This version has no talk box but a heavy guitar riff instead. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Don't play the sample to hear it go check out the full song,because another song will be heard here in the sample. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

2 Shout at the Devil - Motley Crue

I like it more then the original. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

3 Alison Hell - Annihilator

First released on a demo of 1986 - Phantasmagoria - Metal_Treasure

4 Baphomet - Angel Witch

Very heavy for 1978. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

5 Human Insecticide - Annihilator

Released as Lust of Death on the demo of 1985 - Welcome To Your Death; rerecorded, renamed and released in 1989 on their debut album. Annihilator demos are important because this band was actually the first one that played technical thrash metal (on demos of 1985-86) but many people consider only their debut album released 4 years later. I mean, Annihilator were the first. - Metal_Treasure
