G.B.H.: The Punk Singles 1981-1984 (2002)

The influential, long-lived punk metal band G.B.H. rose to prominence in England during the early '80s when hardcore punk began inching toward heavy metal. Originally formed in 1979 in Birmingham, England, G.B.H. initially called itself Charged G.B.H. to differentiate itself from another band called G.B.H. The leather-clad, hair-spiked foursome began recording for the Clay label in the early '80s, releasing some singles before unleashing their influential debut album, City Baby Attacked by Rats, in 1982. City Baby's Revenge followed two years later in 1984, by which time the band had become one of the leading punk metal bands of the era. G.B.H. continued recording and releasing albums throughout the '80s, though their influence progressively waned as a new wave of bands such as Slayer emerged and pushed punk metal toward what became known as speed metal and, in turn, thrash. Despite its waning influence, G.B.H. soldiered on, recording new albums throughout the '90s and into the next millennium. By this point the band was often cited by both metal and punk bands as a huge influence, and a renewed interest in G.B.H.'s early recordings Jason Birchmeier

I'm getting the same trouble with Rapidshare. could you put the GBH singles part 1 on Megaupload?

madboy said...

Nagiants40 said...

Hey guys, I don't know whats happened but the files are working fine.. if you can provide me your emails I can send the link this way..


Toxxy said...

Both links works fine here on my comp and was easily downloaded. Nice with all these singles Nagi...HANX mate :)

Slobodan Burgher said...

it's working mighty fine with me. I think this may be due to Firefox problems as reported elsewhere in regard to both Rapidshare and Megaupload. Try using another browser or try another day - that usually works for me.

THANKS FOR THIS, Nagi. GBH rules o.k.!

madboy said...
