    I am listening to Satan's COURT IN THE ACT right now. Awesome NWOBHM.

    Anyone else into the genre? If you need explanation of what bands are considered NWOBHM goto www.nwobhm.com

    Other faves Tokyo Blade, Persian Risk and Grim Reaper.

    You? ;)
  2. No thank you. :)

    Early Judas Priest rule!
  4. Diamond Head's "Behold the Beginning" is an awesome record. And yeah, I did get turned onto them because of Metallica, I admit it. I thought the best song on that record was "The Prince" and I used to think, "How cool would it be if Metallica covered THAT one?" And, as if I had commanded it, they did.. the B side of "Bread Fan."
    I have that NWOBHM double-CD set, but I haven't listened to it in a long time.

    The only band I really got in to from the NWOBHM was Maiden. Their first 2 albums are 2 of my ALL TIME favs albums!!!! THe albums w/Bruce were great too, but Paul D'Anno was awesome.
  8. Same as Nino. I actually prefer Maiden with Di'Anno. Dickinson's voice can get a bit cartoonish at times.
  9. The only NWOBHM band ive heard is maiden, but i don't know what to check out other than them.
  10. I'm pretty sure its

    New Wave of British Heavy Metal

    but i could be wrong

    New Wave of British Heavy Metal FYI

    Liege Lord...I heard one of their albums years ago, but unfortunately I didn't buy it. Been trying to find the CD ever since (it had a bird preying on a corpse on the cover, perhaps anybody knows the title).

    And I like Dickinson more than Di'Anno. No wonder things got better with Maiden since he's aboard again.

    Damn, I should take typing lessons :D
  12. Iron Maiden and Def Leppard are the only bands on that list that I know about...

    but on that list it says incubus.. but I´m guessing it´s not the Incubus that I´m thinking about...

    Don't know why it surprised me, but I confess I was surprised to see Toad,The Wet Sprocket on that list. Maybe I didn't listen to enough of their music. I unwittingly had called it grunge. Oh well.

    Anyway, that is an intersting and thorough list.

    That TOad The Wet Sprocket is different from the radio friendly band of the 90s.

    Liege Lord aren't NWOBHM as they were from Connecticut. But their first 2 LPs were great. Not sure what happened on Mater COntrol.
  18. I remember seeing a couple of videos by Grim Reaper on Beavis and Butthead.....classic TV moments....

    Oh man, Mama's Boys! Loved that band, they had a good heavy groove. Saw them in concert a few times. Three piece if I remember correctly. The guitarist used a bow on occasion.
