n.: Underknown, underappreciated early (founded ~early 70s) German metal band, who dabbled in elements of power and thrash metal long before either subgenre was actually around. Also about ten times harder than Black Sabbath ever has been. Noteable mainly for the incredible guitarwork of Wolf Hoffmann and the inhuman, uncannily appealing screeching of Udo Dirkschneider.
Classic songs: Balls to the Wall, Restless and Wild, Head Over Heels, Russian Roulette, Dogs On Leads, Metal Heart, Son of a Bitch, Wrong is Right, Fast as a Shark
