  • There's already a similar thread, focusing only NWOBHM. I created this for any subgenre (and because I'm addicted to obscure 7 inch singles).

    10 Warrior - Breakout
    09 Dutchess - Your Love / Dead And Gone
    08 Thor - Rockrise / Thor
    07 Dizziness - Take It Or Leave It / Playing With Fire
    06 Iona - Don't Cry For The Innocent / You Ain't A Lady
    05 Sektor Skandal - Don't Go To Church / Landscape [Not REALLY heavy metal, but the b-side is awesome].
    04 Angel Heart - Magic Touch / Crying Eyes
    03 Firebird - Change / Nightride
    02 Gotham city - Gotham City / Killer Angels
    01 Randy - Shadows Are Falling / The Beast [One of the best things ever recorded in the genre].

    And a small mention to Airlines's "Emilia / Storstadskyla", best AOR 7'' ever. :D


    What about you? Let's discuss a bit! (cheers1)

    7" records I used to play a lot and don't have anymore-

    Corrupted Morals - Chet EP
    Mercyful Fate - Black Funeral / Black Masses pic disc
    Nunfuckers - Dead On The Floor EP
    Ramones - Real Cool Time / Indian Giver
    Ramones - (double 7", gatefold) Chasing The Night/Howling At The Moon (Sha-La-La) + Street Fighting Man/ Smash You
    Satanic Rites - Live To Ride / Hit and Run (mine did not have picture sleeve, I read it had one?)
    Sex Pistols - Pretty Vacant / No Fun (Stooges cover, 6 minutes long on the B side)

    still got -
    D.O.G. (death of gods) - A World of One...Divided by All EP
    Raven & Udo - Born to Be Wild / Inquisitor pic disc

    Bought many 7" records made in the last 10 years, but most of the ones I did not sell and still own are from the 1970s and 1980s are just commercial rock.

    Completely agree Killtava, especially b side gives me the chill every time... So many to remember ofc ;)

    And, well, do we mean about singles we own only??? Then i would have to exclude half (maybe more) from my list :P
