Marquis de Sade - "Somewhere up in the Mountains" [1981]

Artist: Marquis de Sade
Title: Somewhere Up In The Mountains
Country: UK
Release date: 1981

Track List:
  1. Somewhere Up In The Mountains
  2. Black Angel 
And finally, a true gem of the NWOBHM scene that, like many other obscure singles from that era, I've discovered via the Vibrations of Doom archive. Marquis de Sade, a band with awesome name featuring members of Angel Witch and Sanctus in their lineup, existed from 1979 to 1981 and never got much publicity, but managed to release one of my favourite melodic metal/hard rock 7''s.

AFAIK it was re-released in 2012 along with their earlier demo, but I haven't listened to it yet. Anyway, here's the original 1981 version. Enjoy:
