||EXCLUSIVE THE UNKNOWN BAND WHO INFLUENCED METALLICA AIRS ON MetalTalk RADIO
11th January 2017
The third edition of Steve Göldby Talks Metal on MetalTalk Radio on TotalRock aired on Wednesday 11th January 2017 at 4.00pm UK time and featured a highly interesting story about Metallica.
Old school UK Thrashers Nightlord released their third album, 'Reborn In Darkness', recently and they revealed on air how their very first demo tape led to one of the all-time great Metal classics being written.
Nightlord singer Jamie Thorne told us all about the background stories to some of the songs on 'Reborn In Darkness', while guitairst Ferenc Collins told us how Metallica's Lars Ulrich and his colleagues used Nightlord's demo as the inspiration for 'Enter Sandman'.
The show also featured the best in Heavy Metal including music from Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Trivium, The Doors, Whitesnake, Black Star Riders, Gunslinger and Motörhead, amongst many others.
Also featured was the very first UK radio airplay of Cellar Darling, the band created by former Eluveitie members Anna Murphy, Merlin Sutter and Ivo Henzi.

Ferenc Collins told us about the new Nightlord album late last year:
"The release of 'Reborn In Darkness' is the culmination of six years' hard work since our reformation in 2010. We've been holding off on releasing the album for what seems like an absolute age, because we wanted things to be done just right, and involving Chris Tsangarides in the recording process to achieve our aims of keeping the old-school sound has paid dividends. We feel this album has, 'Classic album' written all over it, and we're all incredibly proud of what we've achieved.
"But a lot has changed in the recording industry since our first album was recorded in 1990, and finding our feet in figuring out how to release the album without any management or label support was a bit of a challenge.
"Thanks to all our friends who have encouraged and advised us every step of the way - I know it's a cliché but without you this album would not have turned out the way it has."
