Triarchy - "Save the Khan" [1979]

Artist: Triarchy
Title: Save The Khan
Country: UK
Release date: 1979

Track List:
  1. Save The Khan
  2. Juliet's Tomb 
Another underservedly forgotten NWOBHM band, Triarchy were formed in 1972 but released their debut single only in 1979. As you can guess from their name, they were a trio (but not a so-called "power trio", because they actively used synthesizers in addition to the standard lineup of guitar, bass and drums).

The "Save The Khan" 7'' got a quite disparaging review on, whose author found it boring, but that's not my impression at all. Maybe Triarchy indeed weren't the most skilled musicians in the NWOBHM scene, but this single is pretty catchy and definitely not boring, unlike many other obscure metal releases from the 80s:
