In this installment we have an ad for Attic's 1984 Metal for Breakfast compilation:
The guy on the cover has a slight facial resemblance to Sean Penn--due to his facial expression, this dude may in fact be a hard rockin' Canadian version of Jeff Spicoli.
As was typical for the metal compilations of larger labels, there's some more commercially palatable/hard rock stuff added. Still, quite a solid tracklist. I should mention that the Blotto song is a complete parody tune done by a non-metal band, but is still heavier than some of the other tracks.
In 1986, Attic released a follow-up compilation, called--what else--Metal for Lunch:
Based on the rings, hair, and perfect dazed demeanor, this appears to be the same fellow from before, except portlier. I guess a 2 year diet of ball bearings is quite fattening.
The tracklist largely follows the same pattern, although there's a farther reach for commercial viability with Aerosmith and Kim "I am a Wild Party" Mitchell's "Go for Soda," which are indefensible inclusions on a metal compilation. As before, there's one song that's noticeably heavier and darker than the rest.
On Metal for Breakfast, it was Mercyful Fate; here, Razor lays in wait at the end of the album, ready to give any unsuspecting thrash-ignorant rockers a serious case of indigestion.
Sadly, there appears to be no Metal for Dinner, and thus, this particular saga of endearingly cheesy album art comes to an end.
