Hi all, I have always been a fan of Poison Idea; They were / are metal influenced, but they are good musicians. Especially Feel The Darkness (1990, Full album), is of course a classic; a cult album.

Now I am looking for more of these melodic punk-metal cult albums like Poison Idea's album above. Who can hint me on similar cult albums?

Hi, do you know the Japanese bands like Death Side and Paintbox?

Death Side was one of the absolute classic hardcore punk bands in Japan that started the whole Burning Spirits wave along with bands like Tetsu Arrey (鉄アレイ). I bet you'll like their Bet On The Possibility LP, at least that's what comes close to me as a classic record similar to Poison Idea.

Paintbox came on later, featuring the legendary Death Side guitarist Chelsea (RIP) and some other amazing musicians. Their sound was a wild mix of Japanese Burning Spirits hardcore punk, hard rock, 70's psychedelia and all kind of weird stuff.

They also have a tribute to Poison Idea that sounds like that:
