The Dungeons Are Calling is an EP by the American heavy metal band Savatage, released in 1984 on Combat Records. Though the EP was not released until 1984, most of the songs featured on it and the debut album, Sirens, had been in the band set list since 1979, and are part of the Live in Clearwater and City Beneath the Surface EPs. The Dungeons Are Calling is a loosely based concept album and the title track, contrary to popular belief, is not about Hell or torture, but about the horrors of drug use. The song used many metaphors, which have been sometimes misunderstood

Malokarpatan refer to their own music as old school rural Slovak black metal, and merge their already rustic riffing with Slovakian folk elements; the album even opens with the sound of a Jew’s Harp being played alongside the happy noises of what’s presumably a Slovak cow, before a spoken word intro leads into the first (and absolutely ripping) complete song.

Blitz - Voice of a Generation

This album is head and shoulders above any other "Oi" music. Probably because the band was a true combo of skins and old-school punks who actually decried the violence of the streets even as they painted a pretty brutal picture of it. Musically and lyrically, Blitz manages to rise above the inane, non-constructive retardation of the oi scene.

Carmody - messengers of love

Carmody were an Italian minimal wave group who formed in Torino in 1981. Typical of underground synthesizer-driven acts from that era, the group's music combined sparse, cold electronic rhythms with vocals expressing feelings of longing and isolation. Originally a duo consisting of Alberto Ramella and Andrea Lesmo (both former members of Teknospray), they expanded to a trio with the addition of guitarist Max Casacci. The band only recorded three demo tapes between 1981 and 1985 before disbanding; Lesmo later joined Celtic rock group LabGraal in the '90s, while Casacci formed electronic rock group Subsonica and established a label and recording studio called Casasonica. In 2009, German label Anna Logue Records released A Better Spider, a CD compilation of the group's material, and their first proper release. Numerous Carmody tracks subsequently appeared on '80s new wave/minimal synth compilations, and Mannequin released Sleep on Mirrors: The 1981-1985 Tapes, the group's first vinyl release, in 2015.
