but Night Sun was new to me, cheers. (Damn Night Sun is heavy as fuck, in the 70's sense rather than the extreme metal sense). Budgie's singer is a little weird, he's tiny and geeky and a born again christian...

Ye, just had to link my favourite Pentagram face melter as it's one of their demos from the 70s. Burke's voice took me to another world when I first heard Breadfan and started listening to Budgie, almost a shame to get used to it. I've seen both bands live. :calavcalav:

Another favourite of mine is Judas Priest's debut album. Way more bluesy and in line with Black Sabbath than any of their later stuff:



Bloodrock is decent too:

Probably the scariest acoustic album ever.



Edit: Re Judas Priest, I never liked their first album, they were still finding their sound back then. They kind of ditched all the blues influence after that, creating the modern heavy metal sound in the process with the twin guitars etc. Wouldn't be any Maiden or Slayer without Priest. Sad Wings of Destiny was a landmark album, Sin After Sin contained the devastating "Dissident Aggressor", then there was the power ballad "Beyond the Realms of Death" on Stained Class... their 80s stuff was mostly crap then when they were looking like dinosaurs they came up with their last good album "Painkiller" as a kind of response to Metallica and Slayer. Their "Some Girls" if you like.

Some uploads say 1969 for Crank but either way this is a great one that didn't surface until the 90s, as was the case with many a recording:
