  NWOBHM – Groups at Last.fm
NWOBHM reacted against the artifice of contemporary pop, placing an emphasis on musicianship and amplification, the former trait setting it apart from punk.
NWOBHM was musically characterised by power chords, fast guitar solos and melodic, soaring vocals, with lyrical themes often, drawing inspiration from mythology, fantasy fiction, and the occult.
NWOBHM suffered the same fate as many other musical movements; the majority of its leading lights were unable to follow up their initial successes and the superstars moved further away from the genre towards mainstream hard rock.

 raphael.longbournprods.com » Blog Archive » the scruffy longhairs (nwobhm mystique part 2)
The nwobhm is one of those movements where many of the finest bands contributed just a lone, solitary — yet explosive and unforgettable — track to the catalogue.
Although nwobhm bands were widely-regarded as infusing the old heavy metal standard with the exuberance and pace of punk rock, to our much more jaded ears many of them are naively tame by modern standards.
And while the big money came knocking and sundered the nwobhm into those that failed and those that cashed in (effectively killing the movement altogether), there was for that briefest of moments a sense of self-fulfilling independence, in an industry that’s all about deceit and fabrication and corporate manipulation.

If it wasn't for them much of the NWOBHM movement would not have started -leaving the Thrash and Death sub-genres to never rise and also leaving Metal to die before its time.
Such bands as Metallica have featured their works as cover songs which has inspired a new interest in NWOBHM for the '90's and the band has, as a result, been trying to reform.

N.W.O.B.H.M. The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) signalled a rebirth in metal popularity in England, roughly around the years of 1980 to 1984 or so.
Though the time frame and nationality are the main defining components of NWOBHM, the majority of these bands also had a similar style, mixing prime 70's Brit metal (Judas Priest, Deep Purple, UFO) with a slight rough punk edge.

 TANK NWOBHM Encyclopedia's Entry
The newly-released TANK album turned out to be a hit-and-miss affair which largely lacked the impact of its predecessor, although they had kept the extended song structures and dumped any notions of commercial appeal by losing the keyboard backing and rejecting any overly-tuneful interludes.
At times, TANK had begun to resemble certain NWOBHM hopefuls, notably SABRE (a band from the same neck of the woods) and CRUCIFIXION (on "Too Tired To Wait For Love" and the tenderly-titled "Kill", for example), although the overall strength of their newest material just wasn't sufficiently high to consolidate their position as national heroes.
They also played an important part in the '20th Anniversary' NWOBHM festival held in Japan in the latter part of 1999, and appear on the live CD set released to commemorate the event.

I would be curious to hear if anyone else agrees about this article, maybe its just me being picky and everyone else thinks its fine but as articles go I say 7 out of 10 give me WWW.metal-gods.net any day they always have the info.
I really think UK nwobhm fans are on the march I dont know if its just fashion or for some finding their brothers records and discovering the stuff for the first time but its no longer one or two of us any more.
I looked back at Jess's review of the Nowbhm and think I may have been a bit too unfair, but trivia like that bugs me. Estranged your right its not a nwobhm data base just the lads take on things so I may be a bit too hard on the guy.

 GeekChat! - Metalcore v. NWOBHM
You have to admit that it's not as dumb as hair metal or the white trash stuff that was cool in 1998 because it calls for developed chops.
and yes i do agree that the metalcore scene sounds more influenced from the NWOBHM movement and the other early 80s bands that were influenced from them (early metallica and the sort).
Everyone is entitled to their opinions but I find it funny how it becomes trendy to not like certain guitars and decide that they are shite.

 [No title]
It was a great time to be a musician in a band as all the mystery and exclusivity of record releases was destroyed by the independent pioneers from 1976 onwards.
Sounds had been supporting the metal scene for years, featuring metal club nights in the UK when the punk scene was in full swing and therefore, the “flavour of the month” so to speak.
Whilst I am pleased the NWoBHM is having something of a renaissance and lots of the classic bands from that era are reforming, I believe that any progress made would be absorbed into the plethora of diverse metal sub divisions that exist today.

 NWOBHM - Vardis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
By far the most interesting of any NWOBHM bands to come my way to date is Vardis, a rock 'n' roll power trio from Wakefield whose self-evident qualities make it easy for a New Wave hick from the sticks (like me) to sell out without feeling either 'self-conscious' or 'compromised'.
As for the rest of their repertoire, Vardis aren't the easiest NWOBHM band to define.

 Welcome to the home of the Old School Metal Show
The true reverence afforded today to the original REINCARNATE sole 7 inches single by many members of the underground true metal scene (bands, labels, fans, record collectors) is a testimony to its importance to the NWOBHM aficionados and to the whole movement in general.
However, still very little is known about this underground British metal act from the early 80’s (which shows how fantastic bands are often still waiting to be exposed to a wider audience) but the internet solves these problems sometimes.
I seem to remember playing a gig at, what was then, Tiffany’s night club in Newcastle-under-Lyme, with a few other bands, no one band names spring to mind though.

As a matter of fact, I have often heard Dimmu Borgir's first three albums described that way, though they are probably not what you had in mind when starting this thread.
This brings up an interesting notion, that NWOBHM is not a genre per se, but a musical movement characterised by certain musical traits.
This kind of artistic pathway trodden by those artists who represent the fler side of music that is essentially not extreme does not connotate a 'split' between both genres, but a complete existence within the borders of both, simultaneously, and therefore the best combination of both.

So yeah, the book is comprised of reviews, by me, of pretty much every NWOBHM single there ever was (an appendix lists those considered false NWOBHM).
Most of these bands never made albums, and in many cases, one single was their only output.
For those who need a little reminding, the NWOBHM was an explosive metal movement that gripped the UK, approximately spanning the years 1979 to 1983.

The first is that for many, there's plenty of unfinished business to take care of and life does indeed begin at forty.
