Macbeth (GER)

The band was founded in 1985 in Erfurt. She was one of the first heavy metal bands in the former GDR. Also, the East was already detected by the global metal shaft and MACBETH was the right time at the right place. First, even as four, came in the fall of another guitarist to do so. It appeared the first time without even on the infamous game permission. Shortly after the band changed the classification of the singer. With Wittenburg they found a charismatic frontman, who contributed to the success of the band. The band toured like crazy and the visiting supporters already prepared the authorities the first headache.

Bands
Re-Animator

Yorkshire Thrashers Re-Animator managed to cruise the short-lived UK Thrash wave on the back of debut six-track mini-album, 1989's 'Deny Reality', issued through Music For Nations subsidiary Under One Flag. The group, having scored their deal with a two song demo cut at Animal Tracks Studios in Hull during March 1988, comprised lead vocalist / rhythm guitarist Kev Ingleson, guitarist Mike "Dis-Able" Abel, bassist John Hanson and drummer Mark Mitchell.

These tracks were laid down with a session singer, Tony Calvert of Welsh Thrashers Tortoise Corpse. On the live front, Re-Animator toured as support to Exodus, Acid Reign and Nuclear Assault. The band was managed initially by Music For Nations owner Martin Hooker then Nuclear Assault manager Paul Loasby. 1990's 'Condemned To Reality' bolstered their reputation but Re-Animator then undertook a severe left turn in their brand of music adopting then in vogue Funk for third album, 1991's 'Laughing'. Having gathered fans with their previous two albums, Re-Animator's liberal us of horn sections, odes to Laurel and Hardy, an unaccredited acapella stab at Monty Python's 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' and even a dash of Reggae did not serve them well.
