Notes:
– Maybe the NWOBHM band with the most line-up changes over the years!
– It is well documented that Blitzkrieg were one of the main influences of Metallica thus the cover they did on the “Creeping Death” EP
– Blitzkrieg appeared on several compilations, here are some of the most significant:
Lead Weight” (LP, Neat, 1981) with the track ‘Inferno’. This compilation was also released on CD by Sanctuary in 2002
The Neat Singles Collection Volume One” (2CD, Sanctuary, 2002) with ‘Buried Alive’ and ‘Blitzkrieg’ and of course in the classic “NWOBHM – ’79 Revisited” with ‘Blitzkrieg’ again
