1. Scots; A magic spell; a witch's trick.

TDATS 25 features Scottish bands. A selection of The Pictish nation's finest vintage rock practitioners. Iron Claw shouldn't be too much of a mystery by now, they were a band who seems to have shown great promise, picking up on the Sabbath sound very early and matching it in places with undeniable talent, unfortunatley luck was not on their side and they have only recently had an official release, after years of lurking in bootleg limbo. Bodkin play some great dark prog and Iron Virgin peddled some good glam with decent heaviness (and a hilarious image). Holocaust are here as a late entry, I was looking for late-70s NWOBHM and really had a tough time finding Scottish examples, until I found Holocaust, who formed in 1977. The band on track 11 were a pop group who on occasion delved into heavier territory and "Í've been around too long" is a great track. Many thanks to the various knowledgable people at stonerrock.com, rateyourmusic.com, hellridemusic.com and progarchives.com for their insight which has helped me research these bands.

Part 5 of my compilation series, selected tracks from some of my favourite 70s heavy obscure bands. Charlee starts the show with their excellent riffing, Nahuatl from Mexico offer up some latin sabbathism and Writing on the Wall throw in a mind fuck of a bad trip which is incredibly heavy for 1969. Asterix were the original incarnation of Lucifer's Friend!
