Obscure Metal - AIRBORNE - In United Kingdom [7" EP] (1983)


I picked this up at random. I need a quick fix to write something I love - Heavy Metal. So, I googled and ended up with this band, AIRBORNE (from Sweden) out of so many other unknown bands in the 80s. The name strikes me simply because there is currently another band with the same name, albeit spelled differently. The other band is AIRBOURNE, the Australian pub-rock who already made it big in the international scene.

What we have here is an EP released in 1983 from a Swedish band. Honestly, I have no expectation. In this moment of write up, the only other band I remember is Bathory but no mistake, Airborne is a classic Heavy Metal band. The only resemblance is the satanic overtone. Music-wise, the riffs bring back to the memory of those not-so-good Saxon songs; rockin', anthemic, looped but failed to stick. The vocal is tipical Motley Crue/Ratt wannabe, a better version of Tom Fischer's version of Heavy Metal in Cold Lake (Celtic Frost). Perhaps, they are the more rockier Mercyful Fate, where Airborne lacks of imagination.


3-track 7" EP of AIRBORNE released on the English label Clubland Records in 1983.
Recorded at Fair Deal Studios, London 17-18th August 1983. Engineerd by Alec Hawkins.
Cover by J.O. Runbom and photos by Janne G. Features drummer Stefan Axelsson of JACKWAVE.
AIRBORNE did several reunion gigs in 2010.
Mikael "Abbe" Sjöström - Vocals
Stefan Axelsson - Drums (Jackwave, Airborne, Transylvania, L-RÖ 500)
Christer "Chris" Andersson - Guitar
Jocke Schön - Guitar
Tommy Johnsson - Bass

1. Burn in Hell
2 .Lord Satan
3. Temple of Metal

I think this is interesting. Picking up obscure band at random. Hopefully I will find something worth digging out more - just like in the case of Camel, where I bought their cheap cassette at random and discovered one of the best progressive rock band ever.

Special thanks to this great blog for uploading all of the obscures. I will definitely go back to randomly pick more.

Please, reupload this EP (original file mp3 320 kbps rip). Link is down. Impossible to find it. It was shared in mp3 320 kbps like here, and in 192 kbps on torrent, but the torrents are died also. If cannot reupload, some chance to send file to this email: joaozincarai@zipmail.com.br?
