Deep Switch – Nine Inches of God 2CD


This is one of my favorite obscure NWOBHM albums, particularly because the entire album is fantastic from start to finish.  This album was reissued by Shadow Kingdom in 2010.  Long out of print, Shadow Kingdom recently discovered a box of these double CD sets.  I was lucky to snag some for my shop.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  Read below for details.


Release Date: September 14, 2010
Double CD
The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal in my opinion has basically 2 eras. The first era is from 1979 to 1981 which is considered the big boom of Heavy Metal. The 2nd era is from 1982 to 1986-ish. So taking us into the mid 80’s a band from the U.K. emerged called Deep Switch. They looked and sounded like no other band and that still holds true today. They never really took heavy metal too seriously, but that doesn’t mean their music wasn’t serious, because it was, although it was laced with a lot of humor. I think Deep Switch was more influenced by Monty Python than heavy metal. This is extremely unique and original material. Even if you’re not into obscure N.W.O.B.H.M., you should at least treat yourself to hearing this just for the experience. The release consists of 2 CDs, the first one being their classic album, while the 2nd disc is a collection of all their demos. They had a very short lived career, but a very long-winded tale of their history is written inside this massive booklet along with ton of band photos. This band is so original and unique I really couldn’t even point you to some other similar sounding bands.
