Guest review by

NWOBHM: The new wave of British heavy metal; perhaps the most influential movement in metal history. Bands like Iron Maiden, Angel Witch, Raven, Blitzkrieg and Saxon dragged heavy metal - barely breathing after coming off worse in a bareknuckle brawl with punk - kicking and screaming into the 1980s. Just examine its legacy. Speed and aggression spawned thrash, lo-fi production and dark imagery begat black metal and the rest, as they say, is history.

  Nice debut. Simple and catchy heavy metal songs collection.
