It might list it as 4:38 on the sleeve, but this version of Venom's "Black Metal" is closer to 3:10 in reality.

I remember getting this as a 17 year old HC Punk fan, a real eye opener at the time although really just a budget sampler. Many of these selections are probably regarded as well known classics by now.. This comp does show the foresight of the Metal Forces staff (& Shades shop) because if this had been compiled by Kerrang! back then it would probably have still featured a bunch of NWOBHM acts.. such was their dislike of anything too extreme sounding then(read their first reviews of Slayer, Venom, Voi Vod etc and they were still unsure of Metallica circa RTL.. although Metal Forces hated Hellhammer aswell!) at the time this was an immense introduction to newbies such as my self to the developing "Thrash" Metal scene

Venom's "black metal" is actually not properly a NEW VERSION but 1985 BBC recording

An astonishingly visionary compilation for its time. Every band on this compilation left their mark on metal, albeit to varying degrees

This is a classic thrash compilation from early days containing for the first and only time VENOM METALLICA and SLAYER on the same release. All of them favorite bands of mine at the time.The SPEED KILLS series would continue with great releases and was a great way to discover new bands along with the magazine METAL FORCES. Has a great natural flow. Would be great to own on cd.

Great album from start to finish; I has this on cassette and would probably have worn the tape out except I lost it in a hotel room! I found the album online years later, much to my delight.

This is worth getting for the Exciter track Riders From Darkness as well as Venom's remake of Black Metal, tracks that are unavailable anywhere else as far as I know.

Back in 1985, Metallica and Slayer were the "big names" of the bands on this compilation, with Exciter, Megadeth, Exodus and Venom right behind them. This simple compilation increased my record, tape (and a few years later, compact disc) collection of metal music many times over.

24 years later and untold millions of records sold by Metallica and Megadeth alone, this compilation stands as a testimonial to what was then the new genre of "speed metal"; those who would beome the successors to the metal gods of the past like Judas Priest. Even groups like Iron Maiden, still in the heights of creativity and popularity ( and one of my favorites) were soon to be left in the dust when Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer spawned their own New Wave Of Heavy Metal and expanded the metal genre. Without some of the bands on this compilation that expanded the metal horizons, metal might be dead.
