Master of Puppets - Metallica
Rust In Peace - Megadeth
Arise - Sepultura
Seasons in the Abyss - Slayer
Painkiller - Judas Priest
Youll have a pretty good idea of 80's metal right there!
Arise is a fantastic album, I've been into Sepultura for quite some time now.
Igor Cavalera is a fnatastic drummer.
anybody have some pictures of his kit, for the online community that is drummerworld?
