  1. In the late 70s, early 80s, Heavy Metal was enjoying a resurgence in Britain, with British Musicians taking up Instruments and forming Bands all across the country.

    Musically, NWOBHM took the likes of early Hard Rock and Metal artists, such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and AC DC, and fused it with the energy of Punk music.

    NWOBHM music was fast, heavy and mighty. They also took elements from Progressive Rock as well, often creating Long prog metal songs.

    Lyrically, They were rooted in Rebellion and Fantasy.

    Some notable bands around the time included Iron Maiden, Saxon, Girlschool, Diamond Head, Venom and Def Leppard.

    Most of the bands fell into obscurity, with some exceptions

    Here are some classic NWOBHM tunes. Enjoy :)
