Hello there Metalhead!

And welcome to the Boneyard Metal: 80's Metal blog.


This blog is dedicated to Metal or Metal related music that was recorded during the 1980's. You will find bands from all over the world and as much as possible of Metal styles that was done during that era. You may find the more known bands and their releases, but also plenty of unknown and rare material.


The main goal of this blog is to spread the word about Metal music that was recorded, and we stress the word recorded, during the 1980's, many albums were finaly released after years and sometimes decades after it was recorded in the 80's.

This is meant to for the more experienced Metalhead who seeks for more material of a band or information, but also share knowledge within the blog. Not only the more seasoned Metalhead is welcome on the blog, but also the one who is starting the journey of getting the most wonderful music on Earth!


(1) Copyrights

We do not claim any copyright of the materials that are contained in this blog, this lies towards the bands, artists, and record companies. This even includes album art that were made by the posters on this blog to give a release a face when an official cover art is missing, or making a compilation. The copyrights are with the bands or record companies or their successors.

(2) Bragging Rights

Also we do not claim that any album that is posted on this blog was ripped by us, even in the instances they were ripped by us. We do not own the artistic work of the bands or artists. Thus the material offered here, were ripped by the posters, or found on the Internet through sharing sites like blogs, forums, news groups, or even given to us by bands. So, no bragging rights here.

(3) Sound Quality

The minimum sound quality in terms of bitrates is 128 kbps for all our MP3 posts. We can not guarantee that all of our posts are of high quality, this depends on how a ripper ripped his or her own recording or album. Even a 320 kbps is not a seal of approval for the sound quality, at times an old 128 kbps rip sound better then a recent 320 kbps rip. It is all about how it is ripped.

I just wanted to say how cool this site is, and It is serving its original goal for sure. I found a lot of the music i had on LP in the 80's and have been looking for in any other format ever since.

Thank You!

(...I tried to send this through the "share" option that was on the blog, but could not find it anymore, so I posted it here, hope you still get it.)

...darkest greetings Lord Bones, just wished to share with you an album that it´s not possible to get, unless it is purchased... ..well we finally had to purchase it, due to it´s unavailability, it is a death metal classic from the mid 80´s French "cult" act, MUTILATED - IN MEMORIAM (Demo Compilation) 2017 DIGIPACK 2CD RE-ISSUE..... ....it includes al of Michel "Nonos" Dumas projects, from a remixed version of 1987 Mutilator´s Omens Of Dark Fate / Mutilated´s both complete 88/91 demos / the 1993 unreleased 7" EP and the Abyssals demos, plus a bonus CD of live & reh´s, mostly audience, but still worth having in the vault... ..this is recorded straight from the CD we purchased on FLAC / Mp3 320... ..we are sending both links... ..our purpose is just to share it, since it is NOT in the system at all, and whomever has purchased it, seem not to be wanting to share it or enter it unto the system.... ..if you publish this or not, it is all up to you, once the electronic share is placed in your hands, it belongs to you, so it is all up to you to post it or not, we don´t mind, so if you find it appropriate for the site, in regards to content and quality, of course you may publish it, or you may at some point in the future run into someone who wants / needs it, so is good that you guys have it, cheerz & darkest hails..!!
