RidingEasy Records and Permanent Records have teamed up for a brand new compilation series called Scrap Metal: Excavated Heavy Metal From the Era of Excess. The series aims to highlight heavy metal artists and tracks from the late '70s and '80s that simply got lost over time. Scrap Metal, Volume 1 is due out November 12 and you can check out Rapid Tears' 1981 track "Headbang" below.
"Many of these singles are self-released and were thus limited to a small run of copies," said the Scrap Metal curators. "Those that remain are hoarded by collectors and sold for exorbitant amounts. We’ve collected the best of the best for you here. As with Brown Acid, all of these tracks are licensed legitimately and the artists all get paid. Because it’s the right thing to do."
