Metal Files H - Q



Found in the dark, damp, vermin-infested basement of the Metal Asylum you will find the Metal Files.

These files serve as a documentation of our patients both past and present, and a reference guide that provides information on the most important and well known headbangers who have been in our care - what many would consider essential Heavy Metal/Hard Rock releases by those artists. This page also includes lesser known or maybe underrated albums by artists who maybe only had a limited career, but at some point made their mark nonetheless.

Here in these files you will find the artists name, album titles, track listings, the year of its release, genre, and other recommendations of that artist. Refer back to this page as our doors are always open, and additions will be made from time to time.
