Basque autonomists and one of the most important groups of european punk-rock. Politically left and keen on many labor and social movements from all over the world, Kortatu had The Clash as their main musical influence and were frequently singing in basque language (a language actually not intimate to classic western rock rhythms and musical styles).
Aupa Euskadi!!


Riot – Thundersteel (1988)

01. Thundersteel – 03:49 – !!!!

08. Run for Your Life – 04:08 – !!!!
09. Buried Alive (Tell Tale Heart) – 08:55 – LMU – !!!!

Seeking a major commercial success, Riot make a U-turn from bluesy/hard rock influences to a straight power metal sound. Though Thundersteel never gave them the status they’d deserved, it is widely venerated as one of the best power/speed metal stuff that has ever recorded… No power metal band before or after has managed to reach such an excellence in terms of fury and passion.
Their shift from a great hard rock band to a sensational power metal stunner is among the most remarkable moments of US metal scene of the 80s.
