The Metal Asylum

The Metal Asylum Playlist: 5/26/12

Saturday, May 26


It’s the Metal Asylum BRITISH INVASION! Today’s show is dedicated to my amazing dad, Gerry Worthington, who was the Metal Asylum’s #1 fan, and is sorely missed. Born and raised in Ringwood (Hampshire), England, he would have appreciated the 100% Blue Blood English Metal playlist I put together in his honor.

I’m sure you lot are familiar with the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) during the late ’70s and early ’80s, but you might not be aware of the myriad kick-ass hardcore, death metal, black metal and proto-industrial metal bands that herald from Dear Old Blighty. From Birmingham to London to Stoke-on-Trent, I’ve got it covered.

So, bottoms up, enjoy the tunes, and as my dad would say: “OFF WE GO!”
