It's hard to believe that in 4 years of the show's existence, we've never tackled this one. Better late than never.
This week Aaron and Chris head across the pond to celebrate one of metal's biggest milestones; the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. This monumental shift in heavy music was born in the United Kingdom in the late 70's, flourished in the early 80's, and was heavily responsible for the birth of thrash music.
This wave of heavy metal bands emerged due to the death of arena rock. Taking the attitude and hard edge of punk music, this group of British bands thumbed their noses at the new wave trend that was dominating the airwaves and cranked up their amps and their tempos and let'er rip. A number of bands from this very influential movement would go on to legendary status while many talented groups fell by the wayside. This week the guys aim to give you a heaping helping of both! In this NWOBHM-themed episode you'll get killer tracks from legends such as Judas Priest, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, and Def Leppard. You'll also hear great tracks from some of the lesser known acts that deserved more attention such as Fist, Witchfinder General, and the Tygers of Pan Tang. Other great acts featured include Fastway, Saxon and Raven. Check out this week's NWOBHM episode and SHARE with a friend!
