Sparked by "avrlabel" and others.

The only band I know of is "Thunderway" - allegedly a Scorpions/Dokken style Heavy Metal band. I heard one song and it was really polished and "radio" sounding.

A friend in NYC emigrated here about 10 years ago talks about "SEPULTURA" "METALLICA" and "SLAYER" carved into the bricks in the wall at school. Also about wearing shades, spikes, leather jackets, fingerless gloves and "flat-top hairdos" - because "it is too dusty in Albania for long hair."

you Eastern Europeans know any other Albanian bands or have recordings thereof?

No man.Im in Montenegro which is very close to Albania but havent heard for any bands from there.One of my best friend is Albanian and he tell me that only bands in Albania are some commercial clones of Linking Park.I have seen year ago on one Albanian television the report from the Wacken.That was very strange for me becouse that was very primitive country.Today that isnt like that and Montenegro where I live is most primitive country on Balkan.

I can only speak of second hand references. Thunderway was from the 80s.

Thunderway was Speed/Power Metal, abit in the vein of Helloween "Walls of Jericho" and not much "radio sounding" I must say.
