This Compilation Rounds Up 20+ Lesser-Known Sunset Strip Heavy Metal Bands

Plus a few you may very well know.

Bound For Hell

If you've ever really wanted to dig deep into the early L.A. rock scene, then you're going to dig the Bound For Hell compilation. The compilation feature 21 tracks that best represent the scene, from well-known artists like Armored Saint and Lizzy Borden to a lot of really interesting deep cuts. Purveyors of the compilation Numero Group describe Bound For Hell as such:

"Heavy metal? Glam? Hard rock? Make your own fuckin' call, you poser. We're not gonna do it for you. Bound for Hell is early '80s L.A. rock as it actually was: a California cataclysm of drunk and horny headbangers, dressed in sharp, shiny, leather androgyny and fire, kicking crowds in the teeth to clear the way to that one big shot.

"Featuring 21 tracks by 21 of the Sunset Strip's most razor-sharp heathens. Available as a 2LP box set with an ephemera-stuffed gatefold and 144-page hardbound book, or a sheer savage CD Wallet, with a 12-panel double-sided poster for those denizens of the compact disc. Drumsticks burned. Hands were severed. Faces bled. Heavy was HELL for a half decade and it was a long, long way down."
